    Used to, yeah there are a lot of really skilled Brazilians besides the somewhat obvious Sergio Rodrigues.

    I'm such a nerd when it comes to this stuff, I don't know anyone else who gets excited over a kitchen.



    I don't know about that, a lot of the private label shops, actually have designs most people would find nice at that price point, the quality is not as a $400 chair, but there's a reason for that. There's also firms like HAY that do dining chairs, which retails from aprox $200, so it's not impossible.




    There is a thread for furniture.

    But from the top of my head Alexander Gufler, Inoda + Sveje, Inch, Autoban, Michael Anastassiades, Jader Almeida.

    Thanks, will check it out. I get excited over kitchens sometimes. Used to build them, now photograph them. My wife designs them.

    HAY is cool. Really liked their store in Copenhagen.

    Interior design is weird. I think the ugliest rooms are often the ones that you can tell an interior designer designed them. I've shot the same beautiful rooms over and over again it seems. Instagram-fodder type stuff. Gets so boring. Eames, Noguchi, sheepskins, subway tile, live edge, terrariums stacked on coffee table books, etc. The interior design equivalent of getting gangbanged by the Mr Porter newsletter.

    I much prefer spaces that look like they were "designed" piece by piece, over time. Designer stuff, sure, but mixed with vintage and cheap Ikea shit. Mostly I just don't like interior design. My wife is on a minimalist kick and I am starting to swing the other way, which is annoying. Douglas Coupland's house is nice.

    That is one of my pet peeves, especially combined with white kitchens.

    I know its a kind of absurd idea, but it amuses me so... but I'm working on creating a home with only future design classics, which is sort of impossible to tell. I will either have an eclectic equivalent of the people who bought entire interior by Finn Juhl back in the day or end up failing completely, but either way I will have a home full of piece I really like.

    What exactly is the point of going opening day (or close to)? It's not like you're going to be surprised by what you find in there

    They usually have some insane promotions on opening day, besides that not much point really

    As a basis nothing, but they are a part of the matching AD set together with the CH34, Egg, Eames lounge and Noguchi table.

    If you have a matching set you can get a feature.

    If you have the new it chair the flagline you get an extra page.

    How can a cap come in an empty case? Is it magic? If it is, it seems like a fair price.

    Or even better Schrodingers hat box, until you open it you have bought a cap in a box.
