PLEASE, sit down, he says politely. Make yourself comfortable. And so you do. You follow Reza Feiz's welcoming palm as it sweeps toward an empty chair, a chair that looks and feels unlike any you've seen before. It's a minimalist cube, stark and sensual, with a cutout back that is monolithic in proportion, yet elegant in form. It hovers above the floor, the secret to apparent weightlessness held only by a discreet walnut base. Surprisingly, it's comfortable.

At the opening of "Blossom," his exhibition running through Sept. 12 at the L.A. showroom Twentieth, Reza Feiz planted two rows of Iris photo prints in 6-foot-8 walnut frames ($1,275 each) that he says "are a spin on the usual hanging photo and reminded me of tree trunks." The 36-year-old head of Phase Design, seated here in his cork-covered BBC chair ($2,300), became a furniture maker when he couldn't afford the contemporary pieces he admired. With "Blossom" Feiz has truly bloomed.

Property and cutlery may not seem like natural roommates, but in Palm Springs, two L.A.-based businesses are giving it a go. Deasy/Penner & Partners, a real estate firm specializing in midcentury architecture, and modern design retailer Fitzsu Society recently opened shop in a 2,000-square-foot space designed by Albert Frey. The Fitzsu portion of the glass-fronted cube is museum-store minimalist, focusing on sleek contemporary home accessories by Alessi, Vitra and Rosenthal.

Modern furniture -- revered or reviled for its skeletal lines and anemic colors -- has been putting on a few pounds.
