Mohawk General Store Holiday Market

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.

The Corner Store, San Francisco

Tiring of the Prohibition-era style pervasive in San Francisco's bars and restaurants, the owners and design team behind recently opened The Corner Store opted to channel "something more in tune with the happy, hopeful, and welcoming vibe of a 1950s community corner store and soda shop—minus the kitsch and cliche of a typical diner," says Clinton Miller, the project's architect. Located on Masonic at Geary, right above the Geary underpass, the restaurant is a welcome addition to the neighborhood with a menu that tastes as good as the interior looks (be sure not to miss the house burger with bacon jam). "I wanted to create a light airy interior where someone could just as easily sit and enjoy the classic food with a homemade soda at lunch or a boozy milkshake after a nice long dinner," says Miller.

Webshop to Watch: Son & Dotter

Son & Dotter, a new webshop launched in September by Sabrina Bello, aims to bring hard-to-find Scandinavian designs to the U.S. market. Included in their growing roster are brands like HAY and A2, a manufacturer we've featured before but whose products weren't available stateside. We sent a few questions to Bello to find out how her store came to be and what to expect in the near future.

Nike Flyknit: Innovating Design

In the wake of the London Olympics, Nike teamed up with global curator Neville Wakefield and six other designers to dream up a structure that celebrates its latest product release, the Flyknit running shoe. Taking inspiration from the new product’s themes—it's lightweight, formfitting, sustainability-minded, and performance-oriented—these design leaders, who hail from engineering, education, art, and architectural backgrounds, dreamed up fantastical installations. Each designer was assigned a city to host the installation and they worked closely with the people in their respective locales, leading conversations and workshops to ensure that the sturcture would be successful. All of the designs boast a unique sensory experience, pushing the bounds of shape, color, size, and safety, and prove to be as innovative as the shoe that was the jumping off point. Structures are currently on display in New York, London, Rio, and Shanghai, with highly anticipated locations in Milan and Tokyo opening this October.

New From Misewell

Inspired by our Made in the USA product roundup in our October 2012 issue, which featured everything from eco-friendly wallpaper to LED lamps made from wood scraps, we bring you the latest from Misewell, a Milwaukee-based company that's a recent Dwell favorite. We profiled Vincent and Paul Georgeson, the two brothers behind the company, in our 2010 Young Guns roundup, and have continued to track their progress and new releases ever since. As the brothers put it, their main goal is to create furniture that will last for decades, both physically and aesthetically. “We’re not trying to follow any trends or do anything ostentatious,” says Paul. “We want our pieces to look great in 30 years rather than turning into hideous eyesores. We want our customers to pass this stuff on to their grandkids.” Here, a look at some of their latest products, introduced at this year's International Contemporary Furniture Fair and now available online, as well as some older favorites.
