T and i see eye to eye on nearly everything when it comes to our interior, but there's one thing that annoys the hell out of him:
i like a lot of pretty things 'stylishly clustered together' - he thinks it's clutter.

What are you talking about?! That's a collection! It's Stylish! It's supposed to look like that.
It's not that he doesn't like -for example- Chinese vases, it's just that he likes One Chinese vase - whereas when it comes to pretty things i am of the opinion that if one thing is good, two things is even better (i'm not the most modernist person).
Anyway, we're going to have to find a way to deal with it, and i'm thinking the best solution might be to get a gorgeous display cabinet for me to play in, so the rest of the house is 'clutter'-free (except for the occasional countertop collection, of course, what else are countertops for?).
I found the cabinet above on a Spanish (i guess) blog dedicated to vintage furniture and Love love love it!
Spotted this beauty online recently (here), and traced it back to its original source: PINCH

Also, this one by Dutch Designer Piet Hein Eek (remember this post?):

I honestly can't wait for the Fabrikör to reach the stores.
Not sure about the price yet, but i'm guessing it'll be a lot more affordable than the other cabinets in this blog. Also, it's modest size makes it perfect for smaller-scale living.
No doubt about it: the Ikea Fabrikör will be on my wish-list.
Now, the other thing T and i can't agree on: String wall-systems: i love them - T thinks they would just become overwhelmed with clutter (honestly: he might have a point).
I guess i should choose my battles wisely and just give up on those in favor of a showcase cabinet (for now...).
