Think you're screwed.You can attempt fashion-shaming her. Modern is currently on trend. See Restoration Hardware's strategic re-focusing.

Think it depends on what you'd be using them for. The complexity of the Nakashima chair makes it work much better as a standalone chair than as multiples around a table. The Chair is better as a dining chair, but there are other Wegner designs I prefer for that purpose.Does it have to be MCM or will contemporary modern work?
Let it never be said that I don't contribute to this forum.
Exactly.The interesting thing about Jasper Morrison's crate is not its pricing, but what it reveals about prejudices and snobbery. Considering the work and materials required, the pricing is not ridiculous at all. An Artek 60 stool is $300 at retail, but constructed of plywood without any glued joints and requires self-assembly. Corbusier's simple box with dovetail joints is $700.To my mind, Corbusier and Jasper Morrison ought to be applauded for restraining themselves...
Why would anyone go through so much trouble to make the middle half of a bench useless?
My perspective is that one should be willing to do new things, but I don't see newness as a virtue unto itself.
