Tips & Techniques
Maxwell--Come visit me in SF: I have WiFi and a great city view!
Did you tell him he HAD to take his shoes off? jkThe couch does look comfy.
where can i get that coffee table?! it looks just like your other nelson case study stuff but dwr, modernica, and goggle left me still guessing. i want it!
Who makes that couch?
"where can i get that coffee table?! it looks just like your other nelson case study stuff but dwr, modernica, and goggle left me still guessing. i want it!"That could be a DIY:Have your local hardware store cut you 2 pieces of 1/2" Maple Veneer ply in the size/shape you want. Glue the layers together w/ construction adhesive.Router the edges for the bullnosed effect.Polyurethane.Attach hairpin steel legs (online sources have been posted here numerous times) with 3/4" screws (pre-drill pilot holes so that the wood doesn't split)Voila: Cocktail Table!
ampersand: the coffee table was from Modernica's Case Study line. But it looks like only the square corner table and side arm are currently available. I'll inquire whether they still have the rectangular version.You might want to drop by Modernica anyhow, since they're having their Warehouse Sale on June 7th.(please ignore dupe above; logged in incorrectly as Maxwell)
three things that are hot:1. maxwell2. your apartment!3. that gorgeous kitty
Why do I have the impression he just stepped into lilliput-ville? The feet look awfully scrunched up under that teensy coffee table.
your cat doesn't look too happy to have someone taking up the sofa
It's so funny and great to see Maxwell in one of places that we first saw in the Smallest Coolest contest in - what was it? - 2005? It's like stepping into a movie or through the looking glass.
is that a russian blue? pretty kitty.
i'd need to do a serious bunch of apartment cures before i could feel my place is Maxwell-worthy enough. working on it a little bit at a time - this site has been amazingly helpful
I JUST watched a re-run of Small Space Big Style with your place. :)
I agree, he is hot, even with the bedhead.
But where did you get that couch? Need one just like that in NY for not too much money. Help!
Great idea of cleaning up the room before the photo shoot ;)
Very hot. Cute boys, cool modern furniture, cats- all great decorating techniques.
I ask the same question as pfm; where did you get that couch?I love it! Been searching for a simular for awhile without any results...
I had a couch like that 40 years ago. It was from a store called Foamland on Long Island and cost around $90 as i recall. Back than I considered it my pre-furniture until I could afford the real thing. It was really comfortable but didn't come in great fabric choices. Anyway, i wish I could find it again. I guess I'm in my post-funiture phase.
the furniture and the cat are great, but no one has commented on the san-x doghouse dog! i've got one of those - he has a little bird that sits under his ear. a subtle but great thing about this photo! :)
Oh yes please on the couch source....
"hootie tootie"?Give him a pot of jam wrapped in cloth...
Comfy? He looks like he's sitting about 4 inches too low.
great photo. I notice you have some big speakers in the room. This has always been a design problem for me. I can't get rid of my Polk Monitor 10s even though they're huge and honking and take up a good portion of my living space along with a Velodyne subwoofer (and not to mention the big plasma tv.) The Polks just sound too sweet and it would cost a couple of grand to replace their unbelievable sound. Anyway, I notice that though big your speakers seem less intrusive. Most photos on AT rarely show huge honking media systems--what do music lovers do? Any tips about how to minimize and incorporate big speakers (approx. 27" by 16" sitting on speaker stands) & media systems into your space. My living room slightly resembles yours with a case study couch & other MCM furniture. Please, what do all you music lovers in AT land do so that your place doesn't look like a heavy metal lover student's dorm?
My girl kitty is identical to that one. She'd rather be living in a nice place like your kitty!
