Best of Three: Southwest Small Cool Entries in 2008

Maxwell's shares three of his favourites from last year's 2008 Small Cool entries: This week I wanted to dig back and show off the most popular posts from last year when we were holding our Small Cool 2008 Contest. The ones below were the most popular in terms of pageviews the they were rocked with comments as well. The first and the third became finalists in the contest, while Tanya did not.  Her place was so extreme for some people that it provoked tons of controversy instead. All are amazing. Enjoy!

  This apartment makes me think of the movie "Solaris" kind of space-age-y but ultimately a bit too "cold" for my own tastes. I think the panels around the bed are pretty groovy and I do like the clear/plastic chairs. I'm glad to see an entry that's a departure from the mid-century modern/bright colors design that is the norm for AT (my apartment included). ~ Tara1979
