What you're confusing for a step is actually the reveal, photographed at an angle.
I agree that they would look better with a 2-3 inch gap rather than 3/4"
Well, it just isn't very helpful. It's kinda like "Eames era"...more of an umbrella eBay search term. I don't buy or sell things on eBay...I don't care for Eames designs (or anything by Herman Miller in general), and shudder to think that period of time as owned by Eames. I find it amusing that there are lengthy threads on which Eames chair fakes are recommended, when I don't recommend the authentic ones.
I'm not sure what people mean when they use the term, but I get the feeling they are talking about "American".
This is the most Canadian post I've ever read. You guys could add it to your national anthem.
Hmm. Seems like there's a lot of conflation there, but I think I get your gist [or however you spell that word].
Here's some of that fancy woodwork everybody seems so enamoured about.
Impressive but bizarre
Not so keen on those two cabinets. The Eames were significant in American modernism, love them or hate them, they had a lasting effect.
I am not a fan at all of those furniture pieces that treat a piece of wood in a "natural" form and then slab legs on them for tables or, even worse, cut them into drawer fronts. So uninspired and boring.
The second one at least has a bit more novelty to it but agree that it is rather bizarre and looks like apart from that surface treatment there is not much to talk about.
I second the above comment on Eames: You might not like what they have done and for sure, certain models are over exposed. There is no doubt though that what they did - design and manufacturing invention - is of great significance.
The first cabinet would be very nice looking if the back legs were repeated for the front and all of the drawers were flush and without the slab. I like slab furniture, but used sparingly and not made in a fashion that makes a slab very impractical.
Yeah cut that extra shit off.
I like the Minecraft dresser.
Quite honestly, anybody who would buy one of those offensive pieces should be drawn and quartered.
Well, you know, I live in Bernal, so I guess it's to be expected.
