You ever buy a chair, then redesign the whole room around it?

Neither have I, really, but I've heard of it.  My son even had a computer teacher who redesigned a whole bedroom around a new computer he bought.  (Note to self - good way to precipitate a divorce).

But here I am with a new logo, and I can't help but want to redesign the whole website around the logo... or inspired by it, at least.  I already moved the menus, and my daughter says I need to make the squares "more round" now that I have a curvy logo.    Maybe I could use an approach like the Rounded table corners in Notes or maybe just like the rounded corners in XP.  I think I will do away with the rectangular images, but I might add some other artsy touch in the side panels, perhaps with wound images instead of rectangular.

So, any ideas for me?

Perhaps you should hire Elmer Fudd for those "wound images"? :-)

And, yes... I have redesigned a whole room around a chair. More accurately, around a Scandinavian-style reclining chair with foot rest that took up far more space than the previous chair and pretty much dictated that the room had to be rearranged.

The running joke with some friends of mine was that I built a new house after getting the new Stickley furniture.

You could use OpenRico to round your corners. This way you don't need to tweak your html to get the corners round.
