Just got back from going around to some Columbus stores, peddling my CS catalog. It would really be better if I could carry around the website for people to see, it's better than my catalog. Which begs the question: why don't you redo your catalog? Well, I just might at that! Work in the new styling of the web page. Two stores expressed the most interest: Functional Furnishings in the Short North and Copenhagen Furnishings on Bethel Rd. I'll follow up and see if there's any possibility there. A store in Grandview showed some interest, but didn't take a catalog.
I just got done watching The Royal Tenenbaums, an excellent movie. Though it received mixed reviews, especially from my friends, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The use of design furniture was pervasive throughout. From the leaved lamp in the cluttered private eye's office, to the excellent turn of the century details in the house. Not to mention the brilliant music, I won't go into detail.

Ben Stiller's character had a great apartment, before he moved back into the old house. The composition of the shots was excellent as well. You really had the feeling that every single frame was laid out and well balanced beforehand. Now I'm watching the deleted scenes, McIntosh components; only the best.

My blog is operational on my own website! Here I can discuss my ideas on politics, current events, currency exchange rates, etc.

Or maybe just furniture.

Here are the latest box sketches to come out of the CS studio:

This is another view of the same two boxes, just to give you an idea of what they look like.

What do you think?
