at the NYC store, you basically just need a business card and you're good for 20%.

The JM bed is really good looking, definitely one of my favorite bed designs.

This one I love, likely due in part to the fact that it's an installation and everything is cohesive.;

Retail is indeed for suckers. When I got the Wooden chair, I got 20% off right then and there. Shows you the margins that they are calculating.

 

I used the Thinking Man's chair a bit and, given how it looks/ the material it is made off, it is quite surprisingly a comfy chair. Ditto for the Wooden chair which must be the most comfortable one I own. I think this due to a superb lounging position and the massive give/ flex of the beech slats.

Very happy with the bar back installation. The construction is fantastic, the drawers work exactly how I envisioned and each will hold 16 upright bottles (eight drawers in total), and the upper shelves and stem hangers look great full of glassware and such. I just emailed him to see if he could build a wine cabinet. It would take up most of a wall in my formal dining room, be about 14' long, 29" deep, and six feet high. The depth allows for two bottles per cubi. I have a row of clerestory windows at 7'6" and the ceiling is 13' there going up to 15' two feet from the walls. It should look pretty cool.

What, no pics?

I've considered it a few times but I have been on SF too long not to know the shitstorm that would unleash. For one thing, if I posted pics, this thread would suddenly be "blessed" by an appearance from GreenFrog.

Best I don't. I promise to post the wine installation when/if it gets done though but that is likely a 2015 project.

I just finished my teak shelf for above the credenza we bought. Found some old teak in dad's shop, milled it down to the right size, sanded, then stained it. Just finished waxing. Putting up some CB2 neck-in wine racks on each side and maybe a plant or a Sapien bookcase next to it. Pics to come later.

I was really curious to see how it turned out.

Looks like the shin-smasher 3000.

Why does functionality have to be sacrificed for design?

A shame he's not a toad, green toad leather could look cool as a bar counter.

That's life not everything can be as brilliantly functional as mini-skirt.

Slightly off topic and I could be wrong, but I think that regardless/irregardless is the correct word for the sentence.

I was having a little fun with a word that does not exist in proper English.
