It took us a moment to interpret the title when we first saw Donald Robertson's new book, Sofa King Great. "Say it fast out loud," the ever-witty Robertson told us at a cocktail party.

Crew, Smashbox; creative director Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan; launched VivaGlam! with MAC Cosmetics; Bergdorf Goodman window- display takeover; Cadillac pop-art installation at Miami Art Basel; more than 220,000 followers, @drawbertson on Instagram. Book: Sofa King Great (Print/The Book Agency) is the follow-up to his 2021 book, Alcohol A Love Story, which flew off the shelves when it was released. The sumptuous new tome, at 400 pages, is a treasure to own. $300; illustrated and signed copies at C2 Art as part of Texas Design Week Houston. So, Donald, tell us … Favorite room designed by anyone, at any time. Bemelmans bar, The Carlyle hotel. Historic, vintage design, or art books in your library that you treasure. I treasure my first Assouline book. That was a miracle. And I am thrilled with my follow-up matching book. Is it terrible to say my own? Donald Robertson @drawbertson, Dallas Favorite design, art Instagram feeds. I must confess, I have a soft spot for dad artists with young babies/kids. I know how stressed they must be about cash. @ robjoyner, @seboart, @theflowerguy … I buy their stuff so they can pay for kid stuff. What's next. Hollywood bought the rights to my first kid's book series: Mitford at the Fashion Zoo, Mitford at the Hollywood Zoo. They go slower than sleepy snails, but it sounds promising.
