Photos: Brian W. Ferry
My favourite photos from Brian Ferry's shoot of Bright Lyons on my very last day of work. Anyone who's visited the shop knows it makes an amazing overall impression - kids were constantly and forcefully pulling their parents through the door before they realized we sold furniture - but the details were partly what made working there fun. Even before it was photographed, that stack of Picabia books hanging out on Paul's desk was probably one of the nicest things I've seen.

When I was interning in the architecture and design department at MoMA last summer I got to take occasional and, for me, completely thrilling short field trips around New York (and, once, outside the city). The first was a visit to Mondo Cane's warehouse, where the owner, Patrick, had filled a circuit of fifth-floor hallways with children's chairs. Dozens of them! Spanning a century, some looking like their parents (little Bertoias and Thonets), a bunch I'd never seen, and all up to your knee.
It looks like some are for sale at Partners & Spade. If I had a few hundred dollars kicking around, I'd definitely consider adopting one or two.
