A pretty blatant rip-off of Fukasawa. Odd too, as both design for Maruni.

Look, everything is theoretical until it's real. We just realized that maybe the best thing isn't the "best" thing. There is something to be said for normalcy. It's not a light you ooh and aah at. It's just a nice enough light that adds a little warmth to a small space.

not to join the dumping on the foo.gif party, but i really do prefer pendants in the dining room, so you can get decent illumination on the table without lighting up the whole room. just my very well-fed two bits.

We had a pendant before. It creates a very strong mood. We did not want that.

I prefer the Sean Yoo, at least aesthetically. The Fukasawa looks like it could have an edge in comfort, but what do I know from looking at pictures on the internet?

This is the first step on the slippery slope to mediocrity, Foo. It's fine for mere mortals like me, but I fear that you, having tasted the rarefied air of the Considered Existence™, will suffocate down here.

It's too pointy.

I agree. I like the shorter back and squared legs.

The yoo chair has better tension in its design. It's quite sensual.

With the peg legs the fukasawa looks a lot like a high chair that got kneecapped.

There you go sexualizing furniture again.

Right. Realized we were over-thinking things and decided to just go with what feels nice.

I think you can expect to see the above quoted back to you with astonishing regularity.

To be honest it sounds like you and your wife are suffering from IDF.......Interior design fatigue. It hits the most of us. At the end of the day you guys have to like it and thats all that counts. As the germans say "Taste is debatable" and its true, one mans rubbish is anothers treasure. I can picture you are your wife analyzing every purchase in dept where you have possibly got to the point where you say....ahh what the hell. Just don´t slide into the mistake of saying "Ah it will do" when you know long term it wont. If you just wanted light my suggestion would have been a simple round LED with a remote control dimmer. They are cheap and you can switch between yellow and white light and adjust the intensity. Keep the faith Foo cheers.gif


Just as an example here one I bought for a hall way where I didn´t need light all the time but on certain occasions lots. There are smalle round versions available

It's a fairly common style of chair, a lot of firms have a rendition of that chair.

Maruni rendition should be ceremonially burned. (Or donated to pre- school)
