I came across your blog and have some information about a project I know you and your readers will find very interesting.
The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is currently completing a $250 million expansion project. The museum extension has been designed by the famed architect Daniel Libeskind and will be called the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal.
As part of the project, Mr. Libeskind has also created his very first ever furniture piece, a chair that will sit in the in the centre of the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal. This chair, called the Spirit House Chair, is intended to complement and echo the Crystal design and will be also available for purchase.
I’m including a media advisory for the unveiling of the Spirit House Chair which will take place tomorrow, Wednesday May 9 2007 at 2 pm EST.
I wish I lived in Toronto so I could check this out. But Lauren has promised to send me some photos tomorrow so stay tuned. (If anyone out there is interested email me and I'll send you the PDF she sent.) Thanks Lauren!!
I was telling a new co-worker of mine the other day that I always forget to keep my eye out for good french decor magazines, and considering this is a bilingual city (Québec is just across the river), there are many french magazines available here. The next day she came to work with a stack of magazines called Décormag to lend me. It's a great magazine out of Montreal and generally caters to folks who don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a light fixture or a chair. In the majority of the photos you can spot pieces from Ikea. I will be checking out this magazine from now on when I see it in stores. (Thanks Helen!)
