Weekly stories on the subject of real estate, design and the built environment


Sarah Archer



I’m a Philadelphia-based freelance design writer with editorial and copywriting experience.

I currently write for several outlets, including Architectural Digest, Hyperallergic, The Atlantic, and The New Yorker online.

I also work with organizations and brands that need an engaging copy, from crisp landing page text to full creative proposals, blog posts with deft SEO integration, and social media content.

I’m an expert in design and material culture, and the author of the 2016 book “Midcentury Christmas” (Countryman Press) as well as the “The Midcentury Kitchen,” which was published in 2019.

I’ve worked with Christie’s International Real Estate, Doyle New York, TEFAF, The Hudson Company, Lang Architecture, 1stDibs, and Knightsbridge Park, among others.

At 1stDibs I created a series of highly readable creator biographies and designer stories. For Christie’s, I devised a series of articles that featured international properties for sale paired with relevant outstanding objects from the auction house side of the business.
