Check out Beyond the Box, a show about people who do their own remodeling and save money while doing it. I have only watched one episode but it definitely makes you want to own your own place even more.

For all those bidding on the phone/internet or just unable to be in Manhattan, I snapped some shots of the important work inside this Saturday’s Saturday @ Phillips Auction. It should be exciting as the NY Art Book Fair coincides in the same arena, bringing lots of traffic. After the jump, visual evidence.
Mobb Deep, Survival of the Fittest, 1995
I was unable to make it to the Street installation of Containers but, Greg Lamarche has posted some flicks of his part on his blog. I really dig how he was able to translate found material into his own style. The opening of the Gallery installation at Anonymous is tonight from 6 to 9 pm, I suggest you stop by.

I keep seeing this ad in design mags so I had to take a look and see what they have. They have a lot. This desk is my favorite. It comes in a few finishes but the white is my favorite. Beautiful simple design by Nueva Linea.
Designed by the Mexican collective NEL for Nanimarquina, the Global Warming Rug portrays a polar bear on a very tiny piece of ice.
Translating Hollywood is a really cool book that I picked up recently. Written by Sam Sarowitz (whose collection the posters are from) and published by Mark Batty Publisher, the book displays foreign posters/interpretations for Major Motion Pictures in a couple different countries . It is great to look at all of the different designs for one movie, some classics. After the jump, a couple of my favorites.
