I avoid the holidays in the same way I’ve been avoiding blogging. Like a lot or something.

Worst. Time. Of. Year.

But hey, if you’re in LA this weekend and would like to see me try and avoid all kinds of things in person go ahead and stop by WORK / SHOP this Saturday evening. There will be great folks selling great unique wares that include vintage type small things from me. Yes, I’ve made some things such as lamps or pillows or other such smalls or whatever. So screw the holidays and your loved ones and come by and treat yourself to something nice. Also, that’s the only way I’m going to sell my things. It can only be sold to you for you since I hate the holidays so goddam much.

But I love you guys…and my dogs…and maybe the Boy.

Dec. 8th / 5-9pm
Elephant / 3325 Division St. Los Angeles, CA 90065

Come on by for funs and goods and etcetera.

Hope to see you there. Smile winky face exclamation points.

Obviously late in mentioning this, seeing as the sale ends Saturday, but it appears I offered up some vintage wares in the current One Kings Lane | Design-Blogger Tag Sale. There’s still a few things left. Right?

It’s been a busy week.

Special thanks to Victoria for thinking me and my piles of vintage. Now I’ll have room for more! Hoarder for life!

Are you sensing a theme?

A Barcelona style theme?

Keen insight. Gold stars all around.

Ever since Maya texted me a pic of her fancy craigslist Barcelona find, I’ve been a tad bit covetous. It’s a fine piece of furniture for getting your lazy on. Oh and maybe, I didn’t actually ask to post this pic, so “someones” anonymity is being protected very poorly. Someone whose name starts with a W and ends with a S (SORRY).

Look how cute Mika pup is hanging out under that Barcelona. Design doggy.

Well, while most of the Mies van der Rohe Barcelona line sort of makes me think of American Psycho, I’ve always had a soft spot and deep need to posses the couch in a sassy caramel leather. You know, just to casually go in front of the fireplace or casually sit by a window. No big deal, just complete casual Barcelona style.

Apparently though, according to all those images above, it appears that only the sexiest folks effortlessly work daybed style living into their homes.

Modern. Sexy. Time.

This is going to happen. In Hemet. Sexy time.

Remember when we bought our sofa in a pinch from Alex at Modern Furniture Rental? I know, it was so long ago. But, then we got that awesome womb chair?

Well, good ‘ol Alex emailed me about his quickly approaching 10th custom order that is going down on Oct. 14th and wanted to extend a special offer for fancy Brick House folks.

Here’s one of Alex’s recent custom orders residing at a happy owners home.

I’m dreaming of something more like this…yes…ocher verging on poop.

This is just right.

Here are some of the other fabric options.

Along with the Barcelona daybed/couch, most of the lounge chairs and sofas come in a pretty wide assortment of custom leather and fabric options. I know Maya wants a hot pink womb chair. ADMIT IT.

That bottom right leather sample is calling out to me. Brown town all the way.

Here be the deets (as I’ve overheard the hip kids say)

Alex is taking custom orders for Oct. 14th.
Lead time is 7-8 weeks.
Pick up at no charge or have things delivered to your house for $75.00.
Alex is also able to ship out of state – so non-SoCal peeps make sure to ask for a quote.



**Well, when you order a lounge chair, loveseat or sofa. I kind of wanted to pull a bit of an Oprah there. Not really the same with just capitals and the internet.


Go ahead and contact Alex with any questions or if you want to stop by and view stuff in person. He’s around and happy to show you samples of what they got whenever you like.
