    It's a pretty cool place. I'm a big fan of natural elements in the home.

    Like the pillow more than the chair.

    Indeed it is. Fabricius/Kastholm did make some amazing furniture.

    I could see myself playing videogames on that for hours.

    I just stumbled upon this guys furniture while doing some research on purple heart wood. I love it:

    I think I'll do my next project in purple heart which is my version of the 'Index three low' book case.


    Are you doing it yourself? Purple heart can be a difficult wood to work with.

    I love when sofas have fabric that looks like it would make a nice suit or sport coat.

    Read recently somewhere that Knoll used to use menswear fabrics to upholster, before incorporating the designs into (presumably more durable) upholstery fabrics.

    There are examples in other threads of this sort of thing (doing MCM chairs in Mad Men suit fabrics seemed a trend for awhile) but conventional wisdom is suit fabric is too delicate to be sat on. Weird, because, well, pants.

    Some of which have recently been revived by 'Langeproduction'.

    Just bought a Pollock chair on eBay and I'm super excited to pick it up. I've been sitting on the $12.99 IKEA office chair for four years.

    I'm not 100% sure I'm in love with the color, but, for the price, I think I did pretty well.

    Considering what you came from, I think you did very well for yourself!
