I really, REALLY love the Strahov hall, by god it's beautiful. It fits wonderful with the ceiling and the dark shelves. Just amazing!

And the Yale is a wonderfull design, it makes it look valuable and like a statue, i mean like a show off, i find it hard to explain in English :P But wonderfull design!
