How amazingly cool is this ode to Damien Hirst shown in the home section of today's New York Times? I love, love, love it. The caption for the photo reads, "Spools of thread are on display as they would be in a tailor shop, another nod to Mr. Hirst's work.

The article chronicles Mr. Coupland's renovation of a mid-century home in Vancouver. The end results of his labors are pretty stunning. I feel like Coupland and I would get along. Below is a collection of building block pieces and below is a grouping of objects of which Coupland said, "I collect shapes," Mr. Coupland said. I immediately understood what he meant about shapes and fell in love with him when I saw the building blocks. Click here to read the full article.
