Recently my husband and I replaced our mailbox with a new locking version to keep the neighborhood kids from hijacking our Netflix. The only downfall, locking mailboxes aren't exactly sexy. Truth be told we never would have classified any mailbox as sexy until we came across this concept! Me-Yow!

Now don't get me wrong, we've featured many attractive modern options and sleek powdercoating and clean lines make me go weak in the knees like any other mid century or modern enthusiast, but they don't seem to hold the pizazz that this new design concept from Clare Hsu holds.

Clare aims at getting people back in touch with their mail and merging the traditional with the new digital age. Her design opens with the recognition of the homeowners finger print and even text messages you when your mail is delivered. It locks — but is still playful with color and looks modern and sleek without being bulky.

What do you think of the design? Do you want text messages from your mailbox or are you just fine with the standard options from your local hardware store? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
