Another window at the mall.

I love the reflections in this and the odd mix of rustic stuff and faux-rustic stuff. Is faux-rustic a new genre? If so, should it be spelled faux-rustique? Just wondering, as that's something that would go over really big in Chicago. I rather like the combination of elements in here: the glass, the wood, the ceramic (kinda the wrong sort of ceramic for the wood, or maybe it's just too "modern" and not decorated in a rustic manner with hand applied glazes and such.) I do like the fusion, however, and the oddly science fictional feel this has. It makes me think of something I'd see in a George Lucas produced movie.
This is a wonderful image!
And I laughed aloud at what you'd said about defenestration; it is the Prague municipal sport! If there are going to be mysterious circumstances, it will involve a window, a person, and gravity...they're just careful to keep dung heaps away from all conveniently deadly patches of ground beneath conveniently high castle windows. (According to legend, one of the first free-fall participants in an early murder-by-window incident, the said victim was miraculously saved when he belly-flopped, or something like that, in a dung heap. It saved his life.) I am also pleased to see that the window featured in this photo (a gorgeous photo, by the way) seems to be sufficiently defenestration-proof.

My 88yr old mother has a mixer almost identical to the one in the window. She got it from her mother's estate. It is older than me  and still works perfectly. I remember using it as a child and teen to mix the "Mashed" potatos for dinner.
