The lampshade of the "Tatou" is very attractive, but I dislike the base and stem.

You can't do classics to death.

I wonder if the casters squeak.

I don't understand the concern with things being "done" too much. I'm much more interested in intrinsic merit. If it is beautiful and well-made, I could not care less how ubiquitous it is.

I don't want my home to look like everyone else's.

Around here almost everyone who "likes" design have at some point with in the last 5 years had eames plastic dining chairs, the same goes for most restaurants and I just get so fucking bored looking at it, before that it was AJ 7 and afterwards it was CH24, now they have started getting Hay aboutachair.

The same lemmings all follow what design mags tell them and you don't have to open one to know what's in it.

Kitchen: white on white, with white dining table and before mentioned chairs
Livingroom: swan, egg or Teddybear chair and a fabric sofa.
Somewhere in there there will most likely also be an artichoke lamp and a quirky something because they are special and fun like that.

There are certainly trends, but these pieces are many decades old by this point in time. Precisely because trends come and go, I don't see why it should matter to you what's currently popular. Ostensibly, you are buying furniture for years and years of use, not a single fashion cycle.

Agreed, but it's still annoying when something you appreciate becomes overly popular for a very brief moment.

Some people buy and sell according to trend and calling MCM a trend is a bit of a stretch is more like an all consuming monster at this point.

I find annoying to look at when everyone has the same damn chairs, especially when there's so many options out there, I avoid classic design at this point and only buy new design from young/living designers.

I don't find myself going to that extreme because I think it unnecessarily eliminates a body of work that I actually quite enjoy. Nakashima's work is incredibly popular in the area that I live in (as well as others I'm sure), my first experience with his work was stumbling upon a desk built in his style by his grandson at a workshop local to me when I was 15. I was ignorant to the history behind it at the time, but certainly appreciated the design and craftsmanship. Those would be some of the same reasons why someone would have become a patron in his early years, not because they expected to be able to resell for a profit.

This is a really beautiful lamp.

So this is what happens to all the liposuction fat!
