    Based on it's proximity to the computer in the "hallway" I assumed that chair would double as computer chair. :embar:

    Yeah, it looks like an office chair.

    None of those pieces (aside from the couch) make any sense to me. Different strokes.

    The functionality of the stool has compelled me to revisit using a stool. But not that stool. It would make dopey too comfortable in my apartment. We would want him to socialize, not sit on the floor and spend all evening making googly eyes at our side table.

    Wait 'til you have kids, Foo. Then, whatever space you have and whatever furniture occupies it will be both leased from, and made free of any contrived thoughts, by said kids.

    We have a set of four of that type of chair. Some have marker and crayon on them.

    My younger daughter assembled the one we have, which makes her like it more (blue laminate top). They are great because they are easy to move around and also serve as good tables for a cup of coffee (as opposed to a coffee table) or for a laptop when you are sitting on something else. I keep meaning to pick up some more.

    I am back and forth on the rug. We either want a black-and-white pattern or a heathered grey shag. The latter is not possible for a cheap price unless we go the flokati route, which sounds highly troublesome.


    Well, yes, I think it is worth keeping in mind that all you are seeing is a layout of hypothetical furniture. There should be no expectation of being able to sense our personal "story" from such a diagram. Give me the benefit of the doubt that we actually intend to live in our living room.


    The first suggestion is actually really smart. It had crossed our minds to put in something like a Nelson bench. However, it is hard to disengage with the table, which is irresistibly awesome.

    The stool could go, too.

    THe other suggestions aren't going to happen. The Mirror Ball lamps are a favorite of ours. They are 99% happening. The Eames Aluminum Group chair is a great chair, and the Cappellini Lotus is obviously influenced by it, but this is one of the cases where I think a classic has actually been improved upon. Unlike the Eames, which is just leather framed by aluminum, the Lotus is fully structured on molded plywood. You get the thinness of the Eames, but with more solidarity.


    No, yes, no.


    What about a couple of these, side-by-side?

    I am happily pretending it won't be an issue. Chances are we'll just keep them locked up in a pen.

    This is the same stool as the one originally proposed in the layout. The one I picked is just the limited-edition Tamura version, with etched in tree rings.

    no and no. Solid simple rug only applicable for that table.

    Eh. The more you push back, the more probable the shag becomes.

    Alternative to the Nebula table:
