    Why does everyone want to look like they live on a farm?

    Helps the Gun Club tweed appear to be appropriate.

    or a castle?

    What? You don't have a proper throne and lectern? I think these look comfortable:

    At the very least, you must have a pair of proper, non-trendy speakers:

    The key is to dress like a farmer and live in a spaceship.

    We are able to synthesize smiles in the future so there is no need to keep them.

    One cannot underestimate the importance of a warm, homey decor.

    I like the warmth of solid wood furniture as much as anyone else (if not more), but that Amish thing is a bit boring IMO. You can do wood & natural looking but also with cleaner lines and design.

    I kinda like these which seem to match your criteria to a certain extent - when you limit your scope to storage-type beds and wood, number of choices narrows... In particular, it's hard for these not to look extra clunky.

    Yes - and all of the Mainzer beds are very cool. This one too:

    But it doesn't fit Pio's no-cat area criterium

    Greg, thanks for the examples. I had tossed up that Hudson earlier, and then I figured the pricing to be 12k plus for the package. The bed doesn't have to be a storage bed (I agree, they tend to look clunky, and that doesn't thrill me too much) but needs to no more than a few inches clearance from the floor, due to the cat issue. Mafoo, not a log cabin. Just because the foyer to our bedroom is bigger than the usual apartment, in your neck of the woods, doesn't mean we're looking for a castle or chateau style either. Maybe you could Foof the bed? [​IMG] Edit: no wait, the Hudson is not 12k. Too many beds!

    Dude, have you decided on a fabric for your goddamn sofa already or are you still brushing your ass with swatches every evening between wii fit sessions?

    This one is sweet, I think it would be more to my taste if they used a slab for the headboard with rough edges.

    Actually, yes. In fact, we just received the new sofa a few days ago. It's very nice, although we miss the buttons that come on the leather version.

    Doesn't matter - it's going back next week. Something about the feet losing their shine.
