Pilar Viladas has written a nice short introduction to some of the upcoming events, in an article entitled “Now Showing | Design Fever” in the T-Magazine section of The New York Times, in and around the 23rd annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair,   with stops at the Javits Center, of course, but also in Chelsea, Soho, Noho and the East Village.  The article includes a interesting, though brief, slideshow of some of the wonders on view.

Pilar Viladas has written Part 2 of her Salone del Mobile (Milan Design Week, or Milan Furniture Fair to some) wrap-up, entitled, hardly coincidentally, “Milan Report | The Wrap-Up, Part II” in the T-Magazine (or is it The Moment?) section of The New York Times, highlighting some of (t)he(i)r favorites from this year’s outstanding, vast, offering.  Among those favorites you’ll see, in the fine photos by Mattia Zoppellaro and others, Konstantin Grcic‘s discretely paranthetic folding screen, Entre Deux, above,  Maria Volokhova‘s slightly disturbing Dolci Lacrime teapot, the seemingly beribboned Plaid Bench series by Raw-Edges, below, and others.

Milan Design Week Wrap-Up – Highlights of Salone del Mobile Milan 2011

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 20 April 2011

The Klara rocker, by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso, looks old-fashioned and modern at the same time.

Pilar Viladas has written a short, to-the-point article entitled “Milan Report | The Wrap-Up, Part I” for the T-Magazine section of The New York Times, offering her take on some of the highlights of the bewilderingly vast Salone del Mobile 2011 (Milan Design Week) which took place last week in Milan.  What catches her attention?  Well, to begin with, rockers and rugs.  And Urquiolan ubiquity.  An abundance of very nice photos, as seen above and below, by Mattia Zoppellaro.

Architect Philip Johnson Designed Residence – Arch…itecture

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 11 April 2010

Pilar Viladas is right on the money when she describes the residence as channeling “de Chirico” in her short article entitled, archly enough, “Arch Sophisticate” in T-Magazine in The New York Times (online) on the Philip Johnson – designed residence and its recent, meticulous restoration.  Take a look at the house and its “luxurious new landscape”.  Very nice slideshow.
