It's been a bit overcast and cold-ish in LA these past few days. Very grey and blah, which inspired us to feature this lovely bright orange Danish modern lounge chair today. The oak frame and the upholstery are in good condition.
We think Pottery Barn's Shayne Dining table would be a great addition for small space dwellers. The table comes complete with a traditional style, a place for storage baskets underneath and an option to fold the 2 side leaves up or down for more or less space - perfect for those of us that need pieces of furniture that function when we are using them and store away when we are done.

Hello AT,I know this is perhaps outside of the realm of apartment living but as this is LA, I was hoping somebody could offer advice. We have a great Anthony Pool in the backyard, built in the sixties. Previous owners let it slide into disrepair. Do you know of a great pool renovator or pool restoration company or even just a good pool remodel company? We're throwing this to all you AT:LA readers- Can any pool owners out there offer any advice?
It's color month at Ohdeedoh and it's got me thinking about a color I'm starting to see crop up more and more in the home. Admittedly, it's a hard color to use in large amounts. The room pictured above is from the home of designer David Kaihoi in New York City's East Village. If purple walls, windows, trim, upholstery and textiles is too much for you, you can just dabble in a little purple. Stokke introduced a purple Tripp Trapp highchair last month which is a perfect opportunity for using a small amount of purple in your home.
We think that the simple living movement has lost it's voice, and what began in the late 90's as an earnest attempt to extricate lives from an overly complex and consumption oriented culture, has dwindled to a exist only as a national magazine title with the biggest advertising revenue of any shelter mag around. It's the voice that says you don't need so many things to live comfortably. It's a voice that urges you to choose quality over quantity. It's a voice that says don't be distracted by all the meaningless jabber and media nonsense that is out there. It's a voice that says having a balanced homelife is essential. It's a voice that says be in control of your life and avoid entanglements, people or debt that will rob you of that position. It's a voice that says richness comes from the relationships that you create, and these cannot be purchased. We're working on this voice ourselves, and we'd like to be surrounded by more of them.
Hi AT:SF, Enclosed is a picture of our new kitchen/living room combo. We love the new cabinets, and are in a quandary, as we like the minimalist look and really don't want to put pulls on the doors or drawers. Opening everything without pulls is getting to be a pain, and probably not good for the veneer.... ...So, I'm wondering if you or any of your readers might know of something we could get that would allow the doors and drawers to open easily without outside hardware?
Hello AT,. I have a tap water purifer for my kitchen sink, and a shower head filter for my shower. Do you know of anything similar for the bathroom sink? i have a feeling the unclean water is what's causing my face to break out. We wonder how much people worry about their water in this town. Aside from filtering it to drink, we generally think it's pretty darn good. Tap mounted water filters are made to fit on to almost any faucet, including bathroom faucets. We believe that each tap mount even comes with special fittings to make sure that they suit multiple types of faucets. The real problem is that they are BIG. We have found listings for a few mini-tap filters - or travel filters, which we include below. The range is not great here and sink top models may be your best bet.

'Shallow Hide-away. For those that want a relatively inexpensive way to both mount and hide a flatscreen TV, the BJORNHOLMEN cabinet from IKEA does both while measuring just under 16' in depth and maintaining a low price.... The BJORNHOLMEN has a reinforced back panel for mounting a flat screen TV, so there is no need to drill holes in the wall and cords can be hidden at the back. In addition to drawers with room for storage, the doors on top fold to save space when they're not hiding your TV. While IKEA has many products to mount a flatscreen TV, this is one of the few that does not require the furniture to be attached to the wall or braced between the floor and ceiling. Available in white foiled fiberboard with a solid birch base for $499 from IKEA. 'Width: 51 1/8'.
