Madison Modern Home
That one looks African and handmade, but if you wanted (kind of) a similar look and feel, Lamps Plus has this Driftwood with Glass Top Side Table for $756.91

The end table is to die for. Does anyone know what it is? Is it Henry Moore?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

• 300 words about yourself and why you’d be great at writing home tours for Houzz.• 3 high-resolution, original photographs of home interiors. Or provide a link to some of your photos (can be a link to your Flickr, Picasa, Smugmug, or other online photo account). Photography should be sharp and well-lit. Send to: houzztours @ houzz.comThese are part-time freelance positions. We’re interested in contributors from all over the world.
“The Fairs really were exceptional clients and subsequently have become great friends,” says architect Craig Schultz. “They love to entertain, cook, laugh, and they truly enjoy life. They are committed to an encompassing approach to their lives, and this has led to an appreciation in everything from organics to architecture. They both love to travel, truly appreciate architecture, and living as art.”
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
Here are more shelves with a slender profile and hidden supports; the latter are, according to the architect, comprised of "an upturned leg in the back which is bolted to the wall ... [and] then concealed."
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to High Style for Real Life
Insist on life. Our lives can run the gamut from crazy to quiet, from messy to orderly, from chaotic to serene as well as every shade in between. So make sure your home isn't so minimal that it is thrown off by having the things you love around.
The Good NewsSome heartening results from survey respondents:• 84 percent said they now spend more time at home.• Four out of five said they feel more relaxed in their home.• 42 percent do more entertaining.• 41 percent reported an increase in their level of happiness with their significant other.Compromise, hiring professionals and knowing what you're getting into were all elements of positive experiences, according to the survey. "Remodeling is not easy," wrote one respondent. "There will be painful and frustrating moments, mostly around schedule and budget. ... Believe me, the end results of remodels are worth the wait and sacrifices. But if your relationship is not strong enough to handle it, then considerations should be taken in finding a better home that suits your needs and trading up."More: Find home pros near you | 11 Things to Expect With Your Remodel
3. Make sure you have a clear budget before starting the project. If you're like most of us, there is a limit to how much you can afford to spend on your renovation. Going over budget is par for the course, so expect to spend more than you're planning, but be aware that money issues are one of the greatest sources of tension between a couple. Never spend money that wasn't in the budget without telling your partner. For some couples it works best if one is the appointed regulator of the money issues while the other agrees to abide by the budgetary constraints.4. Expect to give more than you receive. What's wrong with being the one who has the tools and the skills to make a relationship work, and not being the self-centered one? Pat yourself on the back for having the wisdom to make your home renovation project a success, even if it's at the expense of some of your own personal wishes. Years down the road, you'll realize that the blue tile you just had to have but gave in on wouldn't have mattered anyway.

7. Consider the environment and people. What surrounds a subject in a photograph can express a lot about them; it is a kind of dialogue. Think about how the immediate environment or location relates to the person you’re photographing and what kind of background and detail would be most meaningful (or entertaining).
