    I guess it's sort of cliche at this point, but I love the Starck ghost chair:

    So glad everyone likes this thread so far.. I got an apartment for next year so I'm going to be asking for input, too.. I'm kind of going for a bohemian modern approach... if such a thing exists.

    Love this vase..

    I'll never get tired of looking at Eames stools. They are perfect:

    agree.
    the eames made so many modern classics.
    i know they've gotten trendier in recent years but i think they are true 20th century classics.

    thoughts on this coffee table?



    it looks kinda flimsy in the picture, it's actually quite sturdy in person.

    so as you can guess i'm looking for a coffee table. my other choices are these:





    oh yeah, the sofa is a kind of sand colour, and it's quite modern but very simple lines. not a sectional, just a normal sofa.

    bbbbbbut, how did i miss this thread for an entire day?! *pouts*


    i like this coffee table best, sput!...





    love the shower curtain, too. marimekko makes the best textile patterns ever.

    and, since i'm thinking of textiles, there are great textiles on this site: fabrics
    white, black, puerto rican/everybody just a freakin'/good times were rollin'.
