Dwell's founder Lara Deam shares her first memory from her childhood home in Wisconsin.
"My first memory of 'idea based design' actually happened in a Victorian. I was three when we moved from Evanston, IL to Janesville, WI. The only memory that I have of moving day was finding this room and going to the far right, smaller, room. In that part of the entry, there was a small bench and I felt a sense of relief and peace that in this large house, there was something my size. Ever since that moment, I have always been fascinated by the emotional impact that architecture and design can have on us."
