    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've been trying to find a stainless steel cabinet like this, but haven't found much luck. I'd love to own one.

    Love that sofa!

    The colours, the texture, that thing is sweet.

    Yup, I was watching an interview with him taken a few years prior to his death. Interesting person, he was offered something in the way of $22M for his design and turned it down because he did not want it to be mass produced.

    I appreciate the suggestion, but I don't really want to be one of a thousand wood workers working in the style of guys like Nakashima, Maloof or Krenov.

    I'm not quite sure how Maloof originally carved those seats, but I imagine it involved a series of spokeshaves and rasps and very few angle grinders.

    The Industrialists in San Francisco frequently have these. No idea if they'll ship out of state though.

    New machine for sitting...outside! waited 16 weeks, and it arrived in time to spend 16 more weeks in the basement.

    It's the real deal (Cassina) they started making the outdoor ones about a year ago. $2350. Stainless frame, sunbrella fabric. I bought it for some solitary cigar smoking outside, my navy chairs are proving to be uncomfortable for a long sit.

    Thanks Matt. I agree the Tokyo lounge is awesome, can't say I wasn't tempted.

    I have thought about it too, but it seems silly to have an outdoor chaise in a city where it rarely gets above hard nipple temperatures. I like that Cassina is releasing this stuff. It's fun.

    Yet another chair Corbusier ripped off. Considering Marcel Breuer made his Wassily Chair in 1926 and Corbusier came up with this in 1928 I often wonder if he had Chinese blood somewhere.
    Both I find slightly uncomfortable to be honest for longer periods.There are aesthetically pleasing though. When you consider the revenues brought in by such pieces today the management of Peugeot must be kicking themselves!

    And mies designed the MR lounge in 1927 with an influence from Breuer. All similar but all different.

    Do you not find that the bar across the top of the back of the chair is inclined to stick into your back?

    The leftette is on a tear to replace much of our furniture in the mastercraft style. Near as I can tell that means '70s glam. I think she's trying to turn us into a single gay guy.

    Anyone know what to look for? Avoid?

    Examples:

    Kinda love this coffee table. The coke won't blow off the side of it.
