Milan picks. I didn't go to the Milan furniture fair. In fact, I have never even been to Italy -- crazy, I know -- it's on the list...Meanwhile, I was poking around looking for news on the recent design event and found these lovelies.

From Tom Dixon's brilliant mind -- cast-iron and marble screw tables, $1,260 and $1,700

The chicest camping furniture -- leather and beech -- you've ever seen -- Jesper Thomsen for Normann Copenhagen, $1,700-$3,500. Blond wood is really having a moment now. I'm seeing it everywhere -- Blond post to come soon...
