The fact you've created criteria shows you care.
Don't think I'd want this in my house, but this has a pretty cool effect:

If I was going to have shelves full of empty mason jars I'd pick those too.
I like SkinnyGoomba's suggestions and was also going with Kjaerholm's PK20/22/24/25.
I love Rietveld's Utrecht chair, especially in blue felt and without contrast stitching but unfortunately they are fucking uncomfortable.
If you prefer to make more of a statement, Newson's Wooden Chair and Morrison's Thinking Man's chair are both surprisingly comfortable to lounge in for a long time.
A cheaper, more understated alternative that I quite like are Welling's Hee lounge chair for Hay and Tolvanen's Visu lounge chair for Muuto. And of course, we already talked about the About a Chair that comes in quite a few lounge choices and also with an ottoman.
About a lounge chair is ugly as fuck, it looks like it melted.
How about an eames lounge
Other options could be PP 225, Lange Production FK 87, Ox Chair, Platner Easy or Ro.
Depending on how contemporary the space is something like Verzelloni Zoe could be an option.
I'd go with French Art Deco club chairs in leather. Else I'd pick up something Scandinavian on vintage market.
P.S.I am averse to buying from stores copies of great antiques when antiques are still available and less expensive.
Some of Scarpa's table are being produced by Cassina now (actually starting 2013, but news to me);
Looks like a ping pong table.
I think I need a plant in my living room. I'm envisioning something about 1½ meters in height, so a large plant or a small tree. I haven't started looking yet, but I assume some of you have given this some thought and have experiences with what's good. So, any recommendations on what to get or not to get?
Basically just has to be something tropical to survive indoors all-year, and preferably a tropical tree that can handle low-light.
I was thinking an olive tree, but before I start looking around I was hoping for some inspiration. Are there any particular ones you like?
Mind you, I'm not an expert in this area so this is all based on my coming up to speed on Bonsai. Most container trees are happy if they are only indoor for the winters (tropic and subtropic). And it's pretty much required that you pick a tree that does not go dormant in the winter. I have a brush cherry and natal plum that will be indoors for the winter, they are bonsai trees, but it's the same premise.
Any woodworkers need a Kreg jig?
Cheapest it has ever been on Amazon
