This meal is a nice treat, especially when the weather cools down. It really is easy to make, too - take it from one who knows.

seriously? anti-gravity? are we just going to gloss this over like it's not unusual to mention it? I'm thinking nobody should give a damn what his neighbors think if he's actually rigged that together (somehow).

Come on now -- Don't be afraid of color. I'm brainstorming a DIY backpainted glass backsplash right now. If you decide you hate the color, just scrape and reapply!

It's tongue-in-cheek, guys! Brilliant idea. I love it. Well done.

Louisville is a great town and there's more than enough design activity there to warrant attention. I've enjoyed every minute I've spent there. I know there are some fantastic apartments to be had - and great people - my friend Emily, who works at the 21C, natch, has a place that would make your head spin.

knock yourself out. While you're at it, why don't you drill a few more holes, bend a long steel tube, and set it on a block of marble? 100 bucks, max. That Castiglioni was a hack.

This is a Tech Lighting 'Powell Street' pendant lamp. It's commercially available. This may not be a bad deal (internet prices appear to be about $350) but it's not a custom piece, and it's certainly not a collector's item. Just a heads up.

This is a cool idea, but I'd like to see it in a more ordered, symmetrical pattern around the mirror. Using the rope light is interesting enough a concept that you don't have to go tell another story with the random squiggles. I think it would look like a really high-end fixture/installation with your molding-framed mirror. But, it wouldn't be as good at distributing light through the whole room.

I think it's a pretty slick reinterpretation. I'm partial to black on black, too. Tom Dixon usually resonates with me, though. What did Picasso say about great artists?

certainly looks 80s, but I have a feeling it's a trick!

This house is on my street. I like to point it out to people who aren't familiar with the area, and if I'm circling for parking sometimes it's a little pick-me-up. I think it's a little ridiculous.

I'm interested to hear what people have to say about this piece, too. I love the look; in fact, considered buying it, but ended up going with a Gus (with tufted seating surface) because I figured the Couchoid would develop ass-prints over time.

In Rogers Park, we've got plenty of the 'gritty little' character-giving places (and character-building, some of 'em), but it's rough not having a grocery store too close. I end up driving to Evanston more often than not these days. Also: how about a record store? Or some more restaurants up to the standard of the Morseland maybe? I must have eaten there 20 times this year.

The presence of the seam would suggest to me the halves were vacuum-formed and then ultrasonically welded together, which is just about the cheapest way it could have been done. Someone's making a healthy margin on this one...

yeesh! greer, you've given them too much credit. That thing wasn't designed by a designer, take my word for it. Looks like it was cobbled together from whatever parts they had lying around. That hurts me deeply.

at this very moment I'm wearing a pair of Sennheiser headphones - I use a rubber band. Those Germans are fond of long cords, I guess.

nice looking piece, especially for the price point, but you may want to move it off of the concrete so it doesn't make horrible crunching and scraping noises (the 'skid pad' appears to be made of steel), and so you don't cut your fingers off if you fall asleep with your hand dangling off and your hammock buddy gets up. Hmmmm.
