Inspired by a similar campaign run by Fritz Hansen in 2009, Beth Dickstein of BDE reached out to 10 charter members with her vision for Be Original. All of them signed on. The manifest includes top executives from Alessi, Artek, Bernhardt Design, Cassina/Poltrona Frau/Cappellini, Emeco, Flos, Fritz Hansen, Herman Miller, Ligne Roset and Vitra. Through a series of educational programs, lectures and workshops, Be Original hopes to raise awareness and engage in dialogue about the inherent value of innovative and original design, and how to identify it. In particular, the group hopes to influence the younger generation of emerging designers and students.
Connecticut Cottages & Gardens - July 2014
We never planned to be New Englanders. We were New Yorkers through and through. I couldn’t wait to move to the City after growing up in a small town in western New York State. And Craig Bassam, my partner, made his way to New York from his native Australia. We had the quintessential New York life—including an apartment with a wraparound terrace in West Chelsea.

A tent was set up in the vineyard, and we had a comparative tasting of single-parcel, single-vineyard wines. We tasted Los Castaños from 60-year-old vines, which displayed cherry, plum, rosemary and violet notes. The second wine came from the vineyard to the north, Las Compuertas, which has 100-year-old vines and had concentrated flavors of black fruit, nutmeg and tobacco. These single vineyards are the new face of Argentina’s high quality Malbecs.
