  • ^ I was tempted by that offer but the new iPhone 5 and several awesome new videos games have caught my wallets attention righ now

  • http://www.juddfoundation.org/CustomCont­entRetrieve.aspx?ID=2200305

    if only the spoor wallet was fat enough...

    However, such things are not too hard to build, making some some Rietveld stuff at present which will save a few hundred on buying - still way more more than the usual Ikea dross though : )

  • I saw an old doctors solid oak desk on gumtree the other day, it was lovely. Needed a sand down and re coat but I had no idea how on earth I'd get that home.

  • Just managed to get an Eames replica lounger through Groupon. First time I've used the site.


    how much and is the site easy to use?

  • had a wander round heals the other day and sat in the Eames chair they had out, so nice and comfy and it also looks amazing, would to be able to get one.

  • also i was thinking of doing a furniture design course, but having no back ground in design at all was wondering if there is a intro course, looked on hot courses all i could find where St martins and chelsea courses...prob a little to advanced for me

  • Rg 37,

    at risk of being accused of spam - dons hard hat...

    I teach a basic intro to wood and metal design at City Lit, it's really aimed at beginners but all sorts of folk come along.
    will be November, friday evenings.
    could be a good start for you, PM me if you like, I am also up for project suggestion of a cycle nature, had a guy make a work stand and I was thinking porter type rack could be doable.

  • pm'd
    :)

    I bought it through Groupon - £350, £20 for postage. Should be here in six weeks. Was straight forward, but obviously can't comment on quality or delivery yet.

    That sounds cool. I'd be interested, but I work funny shifts, which rules that sort of thing out.

    Hi sparky, yeah doing courses and working can be a real time conflict, which is a shame because I keep meeting people who really want to make all kinds of objects for themselves. But you never know, I got this one going because folks asked...
    Looks like you got a fantastic deal on the Eames, very impressed, I don't know about groupon but you can easily pay a couple of grand for these classic designs.

    I'd seen replicas for around £800 before and ummed and ahhed. I think £350 is a great deal. Probably shouldn't be spending that sort of money at the moment, but it'll hopefully be keeping my arse comfortable for decades to come...

    How long does your course last, and when does it start? I tend to do shift patterns that last 2-3 months, so you never know...

  • Revolting lol

    £800 is a lot for me, but is still a fraction of the Hermann Miller Eames and they hold the licence.
    Would put me in a bike, guitar, chair loop I would doubtless remain locked into.

    That course I mentioned is 6 friday evenings Nov -Dec.

    As for the arse seat or maybe a self-loveseat, I can only concur with mr precise...eeuw

  • £800 is a lot for me, too. So is £350, but I think I'll spend at least 350 hours sitting in it snoozing, so it's good value. I too have spent disposable income on bikes, guitars and - now - chairs, for a long time. Still, it's better than fags, booze or petrol...

  • I see sad eyes, two nostrils, and a philtrum. No?

  • try Lotts Road auction - they do modern furniture downstairs - lots of old shop stock and so on the last time I went

  • Good thread. I'm partial to a chaise lounge, but certain chairs also take my fancy. Such as this Ligne Roset Flax chair. I love the style, and, well everything about it. Except the price. I could probably afford it in a few years, if I started saving a few years ago. Oh well....

  • I got a replica Le Corbusier.


    Feels too small for my gaijin frame.

    If I could get the lounger of my choice it would be from that place on St Thomas Street near Bermondsey street. It's a beautifully hand made wooden piece that's so very comfy and is beatifully made. Worth checking out.

  • Beautiful chair Sparky. I'm slowly getting my office together at home and I'd love something like this in there, but we do need to buy a new sofa at home so that'll probably take priority.

    My thing is though with furniture I love second hand stuff. I'd rather something with life in it over a brand new item.

  • At the last agency I worked in October I was using this chair

    Herman Miller - SAYL

    want.
