@Joe from Philly - the lamp is the Tolomeo from Artemide, a modern classic!
@nerak1818 - we asked Megan where the table came from. The table is a slab of wood from a guanacaste tree that they bought in Honduras. Then her husband Chris, who trained as an architect, had custom stainless legs made at Room and Board. Pretty cool, right??

Some dishwashers (like mine) specify that you should *not* rinse food particles off beforehand, to protect your dishware. Ours also specifies powder instead of gel detergent. I was very surprised by both directives, but now it's working great! I'd recommend looking up your model's manual online to make sure you're using the right methods.

We are sorry if any readers felt that the title or description of the survey were at all misleading. We have been partnering with Furniture Today - an editorial publication - for many years, and this is one of many surveys we've run with them. We do not sell this information, and we will share it with you as soon as we've gathered it all. Last time, we created this nifty infographic using your responses. Our goal is always to serve you the best and most relevant content for you, and surveys are one way we try to accomplish that.

Yes, the Apartment Therapy Team got to vote in these early rounds - we were amazed at how controversial the choices were! In a couple weeks, though, readers will have the final say in deciding the 'top design icon.' We hope it's fun to watch the videos and get a little more familiar with some of our favorite designs of all time!

Hi @angelinethebaker!

Here's what Wilsonart told us:

All Wilsonart patterns meet or exceed the industry standard for wear resistance. The Mosaic pattern with the shiny “Gloss” finish is manufactured with the AEON™ enhanced scratch resistance, which gives it 3-times the wear resistance and 4-times the scuff resistance compared to standard laminate. AEON also makes Wilsonart Laminate look better longer, making it suitable for your kitchen or utility needs. Like with most countertop products, scratches on dark, glossy colors are more visually noticeable than on light colors or lower sheen finishes.

We hope that answers your question!

Why Laminate? Wilsonart Wednesday

Hi @The Triumphant Fox,
Our friends at Wilsonart wanted to offer this response:

There are many reputable online comparison buying guides for kitchen countertops. They tend to compare all surfacing products. Typically, you’ll see materials referenced vs. brands. Recently, Consumer Reports cited laminates as having multiple advantages: “the counters are easy to maintain and in Consumer Reports' tests of 14 materials, laminate resisted stains, heat, and impact almost as well as materials that cost much more. And they come in a wide variety of colors and designs.” The price is right for laminate – approximately 1/3 less than granite or other natural stones. The magazine also cited laminate as “practical – unlike pricier materials, laminate can be replaced at a fraction of the cost.” Examples of laminate designs are available on The designer, contractor or fabricator you work with can also order samples for you to see and feel. Laminate countertops offer a great supporting role to other materials in the kitchen such as cabinets, appliances, and backsplashes. Combined together, all materials offer maximum resale value.

Wilsonart has run additional tests on its own laminate to combat concerns about scratching. You can see those results here.
