    Here's a chartreuse desk chair from cb2 that is also available in white. http://www.cb2.com/office-furniture/office/bubble-chartreuse-leather-office-chair/f6516

    Hey...thanks for the looking out! :) I have seen that chair and excited to see it on sale. The main reason I liked the West Elm one was because it did not have arms. I live in a very small place and my desk is literally right inside my bedroom door where there is a narrow space. The chair I have now with the arms doesn't fit underneath the desk if I have it at the right height. But...maybe the chair would still look finished if I just didn't add the arms on this one since it looks like they attach from underneath. I really like the chartreuse color too! :) Thanks again...much appreciated. I wish there was a CB2 here in Charlotte, NC where I am so I could try it out for comfort. We do have a West Elm and Crate & Barrel :)

    I designed the shape and then had them custom cut from a local store in SF called Tap Plastics.

    Hi Cindy,

    I had a professional photographer take the pet portraits. I then sandwiched the photos between two large sheets of plexiglas and screwed them together with metal bolts.

Supersize it. "It’s important to me to show each homeowner’s personality in an interior," says designer Kimball Starr. "For this client, his cats are his family, so I wanted to honor that by giving them prominence. I had their portraits photographed and supersized and then displayed their faces where he can enjoy them every day."

I like the idea of photos, etc under desk glass. Is there an easy way to do this so Anya can put in new photos?

3. Fogli in plexiglassIl plexiglass può essere l’ideale per esaltare un’opera a colori: con la sua lucentezza dà immediatamente una finitura “gloss”. Facilmente reperibile, lo potete trovare tagliato su misura nei negozi di fai da te, leggero, meno delicato del vetro, pratico e moderno può aiutarvi a creare una parete ricca e piacevole dove l’arte diventa protagonista. Una volta scelta forma e misura inserite all’interno dei due supporti l’opera d’arte et voilà pronto un sandwich creativo! Consigliato a chi non ama le cornici o non sa decidersi su che stile o colore dovrebbero avere.
