Rob Forbes Is Blogging Within Reach

studioforbes.png

Every once in awhile we think about Rob Forbes, the man who left behind Design Within Reach for…well, we really don’t know what but he sends these nice essays about his travels. The latest of which came today and is all about patterns found in the wild. But besides these updates that come every week or so, we wonder: What is Forbes doing out there?

Well, the short answer, according to this LA Times piece is starting a new company with “unique products that reflect local culture…food, music, maybe even lamps.” That does not provide any new answers for our detail-starved brains, but writer Janet Eastman is much more worried about the fate of Forbes’ Design Notes newsletter (which goes to an astounding 400,000 people) so she gets really excited about his new Studio Forbes blog.

Great, it’s a very nice blog. But can someone tell us when are we going to be able to buy expensive Forbes-curated items we didn’t know we needed again? Please, help us.
