Take a look at what’s on our radar this week.

The Citizenry’s Butterfly Chair in copper and leather went on sale yesterday—it’s already sold out in white. 
  • We’re delighted to welcome House of Brinson to the Say Media family. Check out the site’s fab new design (powered by Say’s publishing platform Tempest).
  • Mark your calendars: Design Junction is coming to the London Design Festival, September 18-21 at the Sorting Office, 21-31 New Oxford Street, London.
  • On view at the Royal Institute of British Architecture, an exhibit of Edwin Smith photographs curated by Margaret Howell.
  • There’s no way we’d live in a house that hangs off a cliff, but we like admiring it from a distance.
  • Our new favorite real estate website? Stadshem, a compilation of stylish Swedish houses on the market, including this two-bedroom apartment in Gothenburg.
  • Fashion designer Vera Wang talks to the New York Times about her early career and her studio.
  • Transcendent Objects, which opens September 19 at Room 406, in Chicago, will feature the work of Ryota Aoki, Lilith Rockett, and Sarah Nishiura.
  • Our friends at Bí  & Me, a Vietnamese restaurant in Upstate New York are currently crowdfunding for their second outpost.
  • We’re inspired by a bathroom transformation spotted on Hometalk (spoiler: concrete counters are involved).
  • This weekend Dalilah is planning to construct a DIY garment rack found on Homemade Modern.
  • Would you spend the night in an Ikea showroom? A reporter at UK newspaper Telegraph jumped at the opportunity. Read about it here.
  • Calling all California-based design professionals: Here’s your chance to enter the 2015 California Home & Design Awards.
  • Happy to see one of our favorite photographers, Brian Ferry, on SF Girl by Bay. For more, take a look at designer Lena Corwin’s townhouse in Brooklyn (photographed by Ferry).
  • Julie picked a cushy navy blanket for Coastal Living’s Beach House Must-Haves list.
  • New to Current Obsessions: Each week we’ll highlight a Pinterest board and an Instagram account that we’ve been admiring. This week we’re eyeballing photographer Bonnie Tsang’s Architecture Board and Instagram feed. And don’t forget to connect with us, too, on Pinterest and Instagram.

For more from this week on Remodelista, have a look at our Minimalist Glamour issue, and head over to Gardenista to see Glamour in the Garden.
