Stylish Examples of Web Apps Wanted

On the web there are some great examples of how to make web sites look stylish using CSS. For example, http://www.csszengarden.com/

However these designs don't take into account the needs of the average web application. I want to make my web applications a whole lot sexier. Does anyone know of any examples of really stylish web applications?

http://www.guuui.com/ has good info on interaction design.

Also this guy who wrote an article on guuui has a nice gallery of web apps:

Thanks for those links. Very useful.

P.S.: BTW, Every time I see the URL of your site, I read it as Tivo On Software (I know I am counting 'O' twice! ;))

Those LukeW web app screenshots are just what I was looking for. Very, very sexy.

I want a designer on my team with the level of talent their designers must have.

I am glad the link was helpful. Originaly, I wanted the domain name tivon.com, but it was taken so I went with this one :-)

Yeah, totally +100 for LukeW. That is a fantastic body of work.

I wish I could do that stuff, or at least hire people who could do design like that.
