Is furniture porn for architects?

We spent quite some time in the office today looking at furniture websites, ogling Mies coffee tables and Hoffman Kubus sofas. I can spend an entire lunch hour browsing blogs and zeens for the latest in furniture and design. So how does this manifest in my own home? Well, in true architect cliche its the classics that furnish my house. Or copies of classics, as you must be aware that I couldn’t dream of affording the real versions on a Part II wage!

It’s easy to get obsessed with furniture as it distills that perfect combination of practicality and design, form, function and comfort, Architecture in an object.
