Virgin Atlantic's Swank New Clubhouse; Nordic Design

NYC—Virgin Atlantic's new $7M "Clubhouse" at JFK airport just might be the swankiest living room in Queens. The 10,000-square-foot space is "a world of graceful elegance with cascading, shimmering golden ceilings of lighting, and soft, decadent textures." Meanwhile, the bar is "enclosed by a diaphanous, curving ‘wall’ of stainless steel rods and walnut fins; mediating views from and through the space and creating a series of distinct spaces." Of course, it's only open to folks who fly "Upper Class"—$7,000/ticket well worth it. [Gothamist via Apartment Therapy]

THE INTERNET—The good people over at Flavorwire have dropped an impressive encyclopedia of Nordic design, starting with chair master Arne Jacobsen and ending with chair master Yngve Ekström. [Laughing Squid]

NYC—Miraculously, supermodel Agness Deyn has sold her utterly crazy condo in Brooklyn. A trust paid $2.175M for the space, which a Curbed NY commenter once aptly described as an "Anthropologie store on steroids." Gotta love that bedroom. [Curbed NY; previously]
