  1. kiki – Have I been lax! You’re right, I do need to add it. I’ve had Arapahoe in my personal bookmarks forever. Don’t know how I forgot it. Thanks for the reminder.


  2. Hi, some of my colleagues mentioned your site so I decided to check it out. Pretty nice I must admit! So that is why I want to touch base with you.

    About what I do, I work for Avalon Communities, which handles apartment rentals around the country from suburban towns like Pleasanton, California to big cities such as Baltimore, Maryland. Since your site is a good fit for what we do, let me know if you would like to work something out.

    I have a team of writers available that can write articles, web pages, blogs, etc… Or if I can do anything else to help you, please feel free to let me know.

  5. Hi,

    if you like the design of Ray and Charles Eames, George Nelson, Arne Vodder, Hans Wegner and a host of other mid-century designers, I recommend Deconet (www.deconet.com), which is an online marketplace for vintage modern design furniture and decorative arts for sale worldwide.

    Deconet also provides information, images and reference prices of thousands of Modern Design objects, designers and makers in a database named Decopedia (www.deconet.com/decopedia)
