From an architect’s exhibit of paintings in London to a coveted collection of bath textiles, here’s what is on our collective radar this weekend.
- Kitchen island or no kitchen island? After Michelle’s piece on the matter, the rest of you weighed in. (Let us know your take.)
- Londoners: Stop into the inaugural exhibit of Francis Gallery (a new opening from the team behind Cereal), featuring paintings by architect Spencer Fung; the exhibit opens September 22.
- And save the date (November 18) for Beautiful & Useful, London’s newest craft fair.
- New from our all-time favorite linens purveyor: waffle-weave bath linens.
- Just launched: two new fall colorways from a cult favorite ceramics company.
- Fan let us know about Rams, a new film on Dieter Rams by Gary Hustwit (you’ll know him from Helvetica and Objectified). Among the reasons we’re intrigued: “Only well-made things can be beautiful.” See the list of screenings here (they’re selling out fast).
- One of Margot’s favorite shops in Winnipeg, Canada, Mûr, has been relaunched as June. Keep an eye out for a brick-and-mortar shop, coming soon. (Plus, spy a few of their wares in The Organized Home book.)
- Kristina moved into a new apartment and is coveting this mirror that doubles as clothes storage.
- The New Craftsmen in London is holding a late-night exclusive preview of their Malgorzata Bany exhibit on Monday, September 17 from 6 to 8 p.m.; stop in. (And take a tour of Bany’s 1,000-square-foot and inventively DIY apartment here.)
- Eight instant entryways, metal edition.
- High/low: folding camp stools for every budget.
