Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata - Page 128
Desk I'm building for my study. I'll take full sized pics when the rest of the room is complete. Literally the entire room is changing, wall color (going to white) flooring, moldings, furniture, ect.
I bought a moller #57 armchair for use as a desk chair, upholstered in leather.
Building a bookcase for behind it next, in soap finished white oak.
Not sure what to do with the floor, it's a basement but stays dry. I think tile but my wife-to-be is nt even entertaining the idea of tile.
Your Wife obviously has taste. Tile is not for offices, that said there are modern tiles in wood optic that look amazingly real
This doesnt exactly belong here but also doesnt exactly not belong here either. Trying to figure out what to do with the wall above my bed. Dont really know anything about art, dont take any photos, generally at a loss. Would be willing to spend a couple thousand on some sort of solution but dont want to break the bank. The rest of the furniture in the room is pretty simple, rustic wood dresser, oversize leather chair, persian rug etc. What would you guys do?
Get a big rectangular mirror with a dark frame or a nice light rectangular picture with a dark frame. Oh and move the bed to the left and the table to the right so its centered between the doors on the left and right. Where it is looks askew
you've got to go with something you like, Ive never lived in my own place so I'm excited to get into this. old gas station or ice cream shop signage, mirrors, gig posters for favorite bands. I just bought a house in Buffalo so I'm planning on a big bison print from Sharon montrose, a Draplin print for the city of Buffalo and some Pan American Expo posters and some photographs as I come across stuff I like. there are so many independent photographers out there. just surf on Flick for a while and if you come across some you like, see if they do prints.
But seriously, just start looking around and find something that moves you. It's tough to find something that fits with the decor AND is pleasant to look at on a regular basis AND is not gonna break the bank. It might take some time, but that's okay. If you want your place to be authentic, it's a process. It doesn't happen overnight.
