Meet our overall winner, Richmond design house Fern & Roby, makers of audio components, hard wares and furniture, as well as Brown Dog Ice Cream in Cape Charles, Ivy’s Monolith Studios, Madison County’s Early Mountain Vineyards and many more. We take a look at a new exhibit at the Blue Ridge Institute & Museum honoring Virginia’s bustling community cannery industry of the early 20th century, and visit an elegant home in Alexandria that strikes the perfect balance between design and function. Also in the issue, an interview with glamorous jewelry maker Elizabeth Locke, progress on the landmark restoration underway at the University of Virginia’s iconic Rotunda, novel ideas for Thanksgiving leftovers, a visit to the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation in Culpeper and more, including special bound-in supplement Hospitals & Healthcare 2015. In it we spotlight new treatments for Crohn’s disease and for lowering cholesterol, capital improvements at HCA Virginia’s Chippenham Hospital and INOVA Children's’ Hospital, the rising popularity of house call providers, midwives and more. Plus, we meet the heavy hitters of health care philanthropy and learn more about the good work of hospital foundations. Click here to purchase the November / December 2015 issue today!
