One hundred years of solitude


Wonderful installation by Su Blackwell. It reminds me of the girl in the Markes book, who disintegrated into a cloud of butterflies.

Architechts Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, who designed the estate also did the Barbican Centre, a wonderful Brutalist example in the heart of London. There are residential flats in the estate:

Looks like a great place to live too! Albeit a little more expensive..

One of the best and an inspiration! RIP

Robin Day chairs




We have a great set of two Robin Day chairs:
They would look amazing as dining chairs on each end of a table!

Erotic art


Found somebody's little collection of carefully mounted postcards of erotic art.
These would look great collaged on the wall between my other prints.
There is a sixth one somewhere.

Revolutionary road


Good taste.
My post today is a little in the style of unhappy hipsters ( http://unhappyhipsters.com/) ...
Unhappy mid century modern.
We should all break the good taste boundaries from time to time.
