    Kind of like it, but would be better without the blue tint to the glass.

    despite the height of the back, the Bird chair is very low. Butt is about 9" off the ground, based on my really scientific study of inserting ass into chair and measuring with a tape measure. This compares to about 16-17" of butt height for most couches. IMO perfect for the book chill, though you may want to sit in one yourself.

    we really like the Low-Pad chairs, but for different reasons vs. a Bird.

    Oh yeah bird is in there because I like the seating height and angle, I've never sat in the Linea, which is a bummer cause they cool products.

    This looks like something from the set of Barbarella.

    I like Juhl but I'd pretty much need to get rid of everything including my place to integrate that chair. No Danish modern in da house...

    O, I must admit that the idea of an empty place with just that chair and a few books since sorta interesting.

    All I remember from photos a few years ago was that it was a loft and that you have a corbu sofa. Am I remembering correctly?

    I've been kicking around the idea of getting a pair of Juhl Egpytian chairs for desk chairs that would go in my study which has a corbu sofa and lc1 reading chair.

    Ya, exactly. Nothing wrong with the Juhls but isn't that setup a little bit too much like a classics overdose? I understand that since you do make original furniture yourself things may balance out but still...

    But would it be "authentic living?" :nodding:

    i don't like classic overdose. Usually ends up like a weird mix of "rich power couple goes to DWR, then a fine craft store, and then Nate Berkus"

    Only if you stack the books on the floor.
