    i'll start out with some of my favorite chair porn...

    marco zanuso's lady chair


    george nelson's coconut chair



    eames tandem sling chair



    i share the love for the eames ecw, too, sput.


    love the robin's egg blue eames rocker...this chair is totally classic, imo! i want to get one of these to rock my kids in when we have a family.



    the eames office chair in white...



    arne jacobsen's egg chair!




    glostrup teak arm chair...i don't care for the color of this cushion though. i'd like one with blue upholstery. i have a big thing for danish teak furniture.
    white, black, puerto rican/everybody just a freakin'/good times were rollin'.

    I like the second coffee table too, sput.. the first one is architecturally appealing but it's too reminiscent of the faceted vase.. too theme-y you know?

    Now just how the HELL did you know THAT! More than one - I have one hanging from a planter in front of my living room mirror, and another one in the damn kitchen. Who you been talkin' too???? Or maybe I mentioned it ages ago in the artificial plants thread and just forgot about it?

    My shitty place is full of leftover eighties excess shit mixed with cheapo crap and a few antiques thrown in for a general pukeworthy effect. But I am not putting my shithole on display as anything special either.

    *Those last pics from the original post..the blue and red 60's scoop chairs..I remember watching the original Star Trek sitting in one just like those, but it was a teal/turquoise color. One of my first memories.

    Too weird?



    I think this clock is neat looking. But probably confusing if you actually need to know what time it is.


    I think it's 7:45 there...
