I've been to Funky Sofa's showroom/warehouse. The owner is very "hands on," knowledgeable and willing to work with you on whatever you want. I couldn't find the fabric I wanted there, but he'll make just about anything. And he LOVES MCM! You might want to call and speak with him about your specific ...

Photos from B & H Tour:The best for last - Case Study 20

Guess who left the camera in the car? Not me {hanging head in shame}. . . It was INCREDIBLE. The new owners are accomplishing the restoration with sensitivity, a gentle hand and grace. I'm so thankful to have seen it -- and equally thankful that someone else got pics to share. Hopefully when the re-...

Ochster - regarding bedroom location and security: I think children are safer IN FRONT of the house! If a burglar (or other-type nasty guy) were to break in, don't you think he'd access your home from the rear, where he'd less likely be seen? I've had homes broken into three times; each time, access...

Aly, when looking at your photos, I thought I was in a wonderful time-warp. The bonus was that we found a realtor with a great eye and appreciation for the often misunderstood jewels of real property. Please, more pics!

It looks like a giant version of one of those "click-clack" physics things people have on their desks for meditation! I think I'll try to make a very large sculpture like that for my atrium . . . oops! I guess that's what the punching bags are in the play area at Sea World!

You are correct. The bedroom wall appears to be stone. The outdoor wall -- around the yard -- is tabby.

From what I recall, the "tabby" being made today looks more like cement with sea shells pressed into it while wet. Someone currently living in the South should chime in here (preferably, with Southern accent). The website listed above mentions "pseudo-tabby" which evolved from the original tabby -- ...

This is probably the best site to read about (and see photos of) tabby construction: http://www.co.beaufort.sc.us/bftlib/tabby.htm The Castillo de San Marcos (fort built in mid to late 1600's) in St. Augustine is made of tabby, although they apparently referred to the medium as "coquina shell."

Those walls are made of "tabby." Tabby is a cement made from lime, sand and oyster shells. Its origin is uncertain: although early documents record Indian burial vaults with walls made of oyster shells and lime, no such structures have survived. It is likely that Sixteenth-century Spanish explorers ...

Good point, SDR.

Ikea - Mixed Feelings

I ordered 2 chairs from Bo Concept/Scottsdale. They had to be ordered from and made in Denmark, then shipped to New York, then to Scottsdale, then to me.... 6 months, start to finish. And not once did anyone contact me with updates regarding the continued delays. I had to call constantly, only to be...
