Portlanders! Please join us on Sunday, July 20 from 12-3pm for a special lunch and book signing event with Peter Miller of Seattle’s Peter Miller Architecture & Design Books.
Enjoy delicious food and wine, pick up a copy of the cookbook, and meet author Peter Miller, who will be in attendance.
Lunch at the Shop: The Art and Practice of the Midday Meal is a call to lunch. On the most basic level, the book is a primer for making lunch for a few people at work, including more than 45 tried-and-tested, deliciously simple recipes. But the essence of the book is about adopting a lifestyle that allows food to be savored every day, in a way that is easy, fresh, healthy, and a pleasure.
Peter Miller Architecture & Design Books was founded in Seattle over 25 years ago. It offers a wide selection of design-related books, products and furniture out of its space in Belltown.

Too often, labels get trapped in their own success. Popular pieces become “signatures” and have to be reproduced every season, stifling creativity. Comme des Garçons, however, always remains dynamic, rejecting what already exists in favor of new themes, new ideas.
These vintage Comme des Garçons adverts capture the spirit behind the movement instead of a particular point in time. Irreverent? Irrelevant.

British designer Max Lamb has brought his refined primitivism to all his works, especially his most recent venture: the refurbishing of his new home. The latest issue of Fantastic Man catches up with the designer in the middle of the process, just when what used to be a forgotten industrial building on the outskirts of London is beginning to hint at its new form. If the ideal home should reflect the essence of its inhabitants and create a space of complete comfort, Max Lamb’s home nears perfection. Its rough, unconventional materials perfectly convey his adventurous spirit.
