Cool furniture, design objects and desiderata - Page 470

post #7036 of 8380
Any thoughts on the quality of Crate & Barrel's made in USA furniture? I like the idea of this sofa, and it fits our space perfectly. The price seems par for the course in the Crate & Barrel/Room & Board tier, and the fact that it's not made in China seems promising, but I'd love any feedback on price/quality (or design, if anyone has suggestions for something in a similar vein).

EDIT: not thrilled about the stock upholstery, but I assume their custom options are decent.

Did you sit on it or smoke it?

Is the recess around the sink set up so that you can lay a cutting board inside and run water over it (e.g. when filleting fish). If so, neat.

I think that's the cutting board off to the right in the picture...

I realized that but that one seems too small and decorative to be useful, other than for like, bread.

my hunch is the inset around the sink is for splashing so it drips back into the sink instead of on the counter/floor and that the cutting board there slides out further.
post #7046 of 8380

I think the cutting board probably slides out all the way over the sink. It gives you more space when you don't need the sink and makes cutting board clean up easy. 

 

I'm assuming you can also remove it completely to wash after using it for cutting meat.

All of the above.

Matt, very nice to see you around. How is your toilet paper holder? Have you taken it for a spin yet?

Since I'm a cheesy Japan-Ophile I bought some classical Ukiyo-e. Recently I have completed framing one of them.

The picture isn't bad, but the frame is on a different level. Very nice work.
