The Japanese believe a tree acts as a link between the heavens above and the earth below. These trees can get a second life as furniture which brings that same feeling to our homes. The Kyoto Stool by The Twig Co. ($175) was designed in this spirit. In creating this stool they've paid meticulous attention to details through simplicity, waste-reduction, and joinery. They start each stool from a large piece of lumber which is dissected, hand-planed and shaped into the individual pieces. The stools can be purchased in either solid walnut or cherry, and each is hand-finished in tung oil.
Loads of kids wind up on detention in high school, and The Breakfast Club ($8) looks at 5 students in this very position. Written and directed by John Hughes and having a cast of 80's heavyweights including Emilio Esteves, Judd Nelson. Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ally Sheedy, this 1985 movie has grown in stature over the years and is now a true classic. It is a very clever movie as the 5, who on paper have nothing in common, end up pouring their hearts out to each other and discovering that the perception they all have of each other is nowhere near the truth.
