There are benches that I prefer to that, but I do not dislike it. My dismissal of most pieces in that spectrum is that they are now in the category of 'cutesy things' chosen by every late 20's artsy chick decorating her apartment.

Your Princeton and "large IB" credited brains should be able to figure out what is wrong with the premise of your question. We've been through this already, no?

Foo, I meant to post in here that I saw the Chair_One in the wild last week. My friend's architecture firm recently expanded their space and they had added, among other things, two of the white chairs with the concrete base and a few Stool_Ones as well. They look much less uninviting in person, and I did find them both comfortable. Seeing (and sitting) is believing.

That's what I've been saying! The Chair One is actually pretty comfortable.

I'd rather have a grissini bench, knoll bench or a daybed that poses as a bench.

No leather, no fabric*, no day bed.

If the design is great it is possible I'd tolerate some fabric but I doubt it.

Question. If you want somewhere to stack books, why are you getting a bench.

Wouldn't a bookshelf be much more suited to the task? Stacks of books tend to be unwieldy, if you want the bottom book, you have to move them all.

I'm not going to go into a long explanation but I already have lots of places where books are (in other words bookshelves) but these ones will remain on a rug or the bench, near a couch and in a central location of my loft and visually speaking I need something low and elongated to make it work.

Finn: good suggestion, dunno this guy though, hard to order?

Mulling over purchasing a new sofa. Have taken to the Bantam sofa from DWR (gasp) which fits in my price range nicely. Visited the store today and am choosing between a few fabrics. Any thoughts on the below:

1. Maharam Hallingdal Brown - 70% wool 30% rayon, has a coarse, fuzzy hand. Hopefully that doesnt cause breathability issues, I got warm easily.

2. Maharam Hallingdal Light Grey

3. Ducale Wool 78% wool, 8% alpaca, 9% linen, 5% nylon

The two first are made by kvadrat, so quality wise, just can't go wrong.

I love hallingdal.
post #2490 of 4014
I like the second choice.
