No Assembly Required…

We are just going to file this under “what the hell!” Seriously? Ikea chairs sold at Barneby’s auction for $65,000.00…yes that is I K E A chairs.  I wonder if these chairs referred to as clam chairs…still had their original “allen wrench’s?”

The real story is that the dealer’s mistook the chairs for Danish Architect Philip Archtander originals, thus elevating their true value.  But even though they were a case of mistaken identity…there are pieces highly sought after by collector’s from earlier Ikea Designer creation’s.

Ikea was opened in 1943 and here are some of the pieces that have sold for well over Ikea’s well known economical price point.

Oh That Martha…

Martha

In case your not aware of this yet…but REAL indoor plants are huge again!

I found this little honey of an idea from the craft guru herself Martha Stewart. Though crafting is not one of my desired recreational sport’s…I’m strictly audience participation only.  I do think that this is something that I would actually create.

No paper, glue or glitter is needed (thank you)…in this little humdinger of an actually usable, functional, and not to mention kind of cool art project…go Martha!

Materials:  Tomato cages…in this case copper ones!

Bad Closet Doors to Bad Ass Closet Doors…

Closet Doors

This is such a great idea!  For those that have accordion doors…and can’t update to a barn door or just have no desire. This is such a FABULOUS idea!

Cover the doors in fabric and edge with a nail head trim. Genius!

It’s clean, fresh and modern!

Fabulous…

This is a brand new Phillip Jeffries wallpaper…made with a very thin layer of wood and framed with silver foil! Asolutely stunning in person.  This is a perfect alternative to those who would like an intresting ceiling treatment but do not have the budget for major millwork.

By placing this wallpaper on the ceiling or the walls it instantly elivates the room’s level of sophistacation and presense!
