Ok.

In case the challenge isn't clear: post a photo of your living room so I can mercilessly critique it.

No thanks.

When you are at the level with interiors that you are with clothing I will consider your opinion, as I do with clothing, but until then I think you need to keep refining your approach.

Whatever "level" I'm at with clothing is not a function of being specifically attuned to clothing.

Anyway, my judgment is open for the world to see. If it is poor, it will be evident.

You'd gain more insight into my style from my study, which is not yet complete, so I will not post it.

What about your living room?

It's a bit unfair to attack other's living rooms for being ConTrad when you admit your own does not reflect your style, no? Anyway, that misses my point. I suspect many are more adherent to ConTrad in practice than they like to let on. So, whether your living room reflects your ideal or not, what matters is what it actually is.

I am attacking someone?

You derided the ConTrad living spaces posted. They belong to or appeal to real people.

I'm not persecuting anyone by proving my opinion about their living room.

Saying that I think the furniture should be arranged in a way that the people using it can have a conversation at a comfortable level is not really 'attacking'. If you are an interior designer that makes a living from putting reproductions of Louis Xvi chairs into Mcliving spaces than you know exactly what you are doing. Also, someone of that approach would likely hate what I have as much as I hate what they do, but you are asking me to apologize for this?

Why does it always seem like you are having a different conversation than the one happening?

This thread is about ConTrad. If you don't want to talk about it or judge it or critique it, then this probably isn't the thread for you.

The immediate conversation is sort of boring, I'm having my own and imposing it upon you.

Why does it seem like your goal is to be a fly that requests someone swat at it?

Sounds like someone just doesn't want to show his ConTrad living room.

You can TradConFoof me, foo.

I'm not sure your place is TradConFoofable. It's like being asked to turn a contemporary art museum into a cartoon vampire mansion. Everything would have to be emptied out. Except the Armadillo. It has cross-disciplinary applications.

Well, I take that back.

Insert this in place of your living room sofa:

And switch out your Cappellini coffee table for this:

Then everything else will be sucked into the ConTrad blackhole. Jasper Morrison doesn't stand a chance against the combined force of Ethan Allen and Pottery Barn.
