Can anyone point me at some kind of reasonably nice office desk chair (style something like a Herman Miller / Aeron) that is mounted on a track on the floor, so that it can slide only 3ft to 4ft in a straight line? [more inside]

Recommendations for camper van

We are considering getting a camper van in the UK. We want to keep our son outdoors and active but are limited by needing to get him home each day for nebuliser treatments which require a standard mains plug. It would be great if we could stay out for the entire day or stay overnight for a weekend. Requirements within... [more inside]

How do I get things delivered? (France edition)

I need to order some art supplies from this place and have them delivered to my residency outside of Toulouse. The problem is, they don't give me the option to add in my US billing address; they only offer France and Morocco. Any ideas about how I can get around this? Or perhaps there is another art supply store I could order from that acknowledges foreign billing addresses?

Looking for a standing-height table appropriate for a retail setting.

I have been looking for a standing height table that would be appropriate in a retail setting and have had no luck finding one. This may likely be due to me using incorrect search terms. It needs to be tall enough that someone can stand at it and comfortably fill out about a page (5 min) of paperwork. The "deck" needs to be of a size that approximately 2-4 people can gather round it (but not too large as it won't be used for much beyond some short paperwork. We don't want it too look too "dining-ey'. I'm picturing something along what I imagine you find in something like a cell phone store perhaps, where people stand to sign a contract. Cost is certainly a consideration, we would like to keep it below $150 a unit.

Modern folding outdoor table/chair set?

I'm looking for a modern or contemporary set of outdoor table + two chairs that would fit a small balcony, and which could all be folded up for storage. My ideal choice would be the Mia by emu, which comes in the colours I want (ideally, black), but at $940 + shipping from Europe it's about twice my budget. Plus, while the table folds flat, the chairs don't. Another, cheaper choice is the Pocket by Jan Kurtz, which is only $95 per chair plus shipping from Europe, but there's no table, and I would have a hard or impossible time finding one that matched the design. I'm out of options. I don't want a nostalgic bistro table and I don't want some cheap plastic stuff. My budget is around $400-500.

How do I find a good tattoo shop?

I'm sure looking at a portfolio is one way, but beyond that, what are some good things to look into? Word of mouth? Online reviews? I haven't gotten one since I was eighteen, which is many a moon ago. I'm in Milwaukee, if that is relevant. Thanks!

Comfy socks to gift a friend after her foot surgery?

Has anyone had a pair of socks that were downright therapeutically cozy? Possibly engineered to be worn without shoes, exclusively for cozy time? I've got a friend who's getting out of foot surgery next month, and I'd like to send her socks that surround her feet in luxuriousness. I'm open to other little mailable foot comfort products too.

Best way to care for a care with a faded red body and BRIGHT red bumpers

I inherited a red Honda Fit (2007) that has taken a bit of a beating from the sun. The red color has faded to a pinkish shade, except on the bumpers which are bright red (since they were replaced under a recall). The top coat of the body is mostly intact except for a few spots. What's the best way to take care of the car from a pragmatic and aesthetic point of view? [more inside]
