Who said Paris was the centre of sophistication? French people love their phallic-shaped bread just as much as anyone! Legay Choc Boulangerie is run by two brothers (one straight, one gay) who just happen to have the surname ‘Legay’… and just so happen to sell penis-shaped baguettes.
These baguettes are soft, chewy and delicious, and go by the name ‘Baguette Magique‘. They’re only sold on Saturdays so if you’re in Paris and looking for a quirky addition to that romantic picnic by the Seine, may I suggest going to this bakery on the weekend and buying a couple to impress your date. Because they will be impressed, there’s no doubt about it.
If baguettes aren’t your thing, try one of the bakery’s penis-shaped tarts or cake. So naughty!

This rare Dwiggins book is well done, but I wouldn’t send it back to the kitchen. Typography nerds and Dwig’s fans will savor this Princeton Architectural Press masterpiece when it is released in late September. Stencilled Ornament & Illustration: A Demonstration of William Addison Dwiggins’ Method of Book Decoration and Other Uses of the Stencil, Together with a Note By the Artist (Hingham, MA Püterschein-Hingham, 1979) by Dorothy Abbe was originally printed in a limited edition of 120 copies. A year later it was reprinted in a small quantity by the Boston Public Library.
Although Dwig died in 1956 and was not the author of this volume, it is one of the design landmarks that has triggered a new reprint “movement,” including Chronicle’s editon of Paul Rand’s Thoughts On Design (2014), Massimo Vignelli’s New York City Transit Authority Graphic Standards Manual (2015) created by Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth, and Ladislav Sutnar: Visual Design in Action (2015) edited by Reto Caduff and myself and published by Lars Muller.
Gradually the great books of design are finding their ways back through reprints and facsimiles.

A striking contemporary loft has been elegantly updated for a family with three young children by Ben Herzog Architect, located in Tribeca, New York. Comprised of 2,200 square feet of living space, this three bedroom apartment needed to be re-configured and given a fresh makeover. The clients requested that the home have a child proof design by day, yet bestow an elegant aesthetic during the evening hours. Interior designer Keven Dumais was called into action to infuse warmth, color and texture to the home. The design duo worked together to reconfigure spaces to create a more livable footprint. The kitchen was re-designed, closet re-shaped, a full bath was turned into a powder room to allow a more spacious laundry room and the HVAC was redirected into the ceiling. Notable finishes were added to the interiors, such as wide plank oak flooring and custom built-in cabinetry. The kitchen was a major overhaul, receiving a brand new built-in bar, a fully landscaped terrace that travels the length of the loft, a center island with a breakfast bar and tons of storage. A notable design feature is the breakfast nook, showcasing a built-in banquette with floor-to-ceiling bleached walnut paneling, which helps to conceal a flat screen TV. The apartment has a predominantly neutral color palette, which has worked well to create modern interiors with the warmth a traditional design aesthetic. Have a look through the home tour and let us know your thoughts, we always enjoy reading your feedback!
We have showcased numerous lofts in the incredibly design savvy Tribeca, New York neighborhood. In case you missed this amazing eye candy, have a look: Beyond spectacular loft mansion in TriBeCa and TriBeCa loft showcases an eclectic mix of styles.
This living room area plays double duty as a play area and a more formal furniture arrangement for when the homeowners want to entertain guests. This space can also cater to overnight guests thanks to a built-in Murphy bed, which is concealed by a wall unit that displays a chalkboard on the lower half and a cork board on the upper half.
The master bedroom was designed to be a soothing oasis, dressed in shades of mauve, blue and gray.
