A Bright Work Space in Milwaukee

Back in December 2010 we profiled furniture designers Vincent and Paul Georgeson of Misewell. Not only did we love their designs but we were also smitten with their work space. Growing up in southeastern Wisconsin, the brothers used to hang out in their father’s basement woodshop, fascinated by the process of building things. Now they spend their days in a beautiful light-filled studio, surrounded by their own designs (and dog Penny).

Pum and Jake of Design Army

Design Army, Washington, D.C.

For co-founders Jake and Pum Lefebure of Design Army, family and business work well together. The married graphic designers have created a design firm with a distinct point of view and for that, their work has garnered numerous awards since its founding in 2003. And, nearly a decade on, they have designed for clients as diverse as Washingtonian Bride & Groom, Bloomingdale's, and the Washington National Ballet to re-imagining Neenah Papers. Dwell stopped by their offices for a tour and a talk.

Coffee Break: Heath Ceramics and Blue Bottle

Heath Ceramics recently opened a factory and retail location in San Francisco and partnered with Blue Bottle Coffee to open a cafe inside of the 60,000-square-foot former industrial laundry. Thanks to the keen design eye of Commune—who helped with the look and feel of the interiors—and structural wizardry of Charles Hemminger of hemmingerarchitects—who helped refine the architecture—Heath has a new home at 18th Street and Alabama befitting its wares. "We needed more space," says Heath co-owner Cathy Bailey, who had a studio in the neighborhood years ago. "The original building in Sausalito was built in 1959 with the agenda to be a dinnerware factory. Over the years, it's grown and we have no more space. The difference between the new Heath and the old Heath is that we do everything ourselves—sell directly, manufacture, and design in-house. We didn't want to build way out in the valley, away from everyone; we wanted to stay close to customers, in a vibrant environment."

Tiny Studio Cabin by Hinterland Design

It doesn't get much more idyllic than this: An illustrator of children's books who lives on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia needed a quiet workspace that was nearby, but separate from, her family's bustling household. She contacted local designer, artist, and builder Riley McFerrin of Hinterland Design to replace an existing shed on her property, perched on top of a steep hill, by maintaining the old outbuilding's small footprint. The design brief? "Small but airy, bright but cozy, and most importantly modern, yet in keeping with the rustic charm of the country."
