Aw that's too bad, Lynxwiler. I hope you got some good stuff anyway. I actually went to a show a few weeks ago where Amanda Visell was one of the exhibiting artists. Got two prints, but I still am in love with the Tiki Room stuff *sigh*

Re: Toto Aquia Dual-Flush Toilet

we have the nexus and vouch for toto. they are a bit spendy, but since a toilet is a household fixture that you could say receives high traffic, we decided we were okay with putting some extra $ into it.

The credenza is vintage Florence Knoll and not original to the house...it just happened to work there. Looks great!

so glad to hear a happy ending(? beginning?) to your search for your home's architect. your house is beautiful and i, probably like many others here, would love to see more photos in the future. furnishings are lovely as well! question: is the wall hung credenza original to the house?

Found more Cliff Mays in Orange County in a sketchy part of Costa Mesa. They are on Center Street, between Pomona Ave and Wallace Ave. Most are in fairly good condition, some have been stuccoed over. From the outside, none look to be inhabited by the MCM-lovin' kind. I snapped some bad pics (below)....
