Nambé Lounge chip and dip by Neil Cohen will serve you well when entertaining

Fun is at the forefront of Neil Cohen's designs, and perhaps never more so than in his spirited Lounge Chip and Dip for Nambé. Relaxed yet commanding and undeniably appealing, this precocious tray will serve you well no matter who you're entertaining. The chip end is generous and beveled; the other, a more structured hollow holding up to 2 ounces of dip. You'll find it equally at home with guacamole and tortilla chips as with caviar and crackers. Heated slightly, the Lounge is a showcase setting for crab cakes and warm remoulade; chill it and present a platter of cold shrimp and cocktail sauce. Playful and praised, this versatile piece earned a design recognition at the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Exhibition in 2005.  The Lounge can be preheated to 500 degrees or chilled in the freezer.

Eco-minded cabin in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State

Huddled in the shadows of the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, a compact cabin opens up its walls to the surrounding forest.  Tom Kundig designed the steel-clad cabin to fade into the surrounding forest. Although it appears to sit on the ground, the cabin is actually perched atop a 16-foot foundation that raises the living quarters so they are level with an outcropping in back; a terrace atop the mound more than doubles the available living space (the homeowner, a contractor, devised his own table and benches). The chimney's height was dictated by thermodynamics rather than aesthetics: The fireplace is so large that the stack had to be tall to guarantee a draw.
