My eyes are deceiving me . . . I think.

Is that what I think it is? A fire-pit in the living room . . . Okay I know I an no longer hip for 2 reasons; #1. I don’t live on the East Coast, preferably New York, and #2. I just turned 50. But a fire-pit in the living room, something rather uncommon in my parts and it’s not just any old fire-pit, it’s a rolling fire-pit.
Plus I’m not quite sure what’s going on with the twigs and the bamboo back by the wall. Is it supposed to be rustic Japanese with a dash of peacock?

The entire story is on the NY Times. What is this all about? The collection of stuff, or a unique design style?

One thing that comes to mind looking at this trend, if work gets slow outside for me it appears that I now have another venue working indoors . . . in New York.

    Only if you’re sure that you’re not allergic to vasefuls of GIANT black and white feathers! lol.

    Peacock . . .maybe? Ostrich? Hell I don’t know . . . it looks like the Serengeti plains meets suburban backyard.

    Frankly I think it looks bad (awful).
