Furniture Stores in/near Midtown NYC - Suggestions? - Page 6

post #76 of 93
do you know of any 100% authentic reproductions that I can seek out?
post #77 of 93
Onecollection is the licensed peice. If you seek an original you need one built by Arne Vodder at auction. Be prepared to write a very large check smile.gif

Also, please explain the significance of Finn Juhl's furniture to your short friend next visit. His lack of understanding has outmatched my stamina.

You really just don't get it.

"Significance" is almost as repugnant as "coziness" in steering decor choices. I have no interest in recreating a furniture museum.

Why do you continue to reply to me? My response was not to you, you offer me nothing in the way of insight and conversing with you, at least via the Internet, is an agitation. You have no room in your appreciation beyond the very narrow spectrum of things that you like. If I could completely avoid having to include you in this, I would do it, and yet you continue to impose upon me every time I attempt to enjoy this thread or the others related to this topic.

Any respect I have had for you previously, has vanished, and I do not care to earn yours.

Dude, his opinions are righter than yours, why don't you get it?

Foo, on furniture/decor choices, do you steamroll/stonewall your wife the way you do with members of this forum? I've seen you write that you fortunately agree on style choices (or something like that), but I wonder if she just doesn't bother to have an opinion. Would be a sensible (but sad) move for her if you discuss these things with her the way you discuss them here.

And if you discuss them differently here, why not be more open minded here?

Yes, exactly.

So, any-who, if you like Finn Juhl you may find that you also like a lot of other Danish Design.

^ I remembered that quote from early on and it surprised me to see that AY is a fan of that Finn Juhl chair.

Maybe this is the 5%. If you google image Danish Modern, I don't like most of what comes up. I don't like Juhl's other chair, the Cheiftain or something like that.

Lots of Jetsons legs on cabinets. Don't like the jetsons legs.

Chieftain is one of the others, but there are many. I'm definetly a fan of his peices such as the diplomat desk, model 45, 46 and 108 chairs and the 4600 sofa.

I'm being accused of having narrow, rigid taste by someone who only finds virtue in wooden Danish furniture. I cannot be the only one who sees the comedy in that.

not narrow, but definitely rigid.

"only"?

Facts:
1) A is a subset of B.
2) Archetypal_yuppie likes A.
Foo conclusion:
3) Archetypal_yuppie only likes B.

Fail.

A = Juhl 45
B = Danish Modern genre

I wasn't talking about you.

God help this forum if it boils down to discussions between just Archetypal_Yuppie and SkinnyGoomba.
