Lovely Berlin furnishings for sale
As we head to San Francisco, we’re reluctantly parting with many of our lovely furnishings. We acquired all of them just in the past few months, either brand new from IKEA, from the nearby flea market, or from an illustrious array of fashionable Berliners.
Wouldn’t you like to give them a new home?
This bold red couch has been sat upon by some of the best people ever. Surely that tradition will continue if you make it your own. It also folds out into a bed, in case your guests decide to stay, and makes wintery afternoons all the brighter. What more could you ask for, really? SOLD
This vintage dining table has adjustable legs (!!) and an extra leaf that disappears within by means of a delightful crank. This table is spoken for, but lucky for you, the chairs—having supported many a happy diner—are still available. SOLD
Vintage chair, purchased at the Arkonaplatz flea market, SOLD
Ample coffee table. You’ll want to style it with some very enormous, very obscure art books, I’d say. Also has a scratch—probably left by brawling poets—which gives it just the character you were looking for. 40€
Two black chairs, sturdy and well-loved, SOLD
The perfect table on which to place your compact typewriter, forgo all other distractions, and compose a novel or two. Table and chair, 20€
Stenstorp kitchen cart, Ikea, SOLD
All items are for pick-up only in Prenzlauer berg. If you need some help, I can highly recommend this excellent mover who lugged all of it in here with perfect ease just a few months ago.
If you’d like to make these things your own, drop me a quick note very soon.
Here, beneath that immense bleached sky, is where we run out of continent.
Today in pictures: Moving edition
So much has happened in the past few weeks that I haven’t yet found words for all of it. In lieu of that, how about some pictures?
This is how I feel about German. (It’s possible I learned more Swedish than German in my six months here, but that’s not saying much.)
This is how I feel about Berlin. (Pretty sure it was love at first pretzel.)
This is how I feel about transatlantic flights. (6 of those suckers in 7 months! Not recommended!)
This is what I look like when forms require my current mailing address. (What I’d like to write: I LIVE ON THE INTERWEBZ RIGHT NOW THX.)
This is the current state of my belongings. (Currently distributed among approximately three cities and two countries.)
This is the current state of my brain. (Currently distributed among approximately three cities and two countries.)
This is how I feel about my new colleagues at Dropbox.
This is pretty much all I know about San Francisco. (Tell me your favorite coffee shop/bookstore/everything?)
1. I moved from Atlanta to Berlin last fall to join the Readmill team.
2. Round about December, I finally found a home! I also went to the flea market, saw a rainbow at Tempelhof, and visited some castles.
3. At the end of March, we announced that Readmill is closing. Like the product itself, our goodbye was a labor of love.
4. Along with my Readmill colleagues, I’m moving to San Francisco to join Dropbox.

You can do a lot of things if you’re not worried that you’re not supposed to be able to do them.
It was one of those March days, clear and sharp, when the sun shines in a perfectly white sky.
