Kelly Wearstler Just Won 2020 With Her New Furniture Collection

LA designer Kelly Wearstler has had a big year, from the launch of her first book in 10 years to the rollout of her designs for Proper Hotels — most notably Santa Monica, which has become a major source of Instagram fodder for its chair orgy, its iconic curved headboard, and commissions from young designers like Chris Wolston and Wentrcek/Zebulon. Today we got a peek at her new collection for 2020, and it continues in the same excellent vein

Your Guide to the 40+ Designers Who Made This Year’s Design Miami Great

Whatever anyone's opinion on last week's Design Miami fair, we could all agree on at least one thing — thank God there were no bananas. There were a few cheesy star power moments, to be sure, but compared to the circus at Art Basel, the design fair felt like a bastion of integrity and sound judgment. In our tent, we had lustrous, emerald-green consoles, a sustainably-sourced hairy pink bench, and the coolest hand-sculpted fireplace we've ever seen. In theirs, people were lined up for miles to take a selfie with a piece of fruit.

This South Korean Furniture Collection Proves Tiny Pleats are the Defining Trend of 2019

The first time I saw South Korean designer Chiho Cheon's lacquered cement and corrugated cardboard Criteria chairs, I joked to Monica that they were the furniture equivalent of Issey Miyake's ready-to-wear cult-favorite Pleats Please brand.

Exhibit Columbus Washington Street Installations

See How 5 Design Galleries Are Transforming This Tiny Midwestern City

The seed for Exhibit Columbus began back in 2014, when designer Jonathan Nesci created an installation of reflecting tables, called 100 Variations, in the sunken courtyard of Columbus's First Christian Church, built by Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen in 1942. "It was essentially to show proof of concept that a designer could make an installation in dialogue with the city," says Nesci. Three years later, the resulting design festival, which runs through November, boasts 18 separate installations.
