I can't imagine wood or laminate being heavy enough to rely on gravity alone. The top would slide right off, if you kicked your feet up too quickly.

And after my earlier foo-asco, I will withhold from making any observations of the likelihood of it having an attachment based on pictures on my computer.

They are trying again tomorrow morning.

Third time's a charm?

New design or one of the previous?

I can't believe I have missed this thread.
Mafoofan, why do you insist on buying all your furniture from Cappellini? They are hardly known for their robustness and quality control. Yet, one accent piece from Cappellini is great, but a small living room consisting of single picked furnitures from them is not going to look good.
I only bought my Elan sofa from Cappellini, and only because I knew Cassina built it for them.
Your cappelinni furniture should be considered as a sculpture, and needs to pop out (think of embryo chair or the felt chair) in a more muttered and cohesive interior.
All your interior should be built around the florence knoll sofa with furniture which will blend with this design, which you will not find at cappelinni.

What do you mean? Our lounge chair and coffee table are the only two things we are getting from Cappellini.

I got ours from Flora Grubb, who actually make them.

Wow, those UO product pics are horrible!

The ones you showed earlier looked rather nice. Is what you're planning to have in them something that needs to be watered, and if so, won't it be a cleaning nightmare to keep them pristine looking?

What makes the UO pics horrible? I don't understand how it's any worse than what I showed earlier.

The only difference is that the UO pic shows a slightly different product--the plants require soil. Our balls don't have any soil. They need a sprtiz of water every week or so.

Request for sanity check:

We got the new marble top this morning. It is not cracked. However, the edges are chipped in several spots along the bottom of the table. Is that acceptable on a new table? I'm surprised as there are absolutely no chips in the marble top of our Saarinen table.

I ask because I am jaded and frustrated at this point. My expectations may no longer be reasonable.

Hmm. These animal head clothes hangers were recommended under "If You Like This, You Might Be Into These."

Okay. Thanks.
post #1365 of 2411
Seems to me, no, on something new, no chipping would be acceptable. But maybe marble is a special case, I don't know.
