What we're reading: Mies


We're kicking off our summer reading with Detlef Mertins' amazing monograph, Mies (Phaidon). A full review will follow in a few weeks (or however long it takes to meander through 560 pages of Mies). Until then, drop us a comment to let us know what you're reading or to suggest what we should read next.

The new DWR Houston Studio is now open and getting rave reviews. Sarah Rufca of the Houston Chronicle writes, "The new Design Within Reach studio in Highland Village is the first store of its kind in Texas."

She continues, "Just across from Restoration Hardware's stucco fortress of luxury in Highland Village, the two-story windows that wrap around the new Design Within Reach studio leave little to the imagination, beckoning instead with Eames chairs and Noguchi coffee tables dramatically lit by satellite chandeliers and artichoke lamps."

Stop by and see what all the excitement is about. We look forward to seeing you.
