Sarah emailed me to let me know about a website she and some friends started, ucinteriors, where people from all over the world can share photos of their flats, young designers can present their work, members can post articles and ask questions and all sorts of fun stuff. It's only a week old and they plan to build up a social international network for everyone who is interested in how people live all over the world and who wants to get in contact with people from other countries. So go have a peek. Here are some photos from the site.
I also received an email from Tom at Wonk (in New York) to say they are opening their second shop in Williamsburg and are having a little party the 22nd to celebrate (6:30 pm 160 North 4th Street b/t Bedford and Driggs). Great store...here's a sample.
