I’m loving the latest addition to PalletForm, a line of furniture from Oakland’s BaDesign that is made from repurposed shipping pallets. This new upholstered stool is a leather-wrapped update on the wood-topped version, but the coolest aspect is that it moves with you. 

The Presidential Candidates have nothing on California Home+Design's rabid editors/design enthusiasts as they debate the fabulousness of a six-figure chicken coop. Where’s the moderator?

The 487-person-long Napa Valley Wine Wave has come and gone with records crashing down like a pile of hastily stacked wine glasses, but there is still plenty to do in Wine Country in October. 1.

I've always considered myself a city girl, through and through, but as my days get busier, and I get, well, let's face it, older, the slow life of the country gets more and more appealing.

In LA's Beachwood Canyon neighborhood, this 3-unit building is a well-preserved cross section of Los Angeles design in the 20th Century.

Nothing lights up a piece of wood like the glow of silver leaf, but the new functional works by Anzfer Farms highlight the unsung quality of the metal—its reflective nature.     

British designer Paul Smith adds to his growing roster of collaborations with Point by Paul Smith, a textile collection that’s pitch perfect on iconic chair designs from The Republic of Fritz Hansen.  Arne Jacobsen designed the iconic Egg and Swan chairs in 1958 for the lounge of Copenhagen’s Royal Hotel.

A Mid-Century house by John Lautner, a Frank Lloyd Wright disciple who would go on to design some of Southern California's most iconic houses, is open this Sunday from 2:00PM to 5:00PM and worth a visit.

In the run-up to this year’s 17th annual Los Angeles Antiques Art + Design Show, the organizing committee came face to face with an inconvenient truth—in co-chair Robert Wilson’s words: “LA is not really an antiques city.” So what’s a premier west coast design showcase to do?

The story goes that architect Louis Sullivan first uttered the architectural edict about form following function at the turn of the century, and the idea has been a cherished touchstone ever since. But anyone who follows design knows the truth: People often put looks before comfort, durability and common sense. Case in point: Cardboard furniture.
