Richard Sapper's Masterpiece

The Tizio Lamp


A little over a year ago now we featured one of our favorite tastemakers in the world, BRAD DUNNING, who chatted with us about TEN LUST-WORTHY LAMPS. (Incidentally, for those of you who haven't seen the article, it's one of our favorites ever.) In that article, Brad cites one of the iconic lamps: The Tizio Lamp. Designed by Richard Sapper for Artemide in 1972, the Tizio is, well, looking a lot better than ... Read More

On Hedges, Behind Hedges

The Micheline Lerner Estate

Real Estate

So there's this little street in the Hollywood Hills called Hedges. It's not a street you'd stumble upon or find on your own. It takes quite a few pretty tricky turns to get up there, but once you do, you're rewarded with around a block of the most stunning houses in all of Los Angeles. Amongst them is a Paul Williams, a John Lautner, a Marmol-Radziner, one of the best moderne ... Read More

A $225 Million Pocket Listing?

Real Estate

In the current hot Los Angeles and New York real estate markets (and others too), the prettiest word in the English language is "pocket listing." Walk into top real estate offices and you'll hear: "Have you got anything off-market?" "We've seen everything on the MLS." "We've been looking for six months and haven't seen anything." "It sold before it went on the market." You get the drift. And so, for those ... Read More

It's a Numbers Game

Alphabet & Numbers in the Home


Today's story all started with a photo. We were perusing through BACKEN GILLAM & KROEGER'S WEBSITE yet again - pretty much a daily occurrence for us until we get our own Backen Gillam house - and saw a gorgeous house with Robert Indiana's LOVE in its outdoor area. (See above photo.) Our minds started wandering. Was this, one of our favorite pieces of art anywhere, a gift from husband to wife? Was it just a ... Read More

Landmark Riviera Spanish

La Rivera

Real Estate

We’re watching the Oscars, and we have old Hollywood glamour on the brain. Which is why today’s listing is oh-so-perfect. Named La Rivera because it of its location in the famous Riviera Area of Pacific Palisades, today’s spotlight house was rumored to have been built by builder Alphonso Bell (also responsible for much of the development of Bel Air) for famous producer Hal Roach – a prolific producer who most known for his ...

The Collector's Collector: Patrick Dragonette

Guest Editor

PATRICK DRAGONETTE fell into the world of design through the world of collecting. And you can feel it. His store feels like a collection of what he would want in his own house if he owned a 10,000 square foot house and could stuff it with all things beautiful. Patrick caught the collecting bug at home in rural Ohio. Once he tells you his background you understand: There’s a lot of Midwestern in ... Read More

Tread Lightly

Aerin Launches Shoes


Guys, you’re excused from class today. We’re generally intentionally unisex but this is not an article for you. (And if it is, well, no comment.) A few months ago we wrote on the debut of perpetual-“it” girl Aerin Lauder’s HOME LINE. We had been anticipating Aerin Home forever, and it didn't disappoint. Of course we knew the accessory pieces would be ultra-chic, but we were surprised by their affordability. Now ... Read More
