    Mint in color, condition, or both? :confused:

    Appreciate the invite, but they will not work in my house.

    Also I realise I'm the resident whore for Denmark, but Jacobsen doesn't do much for me (furniture wise).

    I get a warm feeling from this, but I am sure it is not from Arne.

    I like that chair in really bright colors. As I like most non-sofa chairs.

    That's probably the only chair I can take in bright colors, everything else I prefer in gloomy colors.

    You are missing Lego and B&O and a couple other bits and bobs like Vesta and Skype, thank me later. ;)



    I don't find them especially comfortable and I would get it in veg tan.


    I like Wegner Flag Halyard at the moment.

    I like the egg, I just don't want to own one (if that makes any sense) and I find them comfortable enough.

    Wegner's Flag Halyard is cool, not surprisingly there is very little for wegner that I dislike.

    I am so over mid-century (Which is a personal preference, not in any way discounting the design at all). When I remodeled my loft, out went all that stuff, in came all contemporary furniture.I do not care if it ages well or not. By the time it ages, I am likely remodeling again. In the classic car world, there are a few truths and I think they can apply to furniture as well: "Good design is good" and "If it was special then, it is special now".

    However, a lot of the stuff that I got is also from Denmark. I have a passion for Hay, Muuto and Menu.

    I still have a plan/personal challenge about creating a home entirely of contemporary furniture and it all being the future classics.

    Doesn't have to be all one of the other. Happy with 20 and 21st century works personally.
