    Can anyone give me some pointers on a good starter danish lounge chair? $500 price range? What to look for, what to avoid? Designers ?

    Any recommendations for an online source for wall mounted clocks? Prefer analog, but maybe there's something tasteful that's digital?

    I think Hemnes is more versatile. Malm would look out of place in a relaxed environment, whereas Hemnes can play part parts -- either in a modern condo or country house. Also, as others said, Malm is particle board and Hemnes is 100% wood. Hemnes pieces also have less of the so-called Ikea-Look because more of it is pre-assembled. All of which leads to a higher price point.

    Not really into that table, but it's nicely built and detailed.

    Finally banished one of my most hated lamps (fucking thing literally went up in smoke).

    It's replacement;

    Probably will get this as well, since I need another lamp in my study.

    After these, two more floor lamps get the BOOT! Leaving only two hanging lamps left to conquer.

    Based on the stuff that you like, I'm glad that you think that.

    The second lamp looks like a Louis Poulson knock off which incidentally is what I will be hanging (LP CENTRUM) from the ceiling.

    It's not a knock off, but otherwise correct.

    I don't own any fakes, so I'm sure as hell not starting with the lamps. A great deal of the reason I buy stuff like this is because I appreciate the craft behind it.

    Speaking of PH lamps, to mark the of 120th anniversary of his birth, for the rest of this month (only) it's possible to put in an order for this limited edition:
