The Top5 most Liked posts this week reviewed by Sally.


1. Sway Rocking Chair by Markus Krauss

I have a certain disdain for couples who are constantly showing public displays of affection. This rocking chair takes it to a whole other level. Is nothing sacred? When I think of rocking chairs I think of three situations: Grandma knitting in a corner while she slowly rocks back and forth on her rocking chair, which would be something Grandpa would have made for her by hand; a young mother breastfeeding her baby in a rocking chair that they picked up at Baby Boomers or something; me sitting in my Thonet rocker with a gin and tonic in hand just sort of staring into the middle distance. What do all of these situations have in common? Solitary! Don't go mucking up a rocking chair by making it for two. That's almost as bad as those wacky designers who "invented" the first-ever two person toilet.


2. A Room in the Glass Globe by Hideyuki Nakayama

This idea is both terrifying and awesome. Which makes it an instant win!


3. Dixon House by Designgroup Stapleton Elliott

Yesterday I was thinking about that statement, "people in glass houses shouldn't thrown stones" or whatever. I sorta got confused because, you know, people who can afford glass houses probably would find something more interesting to throw. Like a Christian Louboutin stiletto or an iPad or bottle of Voss water.


4. Villa J by Marge Arkitekter

I would absolutely love to come home to this. I'm kinda anti stark white walls, so it's nice that this incredible book storage system warms up the place. This is my favorite post of the week.


5. Modular Container Houses by MEKA

The description reads "the ultimate trifecta..." and I'm just going to pass that over because I'm having a good morning and don't want to be too negative or critical because I actually really enjoy this house. I like small. I like LCW chairs (I know, predictable! Shut it). I like decks. I like what I'm assuming is prefabricated. Another instant win.
