    My comparatively cramped Tokyo apartment, which still needs some finishing touches.

    NR, the wood looks very nice, but it's definitely not my style of furniture [​IMG] Also, I am not really into "red" woods. The desk chair caught my eyes.

    Is that a auto radiator ornament on the dresser?
    What happened to the guitar?

    Yeah, that's a Lalique hood ornament. If original, it's worth a fortune...

    You should get a mousepad for that mouse, lest you wear a hole into your desk.

    It's a modern repro, but I know an exclusively Lalique antique shop that has an original in grey crystal that's priced at around $20k.

    The mouse is sitting on a pad, believe it or not.

    Nantucket Red, I've only heard horror stories, but is your place big by Tokyo standards?

    It's 19", which I find pretty adequate. Jeez, Slim, don't get me wanting more stuff!

    Well maybe when I move on to bigger and better, I'll send you the 24" widescreen I'm using on my media computer in the bedroom.

    Actually, it is relatively spacious. It's also very modern -- the contrast with the place I moved out of is like "the difference between clouds and mud," as the Japanese would say.

    I'm assuming that's the table you had made? It's very nice and I love the accompanying chairs.
