Meanwhile, today is your last chance to guess the subject of our sneak-peek photograph for a chance to win a free copy. Here’s a quote from the designer, whose pictured shelving units are among the many furnishings he’s made for the Los Angeles store his girlfriend founded in 2009: “At first I wanted to make the opposite of this curving, really design-y stuff. I wanted to just make a shape, a triangle shape, but at the same time make it functional. Wood was just the material I was capable of using.”
