I was excited to see that Apartment Therapy recently featured a piece by my favorite contemporary artist, the British sculptor Rachel Whiteread.
Whiteread is best known for casting the interior of objects and rooms in concrete and resin, which is why I was surprised to see this particular piece of hers on Apartment Therapy: it's a whimsical chess set, comprising of miniatures of household objects and furnishings squaring off atop a patchwork chess board.
