Hell, in Finland, architect Alvar Aalto is such a national hero that he is on their money. It seems to me that Scandinavians in general are extremely proud of their world wide known countrymen and ~women. E.g. in Denmark, every child knows that the Sidney Opera was built by the Dane Jørn Utzon. My...

Re: Ikea - Mixed Feelings

I ordered 2 chairs from Bo Concept/Scottsdale. [...] I'd order from them again, but "forewarned is forearmed": Plan to sit on the floor for about 1/2 year. I never purchased anything at BoConcept USA, but I'll consider your warning, thank you! Being a true "MC born", the problem about sitting on th...

Of course the redo is terrible and I always wonder why people buy a beautiful old house (although I share Stephen's point of view that it had some design problems) when they obviously want something they could have had in any ordinary house as well. In Germany we have a saying: You can't argue about...

Chimay, all I can say or rather 'sigh' is: BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for sharing the photos and information. The kitchen is really tremendous and I would never have imagined it is IKEA although we installed an ABSTRAKT kitchen 9 years ago, too. Still very content with it -- it's not Bulthaup or Poggenpohl q...

I also found this: http://www.archsystems.com/collection_l ... =ASI+Stone

I have no idea about their prices, but it is a good source for all kind of chique building materials.

Yeah, it's a funny coincidence that BoConcept opened its Jacksonville store right after we bought the house there ... How could they know? :wink: It definitely is more expensive than IKEA but I know from the BoConcept store in Munich that the quality also is way better. And compared to DWR and other...

I’m buying at IKEA since more than 20 years. As said before, some things are cheep and look cheep, some are okay or even good when mixed with other pieces. We have some closets (there are no built-in or walk-in closets over here) that moved several times throughout the country and are still standi...

Searching the web for information on Cliff May homes, I just stumbled upon your website and I’m pretty amazed to find a forum for people who adore MCM. My name is Connie, I live in Germany (any other Europeans here?) and I’ve always loved clean lines, terrazzo floors, beamed ceilings and floor t...
