    It's like a cross between Harry Potter and Zoolander's Derelict!

    Hmmm...

    This?

    Or this?

    Every time I see an Evans piece it stops me. I find it calming, studied and quite subtle in its use of colour and form, though it should be none of those things being made of steel and sweat; hammers and muscle. Like all great art, it never tires and I never tire looking at it. The other brutalist work pales.

    He seemed like a cool cat as well.

    Is it worth 100K? Yes, if you have a 100K to spend on an very beautiful piece of furniture.

    I hate the Memphis work, especially that stupid kettle Graves did as I received four of them as gifts.

    Couldn't decide whether to post this here or in the architecture thread, so going in both.

    Jaime Hayon Room 506 at Royal Hotel Copenhagen
    (The hotel was completely designed by Arne Jacobsen and is famous for room 606, which sits like it did when first build and the Drop chair was designed especially for this hotel).

    Great building , terrible interiors. Interior looks like a collection of interesting pieces of furniture that hate each other.

    You can't help noticing every single thing. There's some tension, but they all seem relate anyway.

    I have 4 of those Kaiser Idell lamps (vintage). I notice DWR is now carrying the reissues.

    I love both Evans and Memphis (PoMo in general). In fact, I think they should be mixed together.

    In a fit of nostalgia, I've decided to bring back the Patrick Nagel print.

    Fritz Hansen reissued them, they're nicely made. I bought one for my desk and will probably get the floor lamp for the living room.

    Grabbed a pair of Ricardo Fasanello Anel Chairs. May redo in a steel grey leather.

    Very impressive design. The leather seam on the back is not proper, should be hidden, don't think it was intended to show like that.

    Any thoughts on this Adrian Pearsall 2399-TC coffee table? Saw one with slightly different wood for sale locally at a shop for what I thought was a good price (at least compared to different models of Pearsall coffee tables which I can find prices for). Looked to have the original glass (unlike some I see online which have been replaced with a plain rectangle) and it was not scratched like the one in the picture.

    It is perhaps a little too narrow for my space, but I think a glass top table would go a long way towards convincing my friends that coffee tables are not footrests/additional seating and being able to see through it would counteract my initial aversion to placing a coffee table in front of the sofa.

    Not bad, but I prefer Astro G-plan, which is probably much cheaper.

    I like both of those, but the Pearsall has the edge, in my opinion.

    It looks nice and is similar to, but also pleasantly different from, the knock-off Noguchi coffee tables that every man and his dog seems to have nowadays.
