Apartment foo-nishing - Page 98

post #1456 of 2411
Would they send foo a "filler" for those chips if they're mostly on the underside? I'd just be worried about it accidentally catching trousers or a dress or something- cant really tell if its sharp or not.

the lotus lounge chair in bright blue leather would be awesome in the foo room.

I like the chips, think it adds character.

Foo, I love the lamp (room looks great, if not entirely to my taste), what is it? Please don't make me read through this threak to find out.

I think multiple pieces of art work would be nice above the sofa, not necessarily a really intense color palette but something that subtly adds color and offers a juxtaposition to the furniture.

Maybe an impressionist landscape or something of that spectrum.

Which lamp? The green table lamp is a Piani lamp by Flos, designed by the Bouroullec brothers. The floor-standing one is some random Ikea lamp.

Cappellini is currently "reviewing" our situation and coming up with a "solution."

It's going to be something lame like having someone comeover and fill-in the chips. Or so I predict.

I dont agree that the bottom edge should be chamfered and the reason is that the side is cut back on angle. I might have rounded over the edge, but they may have already done that.
Yeah I didn't notice the cut back . I say ignore it

I hate the glass balls everywhere (awful vase + those vats of insta-nature), I like the colour palette (fuck the haters, go white!).

Sorry, I am at a loss. Terrible suggestion maybe, but I think that a room this moderate in color could stand some interesting artwork, but it does not necessarily need to be modernist or incredibly intense.

I think this is the key point. The room is deferential to the people living there, which is a big reason it looks homey and inviting. All this talk about color reminds me of MC people trying to add pop to their outfits with fun socks, OTT pocket squares, and crazy-ass ties. This is a small space, and there are visually strong pieces in there already. Why clutter it up more?

Only if he hangs it upside down.

If you want art in your house, buy what you really like and then put it somewhere where you can see it and spend time liking it. Under no circumstance is 20 sq. feet of empty wall space a good enough motivation to purchase art and hang it. That's what stupid 25 year old women do with their Audrey Hepburn photo canvas transfers. I don't know why a wall can't just be bare. It's just a wall. Just let it hold your ceiling up. What's the obligation to just fill an apartment with shit you otherwise have no connection to? That goes for the entire room. There's two tables that have almost no genuine function, a bunch of ugly-as-shit terrariums, books nobody will read, and a stupid "look at me" lamp. I'd toss it all out.

If you stop taking SH seriously, the world will make much more sense to you.
