Dwell interviews furniture and design curator Willard Ford, formerly of FordBrady and currently of Ford&Ching. The magazine asks if Los Angeles is a good place to sell contemporary design, Ford says, "It’s probably one of the worst, actually. Los Angeles peaked with mid-century-modern design and that continues to take up most of the market. We’re trying to open the market to a wider perspective that includes new ideas about furniture and design." Ford also talks about his company's location at the Kim Sing Theatre at 718 North Figueroa, which he bought "dirt cheap," and about Ford&Ching's move into restaurant and hotel design.
