>> current obsession: leather egg chair

One of my pet peeves is people reading over my shoulder, so it is natural that I'd enjoy the semi-private feel of Arne Jacobsen's iconic Egg Chair ($5,934), which I'm especially fond of in a blond leather upholstery. Jacobsen designed the chair in 1958 for the lobby of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen for exactly that reason—to allow a bit of privacy in a highly public space. Now I just need to find one at a garage sale.

I share that irritation! Happened to me today in the lunchroom at work. I wanted to smack the guy upside his head. -tuke
