Old and the New

I can't remember where I pulled these images from. If or when I figure it out I will post link.

Check out full story and more images @ Dezeen

I have always liked modern additions on old buildings. Maybe one day when I purchase my first brownstone near the park in Fort Greene I can do the same.

The 214

The original 14
New Vs. Old

I have been searching for the perfect dining chair for years and this one might be it. Muji and Thonet have come together to make a modern version of the 150 year old classic. The chair once known as the 14, now known as the 214 will only be available in Japan, Germany, Paris and the UK. Too bad I live in the US!! sigh

Cabin Life

via PS Projects

via Spoon & Tamago

Some of my best memories as a kid and young adult were spent in Vermont with my family and upstate NY with my boys at a friends cabin. It is very necessary to get out of the city every once and a while especially in the winter.
These are two amazing modern style cabins I came across. Maybe they will do a swap with me, they can stay in my mini Brooklyn apt and my wife and I can chill by the fire in their freshy cabin.

I figured I would hit you guys with at least a few affordable items in this "All Together" Don't even bother looking at those boots the price will make you mad.

So I NEED a Kilim or Navajo inspired rug, but lately I've been thinking about layering it with a Jute rug. Maybe a 8 X 10 Jute with a 6 X 8 Kilim. Thoughts?

One of the reasons my wife and I live in the apartment we are in now is the antique claw foot tub. I'm not a bath guy but I do like the way they look.

190 Bowery

When walking past this building the other day I was reminded about the article in New York Mag I read a couple years back. Stories like this always blow me away, purchased by photographer Jay Maisel 42 years ago for 102 grand. Him and his family are still chilling in this massive 32,000 square foot home in the heart of downtown NYC. Check out the article and more of the pics here.
