"Happy 50th" celebrates the Eames lounge chair, it's history and current traveling exhibition. I guess we scooped the Trib on this one - we blogged the chair's big birthday on AT:Chicago's launch day - here's our post. We enjoyed the part of the H&G article which discusses facts and figures: number sold the first year, intital price tag, etcetera. Also from H&G this week:

Grimy Grout: Hooray for baking soda - the natural .83 product beats the competition.
Dishing: Summertime, and the cooking is easy : A simple Mediterranean themed meal. Recipes for Citrus marinated lamb kabobs and a fennel and yogurt slaw (this salad sounds really tasty).
Designophiles : Bathroom: A bathroom redo by local furniture designer Luke Lai Wong of Studio Wai. The challenge: how to add style and texture to his new construction all-white bathroom without replacing any fixtures or doing any renovationing.
