Great design is like Justice Potter Stewart’s famous definition of pornography: you know it when you see it. And you want it, too: brain scan studies reveal that the sight of an attractive product can trigger the part of the motor cerebellum that governs hand movement. So, instinctively, we reach out for attractive things. Beauty literally moves us.

This site is dedicated to things of beauty - be it art, cars or furniture - that belong to us or to people we know. We describe them in the most elaborate way possible with lots of pictures, movies, and - where possible - links to publications or other websites. We want to make you understand why these products mean so much to us.

The common denominator however is that, apart from being rare and beautiful, everything on here is for sale ! Just because we love it doesn’t mean that we can’t long for other nice things to give a temporary place in our homes. Too much beauty, too little money !
