Philip Galanes was an entertainment lawyer, Chief Operating Officer for a children’s media company, and is now an author, avid furniture collector and consults on interior design projects. After looking at his portfolio, I think he has finally found his calling.

Eames Lounge

Posted on Thu, 26 Apr 2007 by KiM

Charles Eames said his goal for the lounge chair was the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” I can immediately associate one word with this chair – SIGH. I’ve never sat in one of these, real or imitation, and I probably shouldn’t. But I don’t think I could ever spend that much money on a chair. And I don’t think cat nails would go so well with the leather. But I lust after it regardless. After all, cats don’t even like leather right?

What a great idea! If you’re having some stairs constructed why not consider this. Handy and hidden, a great storage idea for linen, winter woollies, books and papers, anything small in fact.

P.S. These amazing stairs have travelled all over the blogosphere in a few short weeks. This is a scanned image from the Vogue Living Australia Before+After Autumn/Winter 2007 issue. The true originator of this staircase, the joinery company is named in the comments. If you’re in Australia and want one of these then google their name and their address and phone number are yours.

Outdoor rooms

Whether it’s a patio or a courtyard, a veranda or a cabana, a balcony or deck, a loggia or just a patch of grass extend your living area outside. Go alfresco with these ideas and reclaim that porch.
