We finally have a table and chairs!
Architect's table from The Frameshop, Islington.
50's Swedese Chairs designed by Yngve Ekstrom from Auktionskompaniet.com. (check it out as they have some great items for auction at great prices).
Next on my wishlist is this signed lithograph by Jean Cocteau.

Dorothy Parker was a writer and critic for such magazines as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and the New Yorker and her quotes are pure genius! Thanks Lou for the insight.
Money cannot buy health, but I'd settle for a diamond-studded wheelchair.
If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.
Salary is no object: I want only enough to keep body and soul apart.
And in response to her publishers request to write more, "I'm too fucking busy..... or vice versa'
When recommending books, I always say The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. It's one of those books you wished you hadn't finished even though it took 200 pages to really get into it. But an English guy overheard me recommending it to a friend on the T-bahn the overday and after I had got off announced to said friend that it was the worst book he had ever read!
I am in shock! I have never met anyone who has read The Fountainhead and not loved it! How can you resist the temptuous realtionship between Roark and Dominique. Oh those scenes between them. The quarry, his stark office.... well you will have to read it to find out more.

The final year students in Fashion, Advertising and Graphic Design at Stockholm Beckmans College of Design presented their final collections in January.
I loved fashion student Heidi Nilausen's collection and the video is just beautiful. Perfect colours.
Check out the others at www.beckmans.se/inaperfectworld.

The newly married artist couple Carl and Olga Milles acquired a property 1906 on the cliff of Herserud high above lake Värtan on the island of Lidingö. Their intention was to build a home incorporating space for their art studios and a place to exhibit their sculptures.
Now it also exhibits contempory artists in a beautifully designed gallery extension. We loved the graphic paintings of Hare-Linje.
