"If you ask me what I came into this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud." -Emile Zola

  • An important auction of Scandinavian furniture is on tap for Pierre Bergé & Associates in Brussels on April 27, 2015. Given the popularity of mid-century modern at the moment, I bet the auction will bring seriously high prices for storied pieces. When I came across the sale, it brought to mind the moment in history […]

  •   Kawara at the Guggenheim through May 3 I came across a post on Art21, an organization now affiliated with PBS, titled The Walker Curates the News: 02.09.15 that shares what we at adroyt consider two important artistic mentions: Ben Davis’s visit to the Guggenheim’s On Kawara—Silence, which he wrote for artnet (the show is up through May […]

  • During the preview of the MoMA Design Store’s new spring arrivals several weeks ago, I enjoyed touring the new offerings with Chay Costello, the assistant director of merchandising for the store. I was impressed with how knowledgeable she was about all of the products, not a surprise given the staff in charge of acquiring new […]

  • On January 15th, I attended a press conference at the Italian Consulate announcing the details for the Salone del Mobile 2015, which takes place in Milan in April. After so many years of dire financial news the world over, I was heartened to hear Italy, such an important player in the US design industry, share promising economical […]

  • We’re suckers for great design with a philanthropic bent. When we heard about the good the founder of O’Sun, Alain Gilles, a Belgian designer, was accomplishing in poor communities on the African continent where 600-million people live without electricity by providing off-the-grid villages with Nomad lanterns, we decided it would be a positive New Year gesture to […]
