The New York Times Home & Garden section was a little heavier than usual on kitchen things today, so we thought we'd give you a look. The first thing we noticed is that while composting was on the front burner last week, this week it's all about the in-sink disposal. Read on for our thoughts, as well as photos of very shiny cookware from John Pawson, a seriously white kitchen, and one designer's ideas of what it means to get ready for spring.
• 1. Cookware for a Nonmaterial World - The title of this Q&A is rather tongue-in-cheek, as the Times struggles in yet another issue of their Home & Garden section to acknowledge the crazy state of the economy while still featuring lovely (and pricey) homewares. Here they interview British minimalist John Pawson about his new line of cookware for Demeyere, which he designed to be beautiful for tabletop serving as well as cooking.
• 2. The cookware is available through 125 West for about $1095 for the whole set.
• 3. A Modernist Temple - One Indian couple's seriously modern, seriously white custom kitchen in their NYC condo. We really like the built-in breakfast bar.
• 4. Bigger Muscle for the Disposal - Just in case the composting last week scared off some readers, the Times this week turns back to the disposal: bigger, beefier, even more convenient models are on their way.
• 5. Shopping With Sam Lemheney - The designer of the Philadelphia Flower Show shops for spring-like things. While these towels from Anthropologie are certainly very pretty, we think you should start to prepare for spring by airing your house and kitchen out first!
