A Chic, Affordable Living-Room Set That You Can Assemble Without Tools

Here's How Much the Mansion From The OC Is Selling For

California, here we come. The house that served as the exterior for Sandy, Kirsten, and Seth Cohen's home (and that of their wayward ward Ryan Atwood) on The OC is for sale for $6.25 million. While the show's fictional dwelling included a pool house, the real one features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread across 6,376 square feet. Outside there's a pool and four acres of land, but no pool house to sneak into (or out of) after hours. Another thing: this house is actually in Malibu, which is about a two hour drive from the Cohen's residence in Newport see more

In fact, as the glory days of bad tribals and off-the-wall flash art fade, the artists dominating the game often shine even brighter than their celebrity-client rosters. Here are 13 you'll want to have on your radar. see more

A Lamp That Makes Your Living Room Into a Year-Round Beach

The Sanremo lamp from the Italian Archizoom Associati was designed by Dario Bartolini and stands in stark contrast to the white-walled, sheepskin-strewn, sparsely furnished Scandinavian aesthetic that dominates these days. The Sanremo is a bit of winking kitsch among the poker-faced austerity. Bartolini originally designed this lamp, in 1968, as an engagement present for his future wife and it has become a much-studied object since. "Since we were supposed to be practicing architects, many people couldn't grasp what we were up to. In reality many of our objects were created for reasons other than that of architecture: an engagement see more

This Ain't Your Grandma's Rocking Chair

Two Spanish industrial designers—Irene Chercoles Mercader and Andrea Mauri Carbonell—have taken on the humble rocking chair in a recent collaboration fittingly named the NAP.

Kiss Coffee Lid Makes for an Awkwardly Sexy Drinking Experience

Many people think they love their coffee. It gets them up in the morning, it keeps them up in the afternoon, and it smells more comforting than their favorite fragrance.
