Red, white and blue palette seems fitting for primary day here in NY. It has been a great first three months of owning this 1675. I have found it to be exceptionally versatile. [[SPOILER]] Edit: sorry guys, dont know how to resize the image so I have put spoiler tags around it.
This would be far more helpful if you suggested lighting that you actually liked vs panning my ideas.
I am going to purchase a suspension light for above my dining room table. The table is wood and fairly nondescript. At some point I will get rid of it but it wont be until I move apartments and can get something bigger. Current table is 60 x 36. Here are some ideas that I am toying with, hopefully it gives you a sense for my aesthetic. Curious to get input on these or other suggestions. Would prefer to keep the budget to < $2,000.

I guess i stretched the theme a bit as I was the only one who showed up in formal wear but I had no problem with that. I had this tuxedo made by Chan about 8 years ago.

About 9 months ago, I came upon an intriguing example of a 1675 on Instagram via analog/shift. After a number of forum members vouched for a/s, i visited James (the founder/CEO) at his office in NY. For anyone that is interested in vintage watches, I would definitely recommend spending time with...
Finally pulled the trigger on a watch I had been eying for years. Will post pictures over the weekend. It is pre-1970.
I am hosting a gathering at my apartment where I will be pairing classical music and wine. I am looking for a red burg (will be paired with the Beethoven triple concerto) and a white burg (for the Academic Festival). Looking to spend about $50 per bottle and wine needs to be ready to drink. Any ideas?
