We are about to make an offer for an apartment with large windows, but it is currently missing one room for one of our kids.
We were thinking about creating another room next to the first one but the challenge is that it will have no direct access a Windows / natural light. We were thinking of installing a wall glass panel / industrial glass between the two rooms.

Any thoughts ? If anyone has seen similar setup, please share pictures of it for inspiration.

Doing some decorating of my kitchen and saw this picture on instagram:
https://www.instagram.com/p/CFvXINmJdrJ/

I really like the colour of the floor, kind of a pink/taupe concrete and would look nice with wooden furniture. Even though there is an instagram filter on the image I tried to find some type of flooring (vinyl, lino, tile ANYTHING) in the image's colour.

Here is the best I could find (rose colour):

I just got a sample today and it's a lot more subtle than expected.
Anyone know any other manufacturers that do something like that in any type of flooring suitable for a kitchen? The thing is there are lots of options for what I'm looking for in carpet.

micro cement. I'm using it rather than tadelakt.

That's a good idea ty.
I remember the discussion about concrete worktops on here. Is this a similar kind of thing in that it is very easy to fuck up if I DIY?

I think it takes quite a long time to master. Others will know better than me. Substrate for my en-suite is being prepared right now and its essential that this is perfect. Any flaws/crack points and the finish will be fucked apparently.

Always liked the idea of these but I think in reality, unless you're very sparing with your herb usage, you're just going to have a butchered plant slowly regenerated in the corner of the kitchen most of the time.

Far better off with some kind of greenhouse/cold-frame outside where you can cultivate a proper bush. No Andy's mum.

Does anybody know what year knoll began using the Saarinen signature plaque on the “tulip’” table ?

Not mine, unfortunately. It's a full-size (2m dia) replica for an exhibition.

My Tulip table (white marble) is from the same period, I also have a sticker on it, and it says knoll underneath the base. No plaque
IIRC it is from the late 80's.

The marble/coating starts to show a lot of scratches, I'd love to refinish the polyester coating, wondering how much it would cost/who has the expertise to do it.

Pops, I think your table is c2003 or 05 - can't quite see from the green label. I can't remember when they changed the labels/stamps etc but was relatively recently. An 80s table won't have the silver signature, and I don't think 90s tables would either from memory. That table should have the signature but it isn't a mega issue, they can fall off/people pick them off(!) over time.
