What is your favorite piece of furniture? I know a lot of you are into architecture, design, and just well-made goods in general. So, favorite piece of furniture should be interesting! Either a particular style, or a specific item. Go!

I’m a huge fan of the le corbusier lc2/lc3 lounge chairs and sofas (lc3 lounge chair reproduction above). Surprisingly very comfortable, and a lot less common than, say, an Eames lounge chair.

Also, tanker desks. I like a big, heavy desk that can take a beating. I’ve got a few Craigslist tanker desks bookmarked for later.... Also, you can find these all day for dirt cheap. Or pay a hipster at a boutique furniture shop multiple thousands for a “hand-worked” vintage piece if you hate money. Just check Craigslist.

LLast but definitely not least... Anything with rivets and/or some serious welding work. Here are two Instagram Craftsman I follow, one of whom is local.

And the welder (who worked at 425 motorsports for years!)

Before wax and final stain
After. Saw these benches in person. They are beautiful
