Making its only West Coast stop before shipping out to Mexico and Japan, Antibodies: The Works of Fernando and Humberto Campana, 1999-2009 is currently on view at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California. The Campana Brothers have been at the fore of the design world not just for their playful forms and embrace of overlooked materials (stuffed animals, anyone?), but because the Brazilian duo has continued to surprise. From now until February 24 you've got as good a chance as any to see a decade of their best work under one roof in sunny Palm Springs. Click through for quick tour of what's put the Campanas squarely on the international furniture map.
The chill of winter is soon to set in. Thinking toward blustery days ahead, we've corralled a series of modern homes set amid snowy surroundings and with cozy interiors, ranging from a cabin built to withstand an alpine avalance to an upstate New York renovation with an all-glass wall.
The good folks at Los Angeles's Mohawk General Store have a holiday market located just two doors from their main storefront (profiled in our "To Live and Buy in L.A." story from the April 2011 issue of Dwell). The designs—ranging from ceramics to furniture to lighting—are a mix of vintage finds and new pieces from local artisans; everything is made in the USA. Owner Kevin Carney says the best way to see what's new in the pop-up is to follow them on Instagram and look for images tagged with #mohawkholidaymarket, but in the meantime, flip though our slideshow for a taste of what's on their menu. The shop is located at 4017 West Sunset Boulevard and is open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. seven days a week until January 5. On Friday, November 30, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Mohawk is hosting an opening party, so stop on over to shop, have a drink, and meet the craftspeople.
While we can all heed that age-old axiom, "Never judge a book by its cover," we're swooning over the façades of these homes. Whether your design curiosity is piqued by the sight of a cozy abode tucked in the woods or an urban dwelling built on a bustling city street, you'll enjoy the exterior inventiveness of these homes.
