Any suggestions for brilliant laundry hampsers? I want something with wood or bamboo.

This is my second. Yes. I just hate lugging around 10# of big laptop that the company provides. I'd rather spend my money and save my shoulder and luggage space. I cannot complain at all about it. For what one needs to do for business, email, word processing and spreadsheets, it's perfect.

I just bought an Arne Jacobsen floor lamp and waiting 12 weeks to receive it. Apparently Denmark only works at the pace of Denmark.

My fiancé surprised me with an antique Danish tea trolley in Teak, which we promptly displayed Bar ware on...


Those aluminum group chars are awesome, I much prefer the 4 leg base (as you have it) to the 5 star that was done up until recently. They now have returned to the 4 leg on anything without wheels.

If it's a new one, it's normal.

Find Finn, you seem to know little about danish stuff. Is there any good whiskey decanter in crystal from a good brand/quality but for a good price you could suggest?

Speaking of lamps...how often do you guys see vintage PH4/3 pendant lamps in colors other than white. I much prefer it to the larger version of the lamp but I don't really like white. My parents had one in a gorgeous blue and I would love to have something similar...unfortunately the big PH5 versions are much more common in the states and are the only things I ever see at a reasonable used price in non-white colors.

If you don't want to spend apple $$$, the thinkpad x230 is a lovely small computer for a much lower base price. Helps if you prefer the clit-mouse to the touchpad since I think the touchpad is not as nice as Apple...but clit-mouse>touchpad once you are used to it.

If it has to be crystal, my best guess would be swedish Orrefors.

Fairly, although most are white with blue/orange etc. accents.

A PH4 usually goes for around 2-400$

I think george Jensen, Holmegaard etc. stopped making crystal glassware a couple years back, so one of the Riedel firms (Spigelau, Nachtmann, Riedel) or Waterford.
