The Hansen Family‘s new Dining Table exists in three models that offer space for 6, 8 or 10 people.
The solid tabletop of the Dining Table has two storage cubbies in which you can hide or present things. The colorful cubbies can be covered with plates that are made of solid wood on one side and slated on the other, so they can be used as trivets. via
Tom Ford and his five commandments that men today should learn from. Behold! The list!
"1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.
2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.
3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they're walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.
4. Don't be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background.
5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach."
OK...I think shorts in a warm and humid city should be allowed, probably paired with sneakers or loafers... as long as they don't go totally backpacker.
In 2001, Karl Lagerfeld shed 90-some pounds by going on a (completely unhealthy, but disconcertingly effective) diet that consisted of stewed vegetables and Diet Coke. His love with the DC hasn't wavered much since then, as he's rumored to have his own private Diet Coke butler, and drink nothing else but the beverage. To pay homage, Lagerfeld has designed another round of limited-edition bottles for Diet Coke that will be sold beginning June 2011. The three new "Love It Light" designs feature Lagerfeld's signature ponytail-ed silhouette and will be sold individually, as well as in prisim-shaped collector's boxes. via

Have you ever wondered what a place looks like free of crowds and noise?
Luke Shepard, a student at The American University of Paris, created a time-lapse video based on over 2,000 images of Paris to show just that. via

When you got a lot of money and a vision, you could have something like this. But hey, if the service is shit then...*shrugs*..the prettiness doesn't mean anything.
This is first-ever, bank concept store for BNP Paribas in Paris, created by Paris-based architect Fabrice Ausset of Zoevox. This far-reaching concept bank is located in the historical building of 2, Place de l’Opéra. The space is chock-full of completely wacky un-bank features, yet it also has a nice retro touch — the honeycombed ceiling, lovely mirrors — that gives it the elegance and respectability that the building’s history warrants and the bank’s business must convey...read more.
