Geek Chic: Furniture For Geeks
Fact & Theory The respository where you'll find definitions, philosophy, and the long answers to questions you didn't even ask yet. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it also gave us one that is both alive and dead until we open the box. 'Heirloom quality' has become a marketing phrase of indefinite meaning. As always, we try to define our terms at Geek Chic, so marketing jibba-jabba doesn't make you feel as if you're in a game of Three-card Monte. Heirloom Quality simply means we have constructed the piece with the materials and joinery techniques that will outlast you.

Black Bathtub Designed for Minimalist Bathrooms by Claudia Danelon and Federico Meroni - Homesthetics - Inspiring ideas for your home. Designed by Claudia Danelon and Federico Meroni, this minimalist black modern bathtub is included in the prestigious designers’ Beyond Collection, surprises most of us with one pure and sublime thing, simplicity. Clear, minimalist and elegant, we consider that most of the bathrooms in which the bathtub has a consecrated place are the ones with nature included , either by landscape or just a bonsai near the sink. Most of us see the bathtub like a block with a hole in it; in this case the hole is situated in bigger block and the shape is perfectly defined just by the bathtub itself. Also the simple clear and smooth shape is defined by a delicate line that contrasts with the tough aspects and roughness of the monolith block. Our suggestion to complete the interior with an amazing big window ,nature view or just some kind of vegetation inside, is based on the idea of attaching to the delicate line something organic which can either complete or contrast the whole design.

Gaming with Kids: From D&D to Fiasco It’s official, 4E D&D is a dead at the after-school gaming club. At the moment the students are really grooving on playing Fiasco – we’ve played three weeks in a row and I’ve had new kids showing up wanting to play, or just watch, based on word of mouth. That’s really odd (and cool) to me since having run the club for the past eight years that’s not something I’ve experienced. Home Page - - Where any time spent playing games is time well spent!
