Lee Mindel, founder of the architecture and design firm, Shelton Mindel, has been our friend and collaborator for the past 12 or so years. Lee and his late partner, Peter Shelton, have ben our partners in the design of .25, Opus and most recently, the Formwork collections of fittings. Lee is an avid modernist and minimalist whose knowledge of mid-century design is encyclopedic. He loves texture, color, and great art. He also knows how to create a beautiful bath in a very small space by combining modern and transitional elements, layering materials and adding his special brand of functionality.

- Preparing for the Holidays
Recycle everything; books, magazines, newspapers, clothes, and kids toys
Purchase baskets for mail, newspapers, hats, gloves, toys and magazines to keep them organized and off of the floor, counters and tables
Tackle the kitchen cabinets and donate unused items to the local shelter. While you're at it, it might be time to think differently about how your kitchen functions. Move things around to save steps

Plan ahead for meals, gifts, gift wrapping, and table settings
A great time to edit, reorganize and simplify.
