R, that place is looking great! Closing on a place myself in the next couple of weeks... let the renovations begin! Having all of the flooring demos before we move in.... anyway, I'm looking forward to a "chair binge" when we finish
On Ray's office chair tip, I bought a bunch of these Knoll Generation chairs for our office and i have been very happy with them. I love parking in this thing:
A few years ago I did a gig at a company with a cash-cow product and money to burn. The entire company cafeteria had Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, at least a hundred of them. I mean the real ones that cost $600 a piece, not the knock-offs.
One of the very few things that looks better with a nice patina. They had one in the store that was 30 years old with tons of stickers and dents that had been through 2 plane crashes (dunno how that happened!). Even better looking!
