A new little piece from Tom Dixon has made its home in our bedroom. The offcut bench has long been on my wishlist but I (almost) waited too long. In my head I had imagined putting a bench along this wall, something imperfect or vintage or worn looking to hold books and magazines. When I finally decided this was indeed for us I found that no one carried it any more and it was now discontinued. Dang, I thought, this is what I get for dragging my feet and going back and forth about something.
But I didn't stop there. After days of internet searches, emails and even a few phone calls I received a message from a little shop in Texas who told me the TD warehouse had 1 left. ONE!
Looks like it was meant to be after all and we're so glad because it is exactly what we wanted.

  4. I second that question: Is that a humidifier? If yes, it's remarkable. If no, it's remarkable.
