Prices are mad. Handcrafted bespoke pieces from the grads at Haddington International Furniture School cost less than that.

These prices are shocking Shocked

Surely when you have this kind of budget you're getting it from a high-end brand or even bespoke as mentioned. Are they expecting this to sell? Sick!

See more and more collabs in different industries trying to use the hype to sell the lesser quality of brand A for the same price point as premium brand B Puzzled

been living in one room coz my rented apartment is on the market and I wanna be ready to move at short notice, all my other shit is packed up in boxes.

Compact life


Check the Eizo monitor..can emulate 4k and I sit in my Muji recliner and chill to 4K blu rays these days..last watch MENACE II SOCIETY CRITERION 4K..so good…my LD stuff is all packed up, but sometimes I still dig out an LD player and play a disc, the Eizo actually handles analogue video well with the "CRT" color mode installed..

I still have a sad "airfix" workshop/solo RPG set up as well tho..check the 90s Herman Miller desk light…


Right now I'm working on a Cuban underground base using scrap plasticard from other project. Those Commies are dug in deeper than an Alabama tick, time for the Marines to dig those fuckers out! Fuck Commies. When my fucken rich Dad fucken dies, I will own everything, I will be happy. Fuck you NWO.

Best place to buy an EA108 chair 2nd hand?

Lots cheaper to get an ICF one than a Vitra one - much difference in quality?

Nice set up MIL.

I heard about EIZO monitors. Aesthetically they look from the early 00's but they are used by film producers etc. because of the vivid colours. A bit like the Pioneer Kuro of Monitors.

Used to sell loads of Vitra and ICF. Vitra frames are slightly better quality IMO but ICF leather is thicker and more durable. Keep an eye on ebay would be my first port of call, or try an office clearer - they might have ICF. There does need to be a clear difference in value though.

This place is usually well priced - this is all they have currently but stock changes regularly.

Curious what you mean by this exactly? If you're emulating 4k you're just upscaling 1080p, you'd be better with an actual 4k monitor/TV if you're so trying to impress us or something.

yeah its a monster. Nice thick bezel. Only made in Japan monitors you can still get.

Hey dreep, why would you get an expensive automatic watch when you can have a blutooth iwatch that can change its face anytime you want, and make phone calls? We should all just wear iwatches..

There's good reasons my monitor isn't 4K but still costed $3000..

You could have just said you have it because it's made in Japan, since I imagine you don't need it for your data entry job and can't picture you using Photoshop much.

It's a monster with a thick bezel because it's old since you can get $3k 4k Eizo monitors these days..

It'll be outperformed visually by pretty much any modern OLED.
