Our weekly round up of what our design friends on the web are reporting on.

What events not to miss this weekend, from sales to exhibitions to open houses.

Their is sooooo much tile in the world, and I guess that makes sense considering

So often architectural gems get torn down and replaced by the latest design fad, only to have the new structure look dated in a matter of years. It's always a pleasure to see projects that don't wipe away all traces of the past.

I was so inspired by the amazing (and unconventional) design work being done in felt and the range that was being shown with a single material, I decided to do a little round up of paper art and design. 

Let's just start with what we know about felt. Felt can be less than designed at times, but it can also be amazing. 

In honor of summer, we put up a collection of our favorite outdoor rooms we've shot over the years. We then asked our readers to send in their own outdoor rooms - and here they are! Which one inspires you the most? Vote!

While a weekend of brilliant weather left not a cloud in the sky up here, you wouldn't know it based on the design world's latest offerings.

Please join us in welcoming Artistic Tile to San Francisco with a private reception at Showplace East! Join your fellow Bay Area architects and designers to eat, drink, and mingle with pride alongside the world's most beautiful stone and tile!

Is it wrong to be contemplating fall when we've yet to even step foot into summer? If so, I'm afraid I can't help it. Ever since junior high and the ritual of picking out a new backpack and school clothes, fall has held a sense of design renewal to me.
