“ Ultimately, the cities that we build are like pianos and the people are the music. Without good compositions and skilled musicians, the piano is useless.”
– Paolo Soleri
Giving thanks for Paolo Soleri.
If there were an official sound to Arizona, it would be the chime of Paolo Soleri’s wind-bells. Although this fascinating man left our world in April 2013, his voice has not been silenced. His bells – like doorbells that announce your arrival to another way of living – serve as reminders of what is possible when we approach our world with kindness and a sense of community.
If your holiday plans include champagne, champagne and more champagne (who, me?) then we have an exciting message for you: The annual DWR Champagne Chair Contest™ is coming! To enter, create a miniature chair using only the foil, label, cage and cork from no more than two champagne bottles.
Topping wish lists for 57 years, the Eames® Lounge Chair began with a desire to create a chair with “the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” Today it is widely considered one of the most significant designs of the 20th century, and for a brief time it’s on sale and shipping for free.
Our gift to you: the timeless gift of know-how. Learn about style, drinks, books and food from some of our favorite aficionados. Watch their engaging videos and enter for a chance to win an Eames® Hang-It-All from DWR and a $500 gift certificate from emerging retailer Of a Kind.
