    ^ I like it too, but the knife part is functionally dumb. It wouldn't be hard to make one on your own either if you had the right tools, though it might be difficult to source a nice piece of lumber like that.

    Hah, those are paired with the Saarinen in a different room. Preemptive breakfast nook buying (I don't have one currently).

    I need to commit to buying only things designed in 1990 or later now.

    Why do I like this pot & pan rack? I don't know - i really like it though

    Don't like the price at all though ($3.5k) << not for the faint of heart - unhide at your own risks

    I think it is really cool, but am not sure how it would work outside of a very minimal or ancient, like southwestern France ancient, kitchen. In those it would look great, bringing some warmth to the minimalism, or some geometry to a really old,

    I would think the former. Not only minimalist though, but I think it would work well in an industrial kitchen if there are wood floors or beams.

    Agree. It is a really cool piece for the right place.

    Picnic table made by my brother: [​IMG] Aluminum and some sustainable hardwood. He's a big fan of the exposed bolt, industrial look. Same wood as the fences. Patio and back yard are still works in progress. Wish I could take credit for the drawings, but they're my nephew's.

    That's actually rather nice.

    Not a product, but I came across this house and there's something I really love about how it is decorated. Something a bit Labelking meets 2001: Space Odyssey meets barnyard, for lack of a better description. I can't say that I love everything there but it is a nice, refreshing change from a lot of cookie cutter MCM that is often displayed in house tours

    I love this.

    GDL; looks like British Colonial. This is obviously a contemporary take on that but that is most certainly colonial. Quite typical of what you'd find in South Africa or Kenya.

    +1, there's also some French/Italian influences in the antique stuff. I just bought a dining table in more or less that style: [​IMG]
