Our annual Best Of issue is out now and inside it, we round up the very best products, places and people of 2014. 

We take you inside four fabulous homes: a Waiheke Island, Auckland, beach house designed by Box Living; a South African home with show-stopping ocean views ; a trio of sleek urban Melbourne, Australia, townhouses; and a modernist, industrial home in Canada. 

Auckland-based ceramicist Rachel Carley shows us inside her Mount Albert home and shares some of her most prized possessions and a couple of collectors talk about their obsession with mid-century design. 

We also take you to one of America’s best (and most tech-savvy) small cities, Seattle. Our editor travelled to the city in Washington state to meet some seriously clever creatives and to get the low-down on best places to be seen.

And there’s a great offer in it: Until 1 February 2015, we’re offering Urbis lovers a very special subscription deal - sign up for a 12-month subscription (worth $68) and you’ll receive a $92 Antipodes Gift Pack! To take advantage of this offer, click here and use the promo code ANTIPODES.

Pick up your copy of Urbis issue 83 from any decent book store or supermarket, or get the digital version, here.
