SERIOUSLY considering getting a piece like this in my half sleeve:
the wife isn't super sold on it yet, I do appreciate her feedback on my ink, so I have some work to do. I was also considering a technical drawing of the chair, like one of those line drawings with the pieces exploded. I'm working with a small(ish) space so I'm restricted on the size.
I have one for each of my grandfathers to remember them, I've decided my left half sleeve is going to be pieces for each one of my family members.
My right arm is for times in my life and my hobbies. I have a diamond inside of a horseshoe to commemorate my wedding. A vintage TLR camera, I'm a photographer. a crow drinking a bottle of hooch, got it at my bachelor party.
My love of design goes back to about middle-school and I'm at a point in my life where I have honed in exactly what I like: Mid-Century/Danish design. A lot of people get tattoos for the sake of getting them without any real meaning or thought behind them. What's wrong with dedicating a piece to a timeless design that I have been fond of for years?

Another auction coming up soon, hopefully I can do good this time around again, it's so hit or miss.
I love that chair generally and find that the LCW is easy to sit in, but never sat in the DCW let alone seen one. My wife thinks they all look like pre-school chairs so she doesn't take them serious. Unfortunately besides the kids room I could never convince the wife to agree to sit one of these in any other room in the house.
Very comfortable despite no padded surface. The flexible rubber grommets between the back rest and the support provide enough movement. Ergonomically, the chair is perfect for me. I'm 5-10 and 150lbs.
On another note, I picked up an Eames Lounger and Ottoman last week. Love it!
Here's a cool place near me outside of Pittsburgh. Built in 1960. Only $4500 a month.
This UNIQUE, ONE OF A KIND STUNNING CONTEMPORARY home is nestled on 3.8 wooded ACRES and was designed by the reknowned architect Paul Schweiker. The home, SURROUNDED BY A FANTASTIC DECK for DINNER PARTIES, boasts multiple large windows allowing an abundance of NATURAL LIGHTING and BREATHTAKING VIEWS . A HOME GYM WITH SCENIC VIEWS IS LOCATED IN THE MASTER WING ALONG WITH A LOFT OFFICE. The MEDIA ROOM WITH PROJECTOR is perfect for all of you movies. The home also features A CUSTOM DESIGNED OFFICE, FIREPLACE, and KITCHEN. The MASTER BEDROOM VIEW IS FANTASTIC as is almost every room in the house. This house WILL AMAZE you and leave you BREATHLESS!
^^^Gonna have to agree.
Look like it was remodeled in the mid to late 80's.
80's modern is not attractive to me at all, it struggled greatly in an effort to pull away from the Art Deco/ or Streamline movement but something got lost in translation and the result is the above rental. I can only imagine what it looked like furnished
I say go for the LCW but skip the Noguchi, that table is PLAAAAYED like a drunk chick at a frat house. Go for something like a Lane Acclaim articulated coffee table.
I had a phone bid in on an original Herman Miller Plycraft on Monday and the convo went like this:
"Ok, we're just about ready for this lot, all you need to do is say YES or say NO."
"Opening bid $500"
"Next bid $2500"
Seriously though, a jump straight to $2500, that's cray cray.
If it really went $500 to $2500 with a left bid, the person who had the left bid got screwed by the auction house. With a left bid, the auctioneer is supposed to step up by the pre-agreed increment for that object. If they started at $500, the increment was probably supposed to be $100.00. If that happened to me, I'd refuse to pay and file a complaint with the state licensing board.
