    Default Furniture, furnishings, and interior design



    So, as I was sitting yesterday in my living room, I realised that I want to buy a chaise-lounge. I want to put it by the window and use it mostly for reading. I am not sure where to start looking. I don&#39;t really want those modernist pieces a-la le corbusier - I don&#39;t really like leather furniture in general. </p>

    I kind of like this one from Ligne Roset, but it&#39;s quite expensive, of course.</p>

    Sorry for the small picture.</p>

    faust, design-wise, the chair looks a bit dull to me though i&#39;m sure it makes a comfortable seat.
    as my new place too needs to be properlyfurnished, i&#39;d settle something that has bothpracticality and design...
    for now i&#39;m liking this &quot;praline noir&quot;easy chair recliner, whichismade with 28 pillows, each with a different fabric.
    unfortunately this has yet to go into production as it is just a student&#39;s master degree project.</p>

    This site has some interesting stuff (and some ugly ones too :)

    http://mocoloco.com/archives/cat_furniture.php

    It&#39;s a blog-likesite called MOCOLOCO:Modern Contemporary Design, and I used to visit them often to get some ideas on interior lightings, but haven&#39;t looked much at their featured furnitures. Praline Noir mentioned above is also featured there.

    That&#39;s the sort of thing I would design my entire house around if I could.

    I think I might get this. It&#39;s a clock, but you can rearrange individual digits, lol.</p>

    Faust, that&#39;s great! My boyfriend loves stuff like that....a good christmas present maybe.</p>

    We ordered this chair--arriving on Thursday. I never thought I would go for cowhide, but it&#39;s so cute in real life. And it&#39;s quite small, so it fits nicely into the new pad.</p>

    Spike,</p>

    The Barcelona chair really is a classic. I have a vintage one in storage... waiting for the right room (it&#39;s upholstered in a caramel color).</p>

    If you&#39;d consider more affordable options, there are a lot of replicas out there, and I&#39;m fairly certain that the ones in the link below are high quality ones.</p>

    I&#39;m trying to convince the wife that we need a pair in candy apple green.</p>

    it might work, depending on the pieces and colors. i have contemporary (not to be confused with modern) furniture in my apt, and a louis XIV chair frown in, and looks awesome. I have parguet floors though (hate carpet).

    dare i ask for pictures? yeah... i dunno i don't mind carpet too much (i'd prefer concrete), but i never realized how restricted it is. the place i'm moving into is carpeted. i have no furniture, but i will probably end up saving for a year to get an lc2 and it will be the only piece of furniture i will have heh.

    Argh, that barcelona chair along with the eames chair have been on my wishlist for years.....</p>

    </p>

    unfortunately, dorm rooms and small apartments (not to mention cashflow) have been severely limiting factors.</p>

    the Eames chair has beena wish of mine too for several years, just something about it I love.. I ended up getting another big wood framed chair instead a year or so ago, I&#39;ll need to grab some pics of it.</p>
