1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    What's to understand? It's a lamp.

    This is a cool idea -- or some kind of flatwoven rug, in any case. I'm still not sure if the shag makes sense with the coffee table.

    I feel like shag and the coffee table together generate too much of a conflict between the textures.

    Why not a walnut (or other interesting wood) surfboard table? Something long enough to complement the Knoll but not terribly wide so as to take up movement and floor space.

    Not to interrupt the steady flow of snark, but I can't understand why mafoofan is getting so many irritable responses. I don't know much about him and don't think many well read people would agree with his conception of modernism, but he is just asking for a few suggestions.

    First thing is first though, Stephenhero doesn't really know much about architecture...as an architect, I can tell you his long winded 'ideas' on what constitutes good or bad architecture are pretty silly. I just recently read his post about 'truth' in architecture and it is a pretty juvenile attempt at 'expert posing'. He is good at posting pictures and being rude under the pretense of being some kind of guru. Just ignore him, he is lonely and unfulfilled.

    Skinnygoomba has decent taste in wood furniture but knows just about as much as Stephenhero albeit without the strident assertiveness. There was another poster who said a bunch of things in a conciliatory tone but was equally bereft of any architectural theory.

    Anyhow, the best way to decorate your place is to pick pieces that you can use and you think look nice. If that means throwing in a Nakashima or raiding DWR, then that's okay. If you are trying to showcase your good taste or personality through furnishings then you are bound to look silly at some pt.

    Even if what you say is true, SH is, at the very least, entertaining.

    Almost as awesome as psychoanalyzing and impugning the credentials of someone you've never met.

    Perhaps in general, but vernonclark is an architect, so in this case he knows.

    I wasn't referring specifically to him. Foo's lawyering abilities have also regularly been dragged through the mud on StyFo. But, in any case, isn't SH an architect, too?
