Dear Carrie-Ann, We love Palo Alto! What a great town. Thank you for your suggestion. We've shared it with our Studio Design and Product Development teams. In the meantime, keep an eye out for interesting gift items (many designed by women) arriving at our larger Studios (San Francisco is one of them) for the holiday season. -DWR

At DWR, we're frustrated by the fact that we don't have an equal number of products by women and men. Having only nine women in our September catalog is far too few, and we'd love to have more products by women in our assortment. That's why we're super excited about the recent launch of the Harvey Mirror (p.19 in the catalog) by Egg Collective, a rising female design trio out of Brooklyn. Look for more of their products in our catalog and studios in the near future! We greatly appreciate your comment and hope that you will join us in encouraging young women to pursue careers in architecture and design. -DWR

The Hagerty House (1938) is indeed very special. The authors mention it in Cape Cod Modern, but Cohasset isn't part of Cape Cod so it isn't a big part of the book. Lucky you for spending your childhood in (or nearby?) that house! -GH

Good idea, Rona. Pavilion trivia: The Wiz, They Might Be Giants video, King of Queens opening scene, The Jetsons, Iron Man 2, and CSI NY were also filmed at this site. Making the Pavilion quite the movie star. -Gwendolyn@DWR
