Ok so the lamps and chairs I was looking at...





Now Im not saying these are the FIERCEST of all lamps or anything by any means. I was just surprised that a few people wrote me wanting to know what I was looking at. These were ones I was considering for my place but all of them too much in too many ways. There are kazillions of lamps and chairs out there that are cool but I just dont want dudes to walk into my house and have my FAGGOT CHAIR kick them in the BALLS and be a total BONER KILL when they walk in the door so for my home I have to tone it down. Some day when I have enough money to have plenty of rooms to decorate or a bar or both I will have plenty of room for HIGH FAGGOTRY in HOME FURNISHINGS but now I just want a TOUCH of it, a gesture to the notion, but not full blown Phyllis Diller incarnated as a chaise lounge.
The Moooi line of design is pretty fucking fierce and I liked a lot of their stuff, I tend to like Dutch stuff in home furnishings. I also like a lot of the Italian stuff surprisingly but as I said I just dont wanna have my chair scream "HEY GURL!!" when I walk in the door with some dude.
The black chairs are actually burnt and then coated in resin to preserve them. I thought that was kinda neat. I also like the "blown away" vase.. the pod desk chair was neat too but Id never fit in it I know...
The lamp I ended up choosing was just tasteful and boring so I wont bother showing it.

Love the chairs...
I still think you can throw a bit of Diller anywhere and get away with it, come on with your bod and look you could pull off loads of faggy stuff

FYI - I thought it would be too personal to ask what you were looking for in home furnishings. I do like the burnt chairs - they are quite unique. I had a friend who did the Addams Family theme in her home. In other words, she had furniture in the same Victorian style upolstered with animal skins, plus she had antlers on the wall, and stuffed birds, such as you have. But it was all very tastefully done. What you are trying to acheive reminds me of her place. I think you should go ahead with your high faggotry and just bring your dates home to a totally dark apartment so that they can't see your decor. Stumble around undressing them as you get to your boudoir. Get my drift??? No limits!!!

I'm no interior designer (because I'm sorta straight!?) but I have read that one item in the room can stand out and set the tone. So go for something fun and expressive that says something about you. Like, DUH, doesn't everything you do?! But anyway, you get my drift. It's all fun and gives you a feeling of control over your environment.

And I want to see the boring tasteful lamp you bought anyway.

Those chairs are deadly !!
...and you can totally pull those off.

I'd say vases would be the delicate area that you might rethink if you're concerned about not appearing butched-out enough.

Ultimately, err on the side of comfort.

the black upholstered chairs are stunning! Maybe there's a way to get one down to the studio for the next shoot..
