Laughing out loud I hadn't but we're going with a kind of elephant theme, hence the paint and the elephant stool, have a few other things too, and the artwork is exactly the same as what we've picked

(http://www.theanimalprintshop.com/Nursery-Art/)

plus we've looked at shelving like that for books too!

I've just ordered a muuto unfold light like this


wanted one of these with a plumen but they are just too much money



also have some ferm stuff on order which is in the brick house post

……few bits turning up, fresh paint (elephants breath) and white wood floor. I've got some muuto lighting coming, an oeuf cot and shit loads of fluffy toys!

I'm buying a few things from the states should anyone be able to help out with shipping, only small art work/prints but the sellers won't mark the items down????

I'm also in need of ideas for an easy chair/nursing chair. I've earmarked the lamino chair but need to find one at an affordable price or something similair??? and looking for a small good round rug, bright primary colour…



Miffy light is on our shopping list too.

God knows, my student halls were right next door to where that is now though. In general the area seems better since than but that is some monstrosity

Looking for a steel desk in the "army" style.

Something like this: http://discoverattic.com/products/details/reconditioned-industrial-steel-desk

Any suggestions? Anything better?

my mum's fiance has one and it's still a fucking pain to cook with

There are 'traditional' looking ranges with gas hobs and proper ovens, rangemaster etc. It's not quite as rustic looking but you use it most every day

I don't like the look of them, but a used Herman Miller Aeron is a good bet. There are loads on the used market so you can probably haggle quite hard. Just make sure it all works properly as parts are fairly dear apparently. They are very comfortable though.

Cheers, The S-series does come with gas hobs or ceramic, so might be a different model. Also normal ovens as far as I can tell. Think it might be a new model.

Anyone got any idea where I can find Boro fabric cheaply? Considering making a wall feature using a piece at some point but I can only find bits on ebay.
