  • Margot is delving into, from afar, the design show Radical Acts at Harewood, a historic house museum in Yorkshire (it was furnished by Chippendale; the gardens are by Capability Brown). The exhibit explores ways craft can “help us to address urgent crises in life and society today, and looking to a future where we might live in a more environmentally and socially responsible way,” featuring the likes of Ilse Crawford and Sebastian Cox. Take a look virtually—or in person—here.
