Along the lines of this
: I'm decorating my first home (hooray!) and I need to find some items to make it ... well ... home
My tastes lean toward the modern, but not in the overly precious, plastique
, artificial style that term may imply. My furniture thus far is mostly lighter woods like birch, no dark stains, clean lines, efficient but comfortable. I like pretentiousness in my art but practicality (and durability) in my furniture.
I feel like I've scoured the housewares universe already, but what places do you recommend around here for good browsing, from the sensible to the outrageous?
Places I've already hit, incidentally: Ikea, Crate, Pottery Barn, Fresh Eggs, Bowl & Board, Bliss, In Home, the major malls, and a few billion tiny places in the South End. I'm avoiding Jordan's because I've never found much there to my liking, and I don't have a billion dollars to go to the Boston Design Center.
Thoughts, o design denizens of the Bay State?
