Backbend Starfish Coffee Table

Love it or hate it, there’s not much room for ambiguity or apathy with Misha Kahn’s “Backbend Starfish Puts on all Her Jewels for Her Workout.” This is a collector’s piece of an oversized low table (90” diameter) made of stainless steel, glass, and seashells that glistens and gleams with joie de vivre while expertly dipping its toes into the welcoming waters of kitsch. Shown this past May at the Nomad Monaco Collectible Design Fair, Backbend Starfish resembles that placid creature, but also a...

In an 1850s brick townhouse in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, serial renovators Jean Lee and Tzu-Wei Lee called on architect Elizabeth Roberts to rethink the building, which had been divided intwo four apartments, as one.

Opinion Setting The Record Straight, NRA Haters You're a Problem USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- I’ve had it with the attacks on the NRA, I expect it from “The Trace” and “Mother Jones,” but I find it repugnant when so-called 2A supporters use those questionable sources to scorch the NRA.

The Largest J.R.R. Tolkien Exhibit in Generations Is Coming to the U.S.: Original Drawings, Manuscripts, Maps & More

The preteen years may remain the most opportune ones in which to pick up the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, but whatever the period in life at which they find their way in, most readers who make the journey through Middle-earth never really leave th...
