£1,500 is a fair price for the table, but shipping isn't going to be cheap. Talking of Wegner, some black Wishbones would look excellent with that table you posted.

has anyone here sanded wooden floors and left them unfinished?
i've got wooden floor coated with a yellow-ish lacquer. the colour is real saturated and i'd like to make them as neutral as possible. changing the floor isnt an option, and all the finishes ive seen are too loud. anyone know what i'd need for the least obvious coat after sanding?

Bleaching them can look cool but if you want something more neutral there's stuff like Osmo Polyx Oil Raw, which will probably leave them the most natural looking.
If you leave them unfinished, you're more susceptible to water stains, irregular wear spots etc. If the boards are pine, they'll probably yellow a bit over time. Oak boards on the other hand will tend to go a nice silvery colour.
Suck your Mum is probably the man to speak to on this

Anyone recommend a good tile shop/showroom? Don't wanna go budget like Topps…want something colourful and out of the ordinary

Not entirely ontopic maybe, but I'm looking for an office chair. I'm tired of my fake leather chair leaving tiny parts everywhere. Problem is I can't seem find a middle ground between design and budget. Everything is either ugly (the common office chair) or costs €500+. Looking at rip off Eames or Herman Miller Aerons from a foreclosure auction site now. Any other ideas?

Can't find what I'm looking for online: anyone know a good resource where I can find inspiration for building a good value modern family house, particularly in urban locations. Considering doing this in north London. Not looking for £1m+ builds - looking for ones that might be small - e.g. built on land previously used for garages/gardens, but use space really well.
