not much time to post this week, so maison21 is going to have to cheat a bit and pull images from a recent magazine article- he figures that since 98% of the design blog community seems to be women, so y'all might not have seen the below pics in the current issue of men's vogue. m21 supposes that maybe some of you girls might have glimpsed them, as the issue had dr. mcdreamy on the cover and for some unknown reason, dr. mcdreamy seems to be popular with the ladeeez. well, maybe that should be two unknown reasons- the hair and the eyes (or is that three unknown reasons?). oh, alright, already, maison21 knows perfectly well why mcdreamy is popular with the ladeeez but he swears he didn't buy the issue just because of the cover (now if it was mcsteamy on the cover, that would be a whole different story- m21 would admit to buying a magazine with him on the cover, because that sh*t is fine).
anyway, besides the eye candy cover, the art and design section of men's vogue featured these fabulous, limited edition art furniture pieces designed by architecture/design firm, aranda/lasch, exhibited at the johnson trading gallery in nyc. the pieces were inspired by "quasicrystal geometries"- whatever the heck that means- and though the underlying scientific principles may make maison21's oh-so-unscientific head hurt, the results make m21's oh-so-sensitive eyes very happy. the quasi table is "made of 3,700 individual blocks of solid walnut cut in only two different shapes but assembled in a complex pattern"- m21 would trade both mcdreamy and mcsteamy, for one of the limited edition of 6 tables (m21 will always prefer pretty furniture to pretty men- maybe that explains why we're eternally single, yet have 4 credenzas and 8 chandeliers out in our garage).
read all about about the smart & hip people behind the pretty furniture here in men's vogue, and let us know what you think (about the art, or mcdreamy or mcsteamy, or whatever)!
