#AsSeenIn: This April's HB

We never cease to be amazed by the inventive ways designers configure and customize products, and it's always exciting to see pieces we know so well--straight from our partner catalogs--featured in high-profile shelter mag spreads in ways we could never have imagined.

The current print issue of House Beautiful  has so many gorgeous stories--and we are absolutely loving Sophie Donelson's discerning eye and editorial direction these days--but Jane Green's Kitchen of The Month definitely caught our eye (pp 52-56); in particular, the "refrigeration wall" on page 54.

The copy reads:  The "refrigeration wall" has three Liebherr units, including one freezer.  "With six kids, you need a lot of fridge space," [Jane] says.

We are huge Liebherr fans and always knew they had multiple modular built-in options, but somehow never thought about lining up 3 externally identical 24" units along a wall.  Now that we see it in a residential setting, it makes so much sense, both functionally and aesthetically.

Another giddy discovery was the Oly Diego bed in textile artist Sharon Lee's home (pp 72-79).  When we think of Oly's clean, artisanal aesthetic, we don't picture intricate pineapple-print bed curtains or Balinese quilts, but the combination is undeniably stunning, and so much more than the sum of its parts.
