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.

    Jokerman, that is a slick-looking bachelor pad. Simple but refined.

    I play. Although its pretty hard to find people to play with because it seems fewer and fewer people are playing. Im not one to have objects out just for looks. Everything on that table gets used or read. The little wood box near the end is actually an old cigarette holder which I use to keep my lead for my lead holder in..

    Found some old broker pictures of our place before we moved in. We didn't change much except for some of the lights and completely differnt furniture. We use more modern furniture (Saarinen table, Cherner chairs, Bertoia bar stools, Knoll sofa) and modern paintings to balance the rustic wood/brick setting.

    The place is plenty warm already entirely made of red bricks, wood floors, columns and beams. It's better balanced now and looks less like a barn - but I don't have pics, so you'll have to believe me.

    ^^I like that a lot GDL, very rustic which is cool. I bet it looks amazing by the way that you have described it. I would love to see some updated pictures if you ever get around to taking them.

    Very nice. I like the open plan and plenty of natural light.

    Florence Knoll sofa?

    Thx guys. Gome- yes, kind of. It wa faster than typing that it's a Florence Knoll inspired sofa (but not exactly a knockoff) that we bought 10 years at cite in Soho. It's in a grey tweedy wool.l

    got it, that was when Cite was able to make them pretty much identical w/o lawsuit issues. No longer. Do you find it comfortable? GF has one at her office, but I can never sit in that thing for more than a few minutes.

    Yes it's comfortable enough but then again I hate fluffy couches. Ours is really not an identical replica like you can find at white on white for example. It is clearly nspired but there's a number of differences with the FK design - not that we cared really, we would have gotten it even if it was a perfect knock-off. Back then, we didn't really know of the FK design and simply bought it because we liked it and it was relatively inexpensive.

    Beautiful place, Greg. I bet it looks fantastic with the Knoll and Saarinen.

    gdl's apt is my favorite place in the entire thread and more or less the type of place I want - bright and rustic, but with some tasteful modern touches and twists.

    Who's place was this, Conne? It sure as hell isn't yours.


    Here are some shots of my own "den of sadness". [​IMG] I only included the rooms clean enough for presentation. Enjoy!

    Excuse the bare living room, we're still looking for drapes and the shelves of the entertainment center will be packed with Christmas paraphernalia in a week or so.

    Brand new kitchen. Fully custom cabinets, drawers, island, sink and countertops:

    The living room. Fireplace is stone, installed this past summer:

    [​IMG]

    The entertainment center was fully custom-built and (finally) finished in August. To put things in perspective, the display is a 50" NEC plasma.

    Crescent (correct term?) window:
