Project details Skill 1 out of 5 Easy Cost About $160 Estimated Time 6 hours Why do we build? For me, the motivation is often practical: I see a piece of furniture that I love, but can’t abide the hefty price. Take this console cabinet, for example. I spotted a similar one online for $325. I loved its striking black color and cane door and drawer- front details. So I snapped a photo and did some research. My penny-pinching instincts…

Shown: Architect Andrew Sidford’s design for the renovated house marries the 1880s Cape with a modern extension that features high ceilings and walls of windows.

Higher Temperatures and Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries go up significantly as temperatures rise, causing an average of 20,000 injuries a year in California alone and taking a particular toll on low-income workers, according to new research. In a study published this month, researchers looked at records from California’s worker’s compensation system—the nation’s largest—between 2001 and 2018, and found a connection between higher temperatures and injury for both indoor and outdoor jobs.

The bungalow is the work of LA-based designer Tamar Barnoon, whom we’ve gotten to know over the past few years as a stylist, a set designer for film, and, most recently, a designer of furniture and objects (see her work via Made in California: A Curated Collection of Handmade Furniture from Honeyed Figs).…


Wax Atelier in London: Purveyors of Beautiful, Natural Wax Products

In an industrial estate in Barking, East London, Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo are busy reinventing the medieval craft of chandlery. “We are very proud to bring manufacturing back to an area that once had a strong heritage of producing everyday goods for London,” explains Lola. “Wicker baskets, matches, soap, pencils, paint tins and toys were all made here … It’s a strong heritage that has since vanished from the area. Through our project, we are bringing back this activity to the area.” Above: Wax Atelier’s green tea tapered candles. The project is Wax Atelier. Founded in 2018, the studio…
