“Imaginary” is a table that refers to the mathematical term of “imaginary number.”
What is an imaginary number? according to Wik,
“An imaginary number, in mathematics, is a number in the form bi where b is a real number and i is the square root of minus one, known as the imaginary unit. Imaginary numbers and real numbers may be combined as complex numbers in the form a + bi where a and b are called the “real part” and the “imaginary part” of a + bi. Imaginary numbers can therefore be thought of as complex numbers where the real part is zero. The square of an imaginary number is a negative real number.”

We’re not sure what’s going on over at Urban, but they have stepped it up a bit. The catalogs are tasty and the products are surprising. I know the urban uk carries some high(er) end designs and it now looks like the U.S. site has some nice things as well. For example, this Acacia Wood Twist Stool.
“Hand-carved and completely eco-friendly is this Twist Stool, made from the thick branches of the quick-growing Acacia tree in Thailand – where each branch is cut and carved to order (allowing the tree to continue growing). ”

Reyes sent us over images of a newly completed project he did involving a seriously fresh customization of a japanese flat bed. Here’s what he had to say:
“Recently I undertook another interior design project, this time on a japanese flat bed. The client loved the work so much they purchased a painting from me to complete their bedroom motif. The interior design projects are a great use of my painting abilities, keep an eye out for a new signature line of tables, benches and chairs by yours truly. thanks to Julio,Ann, and Dylan Maddux”
