F*ck all the fake fiberglass seats they make to look like Corvettes, I'm making a sectional couch out of raw steel and leather out of the entire bed of the truck. I figure I can cut it in half and get two couches, maybe shorten one up for a love seat. The tailgate will fold down for a table.
that table rules!

Here, continuing the Alessi theme. A present from my wife (salt and pepper shakers). They have magnetic feet so you can stand them or hang them on the little pole, it's adorable:

yea..that's the side of him I don't like. He makes a few nice things, but the rest of his stuff is extremely tacky and ugly.

This is one of the coolest things I've seen lately: radiator by Joris Laarman, in the DroogDesign collection. The spreading leaf design actually serves a practical purpose, too, it distributes heat more efficiently. (Got the pics from jorislaarman.com)

I that! I generally like the very simple, minimalistic design, as you can see from the pictures I posted..but, if I were to decorate a house, and I will in a matter of years, I would have very simple pieces but add a bit more extravagance, more complicated pieces like shown above.

The picture you posted is actually a perfect example of what I mean..the very sleek, simple chair, white walls, dark hardwood floor and then the more extravagant heat radiator.

Thx, droogist! I'm definately going to check that website out!

Louis the Ghost by Philippe Starck

it is about US$308 each before tax
and there were about 300 of them in the show
so, it sums up to 92,400.
