How radical are these chairs by Philippe Starck for Kartell? They are the perfect play on his signature ghost chair – whimsical, modern and elegant. I’d love to own a whole set someday but at $860 a pop, I’d settle for just one.
I absolutely love the raw beauty of these richly colored images of age-old New York City storefronts from James and Karla Murray‘s book Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York. (I used to live right around the corner from this bicycle shop on E 17th!) Sadly, at least a third of the stores in the book have closed since its publication, making the photographs evoke even more feelings of nostalgia in New Yorkers, visitors and ex-pats alike.
