can anyone identify the bedspread from this post? it's shown in the photo on the last row, three in from the right, with the bright colored stripes.

also a perhaps silly question, though whenver i google it i can never seem to figure it out. where does one buy a plain duvet? or is a duvet just a plain white comforter? whenver i google duvets all i find is covers, never just plain duvets. suggestions on where to get a nice plain one?

so i have a 'fogless' mirror from target that is no longer fogless. this is actually my second one and i'm depressed at the thought of purchasing a third. how do you keep these mirrors fog free? help!

yeah, i've seen that i just don't like how wide the legs look? this is my dream desk: http://hivemodern.com/products/?view=sub_product&sid=1193 and i feel like this is getting closer to it, but I still feel like i'm being ripped off for $450!

i keep thinking my ac is broken, but i really think it is just that hot.

hm, i will pop by my local hardware store and ask. hoping it comes in white to match my door, but i don't want any of my sweet sweet conditioned air escaping my room.

so my room like most new yorkers is probably becoming unbearably hot. i think that the cracks between door and the frame are a bit wider than they should be (there was an issue with the door not even fitting the frame and the landlord haphazardly trimmed the door down). is there a foam of some sort i can get to fill in the cracks and still allow the door to close easily?

the modernica showroom in nyc is closed now, right?

i'm interested in this chair and wondering how it compares to the bertoia side chair...


looking for something with a small footprint for my desk after being totally inspired by that gorgeous photo: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/uimages/chicago/4-1-08lightweightfurniture.jpg

i'm not going to be sitting at this for hours on end, but i don't want to be sitting in somethign super uncomfortable either.

I'm fixing up my bathroom and need help finding two things, a shower clock/timer (if it had a built in radio or something too that would be nice, but not necessary) and a GOOD fogless mirror. i have bought two cheap ones from target that work fine for like 6 months and then begin to fog up.

lightenup - thanks for the info. we're in a rental (charming east village one at that). our landlord is ok, but i feel like they don't deal with 'little' stuff. probably not worth it to spend couple hundred to fix it up, but would consider DIY. i'll stop by a hardware store and see if they can suggest something. figured i'd hit up AT first :)

so it appears that a layer of our tub is peeling off. i have no idea how to describe it other than that. it is revealing the layer beneath which is rusting up... how do we replace the 'skin'?!

What color would you say the exterior of the Sweeney Building in Dumbo is?

For reference this was the best photo I could find online:
