As we approach our kitchens' busy seasons (Thanksgiving and Christmas are our Super Bowl), I asked each of our EG team members what their must-have kitchen item is that they use every day.

Splitting the Difference

Splitting the Difference

In American design, we tend to choose an era, and stick with it.  A home is traditional, or it's modern.  And there's not much mixing between the two. 

In French homes however, tulip tables are mixed with lush daybeds and antique chandeliers.

A drive from Hudson to Manhattan took us through New Canaan, Connecticut recently, which of course took us to Phillip Johnson's Glass House.   The tour was an inspiring lesson in some central concepts in mid-century modern architecture.

10 Mid-Century Design Icons

There are some designs that are so recognizable and memorable that no matter where you see them, you just know them.  The Volkswagen Bug, The Stratocaster, and the Apple Macintosh are classic classic examples of such design icons.

When Time Stands Still

There are certain times in my life when time stands still:  when I put my phone away and read, when I'm in a museum, when I'm having dinner with a friend,  when I'm cooking, when I'm writing a letter, any time I'm alone with my sister.

We seem to have a mutual desire to see the leaves change color. Maybe it is in the knowledge that this colorful season is so fleeting, it almost feels like you are in on some beautiful secret.

Sparkle & Shine | Collecting Vintage Copper

The French have a way of incorporating beauty into everyday tasks.  

When we’re visiting France and one of our friends invites us into her kitchen, and we see all the beautiful vintage copper pots, pans and vessels, we get a bit jealous.
