Picture frames, talk to me. I've got a bunch of prints, a couple standard ISO sizes and a couple of others, none are mega expensive but I don't just want to stick them in a frame from Ikea or something. Where can I get decent (modern) solid wood frames that aren't $$$. Or do I need to go to a frame shop and let them get on with it?

https://www.easyframe.co.uk/ are a good budget option, had a few mat black frames from them. You can select lots of options and quick delivery.

NickMSM wrote: 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.

Thanks so mine is probably more recent, I'll take some pics of mine - but it's probably a bit older than 2000s, could be 90s

Thanks Nick. That’s really helpful. So does the number in the top right indicate the year (it’s a 5 ) so 2005 ? The marble is in really good condition so I didn’t think it was particularly old. Also good to know the lack of plaque isn’t a significant issue (assume it’s come off at some point )
Thanks again

Pretty sure it does - have had several Saarinen tables over the years. Down to just one marble side table now, love them. It may have even left the factory without the plaque - years ago when Poul Kjaerholm furniture was produced by EKC, they often forgot to stamp the frames with their logo Laughing out loud

she does some great stuff, although I'm unconvinced that a live edge table fits in such a formal setting.

I'm sure you can find similar on etsy

I’ve a couple of 1970’s Italian table lamps en route. I’m looking for appropriate good quality shades. Appreciate any recommendations

Edit - pictures of lamps for reference of type / shape

Lovely big space you’ve got there Cool

I’m guessing height difference between threshold and garden removed the option for hardstanding over raised deck?

We’re starting similar work next month but have got exterior porcelain tiles that are pretty much identical to the interior wood flooring, hopefully will give effect of seamless floor running indoors to garden.
