I work in Interior design, so I should know. wink.gif
I didn't say it was a fad. I said the world will find other fads to replace it.

I work today from 5pm to 8, if you'd like to give me a call there at Ace, let me know. And all Aces are individually owned so I don't know why you meeting up with Ray is relevant...

So, you bringing up your meeting with Ray, what was the reason for that? That's what I'm trying to ask.

Fads wont/can't replace a (mega) trend, there's a reason why they are called classics.

I guess we'll see in 10 years. Deal is on, btw. wink.gif That is, if we're both still alive and kickin.
I know a lot of people who are sick of mid century modern already. Just go and read some of the posts on Apartment Therapy. We (MCM lovers) are not the majority. And it was out of style after the 70's. It just came back in style in the last decade. A lot of my friends think I'm weird because my apartment is full of vintage pieces. So yes, there may be a few select awesome people that love it, but there are a ton more who hate it.

Why, yes... Yes, it is. What would you suggest my gauge be?

Haha! Well, I happen to get inspiration from Apartment Therapy. What about it reminds you of that?

It's not a very good cross section of the design industry. Nearly all of their styles look the same and all of the articles appear to be written by a handful of people who all have similar taste.

I get what you're saying. There is a lot of ugly stuff on AT, but there are some cool before and afters and I like the small cool places. Since I'm living in an apartment, I have to be resourceful with how everything fits and it doesn't feel claustrophobic.
Do you know of any websites that are better?
