We Thought We Were Over Terrazzo Until We Saw This Epic Apartment in Lithuania

Why do some trends fizz out, while some stick around and — in many cases — keep coming back stronger year after year? Take terrazzo: We've been hawking that gorgeous, endlessly reconfigurable aggregate since at least 2013, but the design world's adoration of it has hardly waned in the six years since. Still, when you find an application that stops you in your tracks, it’s worth noting, which we happily did this week with an apartment in Lithuania by DO Architects.

At Gray Matters’s New Bower-Designed Showroom, the Shop Matches the Shoes

Since founding her cult-favorite shoe line Gray Matters in 2015, designer Silvia Avanzi has made sculptural heels her signature — suede-covered cubes, Plexiglas diamonds, hand-painted stones, and lacquered eggs have all offered support for her sandals, pumps, boots, and slingbacks. So it makes sense that when Avanzi went looking for a studio to design her new Brooklyn showroom, she chose Bower, a firm that knows a thing or two about unexpected sculptural details.
