Review: Caress

It's a genius name for a sex toy, because it conveys so much. Caress, like the breeze casually ruffling a line of laundry. Like the back of your lover's hand against your cheek.

Très Chic: A Smart, Stylish Parisian Apartment Designed for a Young Family (and Cat, Too)

When we first encountered this exceedingly clever Paris duplex by SABO project, we wondered why it had been dubbed the “Sacha Apartment.” Is that the client’s name? Was it inspired by the street address? Turns out, Sacha is the name of the clients’ beloved cat. We should have guessed. Among the most salient features of this gut renovation, which combined two apartments into one, are the unexpected feline-sized pass-throughs carved into multiple walls on the first floor. The owners, a young coupl...
