"We can move out west if you can find a modern house that the furniture can go into," recollects homeowner Mark Neely after spending years collecting furniture for his apartments in Chicago and New York and taking the recent plunge settling into sunny San Rafael, California. Neely and partner Paul Kefalides' living room in their Joseph Eichler home in the Lucas Valley neighborhood from our June 'Furniture' issue is chock-full of the pair's impressive vintage finds, such as a Hans Wegner wooden Sawback chair, fur throw (albeit in need of dire repair), George Nelson's famous Ball Clock, Raymond Loewy's glossy DF-2000 cabinet, twin white floor lamps by Grta Von Nessen, and a suitably-packed cluster of Brian Willshire wooden sculptures, one of Neely’s many collections.

Today, we kicked off this year’s annual Dwell on Design at the LA Convention Center, which will continue through Sunday, June 26th. Though we’ve been hosting this extensive event for years, this time around is particularly special.
