Midsummer Night Dreams

On our July reading list, you'll find European history, American lit, corporate chutzpah on steroids, Giant doings, and, yes, serendipity. We purposely blended this heady fair-skies mélange with exotic design fragrances to waft you on your way wherever you intend to go this summer.
Come journey with us from a 17th-century Catalonian farmhouse's new brutalist interior to a California desert motel where the beat goes on—as in William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg. There's a 1959 Thunderbird parked outside, but perhaps you'd prefer the speedboat that ferries guests to the Taj Lake Palace, which recently recovered its royal Rajasthani mien.
Surveying your diverse surroundings, can you see the old barriers between design and literature, design and legend, design and geography, design and life? Neither can we.
