Architecture critic Alexandra Lange takes issue with the $65K worth of donated West Elm pieces now furnishing the Gracie Mansion, NYC's official mayoral estate, writing that "there's the whiff of something unseemly about taking such a large donation from a single company. It makes the de Blasios seem a little too close to the style bloggers who, when they reach a certain audience size, get their living rooms donated by Design Within Reach. Should Gracie Mansion be the equivalent of a sponsored post?" [NYT; previously]
