1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I kick myself for not buying George Nakashima's furniture ten years ago when it was affordable and he was mostly unknown. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Or Wharton Esherick. [​IMG] lefty

    Simply type in Eames or Danish. Apparently those are the words to describe everything and anything made in the Mid-Century.

    I'm very fond of mid-century French furniture.

    And wonderful furniture from Italy in the '40s and '50s

    These have long been a favourite of mine:

    'Domestic Animal' sofa from 1986, now a design classic by Andrea Branzi.

    Speaking of Branzi, I really love this by him:

    Ahh, yes, I am very familiar with his work [​IMG]

    Mollino and Graffi worked together occasionally. Mollino was very eccentric and his projects often resulted in lawsuits -- his designs are very interesting -- it reminds me of Antoni Gaudà and has a kind of Art Nouveau look about it.

    Also, I love this wonderful chair by Carlo Bugatti from his Snail Room, 1902

    Hexagons seem to be everywhere right now -- they are often shown in a cellular formation which fits with the current scientific advances with biomimetics -- engineering mimicking nature. The natural world (at the most molecular level) is a big thing right now but so is 'pixelated' design -- obviously influenced by our ever-increasing reliance on the virtual world (cyberspace).
