The southwest is such a treasure trove of mid-century finds.

Thanks for the lead!

I love a wall of bookshelves a lot, and I don't mind the whole media-wall thing going on here; printed matter and moving image... but I'm hating on the artwork hanging behind the TV.
It's killing me.

haha- "impassioned comments" is right, you might even say insensitive to some.

I love that blue.

That was a clever and awesome trick to make the light fixture go away.

Don't they look an awful lot like Karim Rashid's..... Butterfly(?) chairs I think they're called....

Honestly, I didn't like them then and I still don't like them now.

I think I'll gift these to a friend...

I couldn't find them on "The Gardener" site...

But they do have a variety of scents plus a gift set on the company's page.

Hanging things on the towel rack during a hot shower is not the look.

I got to work at 11:15 today and by 11:45 I had grabbed my coat and 3 coworkers to go to the GRAND OPENING!

2 hours later (1 hour of shopping and 1 of waiting in lines, to get in and to pay) I returned to my desk with my new purchased calendar, and gifted coloring pencils and tote.

Later, I posted a few comments in AT, and now it's the weekend.

I'd say I've had a productive day!

Apartment Therapy - MUJI Stalker: The Scene Right Now...

I went to the opening today at 12:20 (they opened at 12) to get my free gift (first 500 customers were promised a gift). Once I got in after waiting in line for 25-30 minutes I realized that there was another line wrapping around the whole store just to pay.
I still wanted my gift so I started looking around.
I was surprised at the prices of some items, more expensive that I would have thought. Then I was also surprised that most of the stuff I was picking up was made in China not Japan.
I picked up a simple 2008 poster-style calendar for $4.95 and waited in the second line. Another 30 minutes later, I got my free tote bag and box of colored pencils complete with sharpener.
Though appreciative of my freebies... I almost feel like their stint with MoMA was better publicity for the brand than the Flagship store. Maybe there's something special about not being so easy to get and buying it in the museum context.

Nonetheless- Congrats to MUJI, welcome to New York, lower your prices just a tad (esp. the $27- made in china- gloves that i want), and cant wait to see the holiday collection.

Watachi wa Ashton.
