FEATURES
@Home Design:
This Bold House

BY WENDY GOODMAN

Web design hits home, whether it's Josh Harris's wired-to-the-max SoHo loft or Tiffany Dubin's uptown apartment getting a downtown look to match her Silicon Valley paradigm shift. In these spaces, the walls really can talk (and put on a light show), and nobody has to go to the store for paper towels ever again.

Homework

Stylish pieces that will bring flash to the most familiar room, from a lacquered table sleek enough for hostess Serena Bass to a kitchen-on-wheels fit for chef Matthew Kenney. And, of course, floor pillows worth fighting over for the Sopranos kids.

Maxwell's House
BY EDITH NEWHALL

The Whitney Biennial hasn't even opened, and already it's had a mini-scandal with Hans Haacke's anti-Giuliani installation. But don't judge Whitney director Maxwell Anderson by one artwork. His team has selected a roster that's less political and less trendy than usual. And it remains to be seen what the catty New York art world makes of that.
