some great posts in this thread, def gonna look back further. Here are some of the things I bought the last year, nothing too special, but I love how it fits in my interior :D Will be copping some more expensive art soon hopefully

some framed posters from a psychiatric institution/museum in belgium (I work in psychiatry). Gonna be at the museum tomorrow, might cop some other posters.

@gewoonBB THANK you for sharing!
IT's ALL Lovely.
May I ask how much was the chair and from where (If there's more)
I had a similar set of brown German furniture very round and comfy especially the love seat
But all foam so REALLY light weight to lift roll or move.
your piece looks heavier. Is it?
Your posters, hand paints, and cows would all be to our taste too,
had we not already exhausted our space. :rock:

from a dutch website (I'm dutch), I got it cheaper from someone I knew though, but they go for 300eu now > http://www.fundesign.nl/Shop/vanHarte/f ... zwart.aspx
This one is pretty heavy yeah, it has a metal ring around the bottom so it can swivel and I think 6 small metal legs.

Went to the psychiatry museum last weekend, got two more posters to frame and hang with the others.

^^Nice I have always wanted a Faile for the collection.

I need to grab some pics, but I picked up the ToyCon UK Konatsu print as well as an original piece too, it was a pleasure to see her work in person yesterday.

Great pickup! Love the lack of border with the deckled edges. Such a great print. Going with a float frame?

Most definitely a floater. Still debating on color of mat background, thinking of a very very light grey, or just the usual white.

Now you're talkin'. Be sure to post a picture when it's all framed up!

Finally framed. Floating, museum glass, and grey mat. Stunning in person. For now it's in the living room, but it does look much better in the bedroom due to the navy blue walls, make the colors pop more.

PS- did not look good at all with a white mat.
