Style is from Mars

Mars-lamp-chiasso Wide strips of white perforated (and recycled!) Lexan plastic forms an over-sized, contemporary globe that envelops and radiates the light.

I think my kitchen just added the Mars Pendant to its remodeling wish list...

Skinny fridge

Here I thought “split-level” referred only to homes—and among the least attractive ones at that. But this particular jargon has made a horizontal transfer of sorts to a very vertically-oriented product: Rangemaster’s FxF 60:40 features, a “sleek split-level layout with impressive capacity… perfect for those who are pushed for space, but won’t compromise on style.” The long and lean fridge-freezer is a veritable cornucopia of functionality.

Ridiculous Open-Concept Luxury Loft in SoHo



Every couple months I’ll spend a night sifting through luxury properties for sale in New York City. It’s the only place in the world where you can easily find 50+ listings ranging from $5 million - $75 million at any given time. Understanding the density of Manhattan, it’s always fascinating how expensive a square foot can cost.
Most of the luxury units available are jaw-dropping condos or tall/skinny townhouses; many are conversions from old factories of the past.
Last night I came across a unit for sale in the prestigious New Museum Building, located on 158 Mercer Street in SoHo. Listed at $6.95 Million USD, it was the open-concept living space that really caught my attention. A 2,800 square foot “room” that serves as a kitchen, office, den, dining and living room. Absolutely incredible!
