posting my favorite chairs, stop me if this is not appreciated.



Greatly over-used, but i still love it:



just generally enjoy these.

My issue with Barcelona's are having your head flop back over the top of the chair.

Anybody know any nice, small, twin sized bed frames? Into industrial or modern looks. Can't do proper brutalism in my space.

They're made for people with functioning neck muscles.

I would look into a Luciano Bertoncini bed called the min bed.

It really is nice work and shows you put thought into the design. I know a local guy who does woodwork, but I wouldn't expect the same from him. He's good for shelves, limited restorations and simple stuff. Was considering having him make me a platform bed based on a well known design and held off because I was not confident he would get the details right.

I woud love one of those Daphine Terra Lumina.

Currently on the market for a decent, simple looking standing lamp, I have a hard time finding things I would see in my living room for less than 200 or so euros.

Got those 4 chairs for 50, Thonet inspired real leather, quite satisfied with this. I was thinking maybe I could get originals for the sides when I can afford it. I haven't got a nice table yet, but something with metal simple feets or support and with a black top would fit I think, considering I have a rather light wooden floor and white walls.

Thanks! I live in the details, they can make a big difference in how you feel about the same piece years later.

Juyle, I would look at the Nyhavn table by Finn Juhl or the LC12 with a dark wood top. Both would seem to fit the bill for a 4 person table.

They indeed would, thanks for the suggestion. Can't afford any of those things now though, but I will keep looking for good looking or easily modifiable ones on ebay and local classified. I will take some pictures soon, but I got the keys of the flat last week and don't even live there yet smile.gif

That bed was a great recommendation. Anything else in your well of design filled brain?

Going to get one of my art friends to construct a pipe frame for the meantime. Hopes that holds me for the next 6 or so months.

That's really cool. I was late for lunch today because I kept clicking next.

And that essay didn't include winding the guides, setting the reel seat or finishing.

 

It's amazing how much work goes into a bamboo rod. And then to see them in action:

 

 

Easy to see how they are worth 2-4K.

Any cool ideas for moderny christmas tree substitutes? Either something I could DIY, or buy cheaply locally.

I'm in an apartment without a ton of space but I am not going home for christmas until the morning of the 24th so I want something. I abhor fake trees and am not sure a miniature pine tree is really worth it.

My aunt and uncle had a pretty cool vintage Scandinavian wooden "tree" a few years back when they were stuck in a small apartment while house hunting in a new city...can't for the life of me remember what it was though.

Something like this would be pretty easy to make if you had basic woodworking tools.


Or, what about finding an interesting looking branch, spray paint it some color, stick it in a vase, and put a few ornaments on it?
