I especially like the stool with the lucite legs in the last photo. What do you think? Does fur have a place in your home?

Design: Bookshelves

I have written numerous posts about bookshelves. I’m continually collecting inspiration photos, but I have yet to put together my own massive wall of shelves. I’ve debated doing so in my office, but I just haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe I’ll get to it this winter.

Design: The Eiffel Chair by Eames

The Eiffel chair. It’s such a good looking piece of furniture, isn’t it?

There are loads of reproductions out there and plenty of ideas about how to incorporate them into sleek, modern, classic, and traditional spaces. The chair is quite a versatile piece, so it’s little wonder why it has been popular for so long.

Design: Richard Meier’s Luxembourg House

Richard Meier‘s Luxembourg house is whiter than white. I love the brightness that is throughout the space as well as the super high ceilings.

While I do really like this home, I don’t think I could actually live in a space that’s so open. How about you?
