Attention all lovers of modern design!
{me, me, me!}

Just hitting the bookshelves, Design Research is a beautiful autobiography of the, now closed, store of the same name in Boston. Influential to many of the beautiful and innovative designs seen in Target, IKEA, and Crate & Barrel...a few of my favorite shopping spots...Design Research continues to amaze and inspire. The founder of DR, Ben Thompson, encouraged people to purchase everyday things in ways they never had by giving them access to fantastic objects and accessories. In doing so, he fulfilled the promise of the book's subtitle: "The Store That Brought Modern Living to American Homes."

Can't wait to flip through this one!
