We had a thread about Gaudi but I can't seem to bring it up in Search. Last night, I saw a picture of a very different dressing table. He did others also but this is the best picture I could find. Look at the legs! All tangled up.

I like the Avinguda Diagonal. Almost expect it to be a bridge. Maybe because there are two ways to look at it.

The Batllo Bench is nice if you want to enjoy the park without acknowledging your neighbor. :-)

He certainly had a magnificently broad range of creative ideas, didn't he? Something to suit everyone's tastes. His work grows on you.

Thanks for sharing.

The desk is so odd and quirky, but after looking at for a bit - it grows on you (well at least me).

I think all of his work - architecture, furniture , whatever, grows on you. At first it just turned me off. But the more I look at it the more interesting it becomes. It talks to me. I like art that talks to me - something I never was able to get across to a sales person who was helping me find pictures for my walls.

I love art that makes me laugh, and then appreciate it. How he got any of those approved to be built is a wonder to me. He must have had an overwhelming personality able to sway most people to accomplish those buildings.
