Beautiful Chairs

Yes, I am working on my BFA and yes, my show is still going up next week...WHAT?

I'm taking History of Interior Design and Architecture right now. I don't think I've ever loved history so much in my life. I love learning about beautiful things! And not awful, people-killing wars. But one bad thing is that it makes me want more beautiful things that are so expensive that the chances of me having all of them is close to not happening anytime soon.

I wanted to get one for my friends one of these babies because she's obsessed with miniature versions of designer chairs. (Can be purchased here)

PS. Note how much these MINIATURES cost. Imagine how much the life-size ones cost. I want them all!!!! SOMEDAY I WILL BE RICH! (And yes, just so I can purchase these beautiful things.)

$670 (Le Corbusier's Le Grand Comfort)

$220 (Eero Saarinen's Tulip Chair)

$430 (Mies van de Rhoe's Barcelona)

$670 (Eames's Lounge Chair)

$265 (Eames's La Chaise)

$440 (Le Corbusier's Chaise Lounge)

$265 (Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair)

And yes, I am still planning on purchasing one of these when I get a real job with a real paycheck. And by the way, the price went up since I last spoke of them.

Mini Pitcher

2 of these little guys arrived in the mail today. They fit snugly in my hands.


My friends think that I'm embarrassed to be Japanese. Are you kidding me? They're awesome! Especially this guy: Kouichi Okamoto

My vow...

Back in November 2009, Thanksgiving week, I promised myself I wouldn't go shopping until my birthday. Yesterday, I was reminded by my favorite Banana Republic that my birthday is this month. They send me a gift certificate every March to lure me into their store. So, naturally, I went online to see what fabulous new collection they're coming out with. DISAPPOINTED! (Of course, except for the $300+ hooded leather jacket I spoke of earlier today. But even with my gift certificate it costs as much as my rent! So that's an automatic no.) I'm hoping they'll have better stuff by the end of the month. BR don't let me down!

But then maybe I'll buy a book that I've been wanting for awhile.

Or something from Anthro.

Or that letterpress machine I've been wanting. (Although I was quite disappointed by whoever printed the samples at some scrap booking store. So that may also be a no.)

Or save it for something big? NO, I have to buy myself a gift.

Dream come true...

Hooded leather jacket.
