FROM THIS EPISODE

In this campaign season, politics meets design. Frances Anderton explores the message behind the architecture of America's new embassies, and the fashion industry's efforts to legislate against piracy. Closer to home, as Larchmont Village mourns the passing of its favorite hardware store, we hear about LA hardware stores and why women love them.
