Start w/ a big one// Need couch - required: sloppy american sunday lounge-able, 16.5 in seat height - everything else is low & visiting parents need seats (excludes most loves off the bat), leather preferred but not dealbreaker, 3 seat or modular, $10k or less (if auction, findable w/o euro shipping) - ohhh baby what we got?

We've got a honey lavender pie situation this year. the top is bruleéd and you finish with salt. tastes like baklava without the nuts.

Hi There! Any thoughts on a twin bed frame that'd feel at home in a home office? I'm looking for alternatives to the Burrow, Thuma, West Elm sameness of social media adds.

Would love some recs on solid office/desk chairs, vintage or not. I remember my dad's - it was something from the late seventies (chrome base and arms with puffy, camel-colored leather cushions) that I can still see in my dreams.

Is there a single piece of Eames/Herman Miller that is worth purchasing retail full price? For example, I love the coconut chair but have never seen it on LA.
