Here’s our weekly roundup of summer happenings, pop-ups, and more:
One of our favorite houseware shops, Lekker Home in Boston, is opening a new, much larger space at 38 Wareham Street. Go to Lekker Home for more info.
We’re admiring Ai Weiwei’s only US home in Ancram, NY, designed for an art-collecting couple (it just hit the market; see photos here).
Flow Gallery in London is organizing their second site-specific exhibition at St Peters Church, Cambridge, which neighbors Kettles Yard. On view will be functional porcelain vessels, jugs, bowls, teapots and cups. (Flow is organizing a visit to the exhibition on Wednesday, August 7th, from London. Interested?

Brook Farm General Store is collaborating with nonprofit organic farm Share the Harvest in East Hampton (55 Long Lane); they’ll be offering a selection of home goods from their online shop (15 percent of all sales will go to support Share the Harvest).
In Montauk, designer Robert McKinley has opened his second shoppable, rentable house called the Federal bungalow; also see his first project at Vintage Summer: A Seventies-Style Shoppable Airbnb in Montauk).
