It is not to try to join anything but to create themselves, and to see what it is that they want to do, and to do it. And not just join a religion or become a part of anything.
What resonates with me is that you don't have to just join something that you would like to be part of. You can be your own catalyst - I think it would be more fun that way anyway.

I had to look this lamp up after walking past Haute Living on Kidzie the other day. They were on display and I wanted to pop in to find out more (more so to take a picture) but I didn't have the time or the gusto to walk into a design space and pull out my iPhone. The lamps are designed by an interior architect (naturally) by Secto Design out of Finland. I will own a couple of these in my lifetime. Love them - the pics don't even do them justice.

Studio designed by British Architect David Adjaye. I am pretty sure I have a post somewhere on this blog of mine about David Adjaye - or it may be in my scrapbook. He is a young architect definitely making his mark at an age many (or most) do not. His work is innovative, youthful, and, simply put, just rather cool.

I like this concept - refurbishing the old to make new, fresh and modern. I have to say, I think I am over the whole vintage look entirely (I used to dream of having a Shabby Chic/Flea Market/Anthopologie-looking place) - but this is a way to use the old in a non-dusty or sneeze-inducing way. Color Reform, a modern rug line from ABC Carpet & Home, recolors vintage Turkish rugs in unexpected hues of fuchsia, acid green and the like. I like.

After posting the below entry on the book shop designed by Front Studio, I took a gander at their site and stumbled across their blog - Lunch With Front Studio. I love it! These two women architects have this blog that they update 2x daily with what they had for lunch and then around tea time with their sweet of choice. Their tagline on why they lunch: "A reminder to stop, chill, breathe in fresh air and most impostantly, EAT. Architects by profession, we're also ladies who lunch." Check it out here - Lunch With Front Studio.
