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.

    Cheers,

    You have paid $2000 for Room and Board chair. Now you need to go across the street to DWR or Restoration Hardware and purchase an awesome table. Have a caramel macchiato at Starbucks between the trips.

    I'm sure Jazan the Puss is going to troll me endlessly, but here is a shot of the side. This is a bookcase I built for my hallway a long time ago and have recently touched up and refinished with oil.

    I know I started another thread on this, but this is probably the better place to ask. I want to get something besides the ubiquitous Eames lounge chair (and/or Womb or whatever). Something under $7K, designed in the last 10 years, and statement but not flashy. Any recs along those lines?

    And who makes the sling chairs in this Roman and Williams pic (that has been posted in this thread at least 3 times already)?

    That limits it a bit.

    (I don't know if this ever went in to production)

    That was sort of the goal, to get people to move beyond MCM a bit and into more recent stuff (we already have Eames DSW chairs around the table, a Milo Baughman recliner, and maybe adding some Kaare Klint safari chairs, so that is enough MCM for anybody). The Autoban is great, saw it at De La Espada a while ago. Usually Hudson stuff is crazy expensive, so I haven't bothered to look at the Suit, but may do so.

    I was disappointed in the Matthew Hilton Low Lounge chair, it just lacked that flair that he normally gives stuff (like the Fin chair which I love):

    But I do like the Desiron Bedford...
