Hi, my name is Amy and I'm a designaholic.

"So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering." Brenda Ueland


For the rest of us

Do you ever read those home magazines, wondering where could the homeowners have possibly found all of those wonderful pieces of furniture, lamps, wall art, consoles, etc, etc? How do these people do it? Where do they find the time? The resources? The MONEY?? Especially, when inevitably, those beautifully decorated homages to mid-century pieces of Eames and the like are all owned by "fledgling" fashion designers or photographers? Right, because as a "fledgling" graphic designer my largest homage is to the great world of Ikea. Well, I have found a resource, which I hesitate to put out there, but believe it could possibly help the rest of us with the hope of one day having our own collection of wonderful home pieces. It's called 1stdibs.com and I've become an addict. I'm searching for that perfect piece, particularly a couch, and this little website gives you access to tons of antique collectors, and their collections, around the country. Ahh, just in time for the Holidays!

I'm going to try out that website, since furniture shopping in actual local stores leaves so much to be desired for anything unique, solid, and individual.
Thanks for the tip!
