Yesterday, we went to van Dijk & Ko and Neef Louis in search for a tv-cabinet. We didn’t find one, but that didn’t matter, because it’s always nice to wander around the big halls with old (design) furniture. Hidde and Jens had a great time playing with old objects of which even I couldn’t always tell the function. The iron white chair, was the one thing I suddenly felt I had been searching for all of my life. Luckily Jeroen turned out to be in desperate need of it as well. Unfortunatelly it turned out to be a 1950s RUSSELL WOODARD collecters item, price: €650,-. I guess that is a real bargain.. but I decided to just take a picture to put on my blog instead.

Afterwards we wandered a little through Amsterdam North. It´s the part of Amsterdam known for not having the most beautiful neighbourhood. But it’s really upcoming and if you look a little bit further it has real nice area’s: new designed apartments and nice restaurants with superb views on the water. A mixture of new and old industrial architecture. I like the roughness of this area and yet you can feel the energy of the city nearby.
