Friends seek out your decor advice because you're good at walking the line between Too Little and Just Way Too Much. People often say that your house 'looks so grown up'. You enjoy antiquing.

Eames Wood Lounge
You have one of those active, wholesome lives that makes everyone on Instagram jealous, filled with things like waking up early to go to the dog park, trying new recipes, and watching independent movies at quirky independent theaters. You have had, or would like to have, a dinner party where everyone mixes their own cocktails beforehand, from a perfectly appointed bar cart.

Eames Lounge Chair
You're a bit of an overachiever. You always did really well in school, you're a hard worker, and you always pay your bills on time. You want the best of everything. You have strong opinions about wine.

Wassily Chair
Style is very important to you. You own a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses. Sometimes people ask you if you're from Europe.

Womb Chair
You are kind of lazy, and your ideal Saturday involves staying in bed until at least noon. Although you occasionally forget their birthdays, your friends love you because you are loyal almost to a fault.

Cherner Chair
You radiate a kind of mysterious cool. Your house has stacks of books piled all over the place, but somehow it still looks really good, in a kind of effortlessly bohemian way. You hate dusting.

Louis Ghost Chair
You really loved Sex and the City and aren't afraid to admit it. You don't take decorating, or yourself, too seriously. You get invited to a lot of dinner parties.
