As tempting as it might be, you can't actually buy anything at the Herman Miller showroom, which has just opened in a former warehouse in Los Angeles, near Culver City. The facility exists to offer a comprehensive look at the company's storied furniture as well as a peek at future designs, says Lori Gee, Herman Miller's director of workplace solutions.

Derrick Yarborough can't forget the one that got away — the one he left alone on a Friday night, to be swept up by someone else by the time Yarborough realized he'd made a mistake. Now, Yarborough gazes forlornly at potential replacements, each stylish and lovely but none matching the one he lost earlier this month, the one he took everywhere and kept close to his heart. After all, they'd been together for years: Yarborough and his Waterman pen. "It's tough. I'd had it a long time," he said as he loitered in front of a display case last week at the Fountain Pen Hospital, a Manhattan institution that is accustomed to misty-eyed visitors like Yarborough.
