For my next place, I want a Polder Sofa in Grey and an original set of Wenger chairs in walnut. Not sure what coffee table to get.

Ah Mackintosh- I've seen on eof those in person at a showing in Glasgow at the art school. As you can tell by my first post, I lean towards the american craftsmen styles but there is some Mack I like.

I have one! Armchair/ottoman though. We dig.

Where to begin:

Charles Sectional by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia in Cognac or Charcoal Leather



MDF Italia Random Bookcase



Steelwood Chair by the Bouroullec Brothers for Magis



Hudson Chairs by Starck for Emeco

kronik, all nice pieces.


How do you like the Le Bambole, if I can get Limn to discount, I may buy the sofa and chair. Does the denim wear hard and give fades like my APCs?

We bought a floor model too (around 60% off) from a store in DC. It does seem to have faded a wee bit at the corners but otherwise I can't tell. I managed to stain the ottoman by sitting a piece of bread with butter on it (while on a paper towel) ... that managed to leak through the paper towel (f you, Bounty). Need to call someone about that. Overall, I like the chair quite a bit. I wish I had room for it as our living room is small/cramped and the chair/ottoman are relatively voluminous, given their design, as individual pieces.

I say go for it if you like the style / can swing it.
