Just four months ago, recalls R & Company co-founder Evan Snyderman, an 85-year-old Wendell Castle sat on the concrete floor of his Scottsville, New York studio, chisel in hand, carving away at his latest creation.
"That’s what makes him a true artist," Snyderman says of the prolific woodworker, designer, and sculptor who died Saturday evening at his home outside of Rochester. "He’s always on to the next thing; he’s more interested in the future than the past."
At the beginning of his 60-year career, "artist" was not a word used to describe the makers of chairs and tables. But Castle, who was born in Emporia, Kansas in 1932, studied industrial design and sculpture at the University of Kansas, and moved to New York in the early 1960s, where he became an Artist in Residence and professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and set up a studio in nearby Scottsville, has spent a lifetime earning the title, filling countless notebooks, galleries, and museums with an endless stream of ideas..

CLINTON, Iowa (KWQC) — It’s a tribute to Clinton County history. The World War One monument is dedicated to the men from the county who made the supreme sacrifice during the war.
The memorial was built in 1930. The designer was French born sculptor Leonard Crunelle.
Time has taken its toll on the monument. So, the local historic preservation commission Is trying to land some grant money and perhaps money from the city to help restore the monument.
A company from Minnesota will do an assessment as to what needs to be done to the sculpture. Ninety years of corrosion has effected the statue. It could cost almost thirty thousand dollars to clean it up.
A soldier, grief stricken mother, and two other figures adorn the statue. Alongside the monument are the names of other local veterans who died or went missing in action during World War One.
The goal is to get the sculpture on the National Historical Registry. The U.S. Department of the Interior could make that final decision.
For architect Giancarlo Valle, designing the Brooklyn loft that he shares with his wife, AD’s Style Director Jane Keltner de Valle, and their two young children was about more than reconfiguring a space to suit a growing family. For Valle—who worked for A-list architecture firms like SHoP and Snøhetta (where one of his projects was the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)—before opening his own office in 2016, “This was the project that got me into interiors,” he explains. (Those interiors include a Manhattan townhouse for Barne..
What happens when you put four architects in one room? More like a 4,000-square-foot warehouse that has been sitting empty for years? “Battles and foot-stomping,” laughs Apoorva Shro. At the new headquarters of reD Architects in Prabhadevi, Mumbai, Shro sits alongside her partners, Ekta and Rajiv Parekh, and Maithili Raut. Recently shifted from their Parel set-up, the four brought together more than a decade’s worth of experience in architecture and design to their new space.
The office opens up to a sprawling workspace, punctuated by long desks, and high wooden ceilings and steel beams. Whimsy and humour are key to the character, translated through cardboard cut-out table lamps or the slate kitchen counter, or even the rubber band sliding doorway. A “play” area at the back, with a small garden and concrete table in the middle, allows for a pause amid the din. The four, along with their private cabins that reflect individual (read: disparate) sensibilities, pool their outputs in the co..

Target had a big win in its home business late last year with a collection by Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV's Fixer Upper. Hearth & Hand with Magnolia and its modern farmhouse aesthetic is honey for many of Target’s shoppers, who want a touch of Joanna’s signature old-is-new style. The product line’s appeal is its distinctive, yet familiar and comfortable design at prices everyone can afford.
But for other shoppers Target needs to attract – Millennials who are in their prime for home-related purchases – it may not their cup of tea. Urban Millennials in their first (and likely small) apartment or home leaning towards a more contemporary design that won’t clutter tight spaces may not be drawn to that farmhouse-inspired look. Now Target has a home line designed for them: Made By Design.
Target sets the table in a statement: “Guests – especially those establishing their first homes – crave quality everyday items that will simplify t..
