The Future Perfect Launches Casa Perfect, a Retail Space Located in a Modernist Home.

Have you ever heard of Future Perfect? If so, then you know that it’s a prominent art and design gallery. If not, then let us tell you about it. David Alhadeff founded Future Perfect — which has locations in Manhattan and San Francisco — in 2003, and the gallery features works by both established and emerging designers. Alhadeff realized that Los Angeles was the perfect market for his business, so he recently opened Casa Perfect.

Rather than opening a space in a storefront on Melrose or in DTLA, Alhadeff elected to do something a little different. He found a mid-century home in the West Hollywood Hills, and decided to call it Casa Perfect. Korean-American architect David Hyun created plans for the 3,000-square-foot home in 1957. His design features an open floor plan, with four bedrooms, a lot of outdoor space, and amazing views of Los Angeles.

“I have long had a love affair with L.A., and have been waiting for the right opportunity to open in this exciting city,” said Alhadeff. “When I found the house in the hills, I knew that we could create something beyond retail, and give our clients an experience unique to The Future Perfect, but distinctly L.A.”

For its debut, Casa Perfect is showing a collaboration between Commune and jewelry designer Lisa Eisner, who created a collection of solid brass hardware that adorns several pieces in the house. A cushion collection by Commune in collaboration with textile designer Adam Pogue, as well as Commune’s latest collection of bedding for Hamburg House is also on display. Christian Woo designed a new collection of outdoor furniture that sits in the patio, and ceramicist Eric Roinestad has a variety of new stoneware, vessels and lighting on display.

There’s also work from Casa Perfect’s roster by the likes of  Lindsey Adelman, De La Espada, Michael Anastasiades, Bec Brittain, Calico Wallpaper, Piet Hein Eek, Dimore Studio, Pinch, Roll & Hill, Kasthall Carpets, Lex Pott, Christopher Stuart and more.

Ranking the 10 best Dustin Hoffman movies of all time
Dustin Hoffman's best movies are varied and incredible!
Dustin Hoffman

If you are a movie buff, or you had a family member who grew up in the 1970s, it's surely impossible for you to not have heard of the legendary Dustin Hoffman. Ranking right up alongside the iconic Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman's style was much more everyman and antihero than these other big names. Hoffman was able to provide a strange sense of comfort when he starred in a film, even if his characters made questionable choices along the way. Even though he's not as active in his 80s, Hoffman is still acting and will appear in the fourth Kung Fu Panda movie alongside Jack Black. We're here to rank the best Dustin Hoffman movies so you can catch up on all of his greatest hits!

5 types of cigars you need to know about

If you've never really enjoyed a cigar, maybe it's not you; it's the smokes themselves -- perhaps you just haven't found the right cigar for your pleasure. It's a given that the aroma and flavor of a cigar are primarily derived from the tobacco used to make it, both the filling and the wrapper. But cigar type, meaning shape and size, also significantly impacts how a stogie tastes and smells, not to mention how its profile changes during the smoking process.

Those huge cigars passed out at bachelor parties may start smooth but can end up heavy and harsh as they burn down. Likewise, a slender cigarillo may burn hot and intense from the start: Size and shape don't play a direct role in how the cigar will taste or how mellow or potent it will be, but they do dictate the smoke time and, depending on the tobacco used, how the cigar will change while burning down.
