O.K. people, let me make clear, just because an object is listed here, you don’t have to burn it. I’m just saying it’s pervasive these days. Kind of like how when I was in college we used to go see Dave Matthews for $5 every Tuesday night at Trax with about 100 other people and now I have to share him with a millions of annoying people who have no manners at big huge concerts. Got it? This is not in the spirit of being mean or telling you that you are a trend ho. I am a total trend ho myself.
Here are some more objects we’ve been seeing all over the place lately, feel free to add your own, please don’t be offended if you have any of these, Lord knows I do too, yeah, big whoop, you’ve had it for years, you had it first, you started the trend – congrats, yadayadayada, the point is that all the sudden these things are spreading like wildfire! This week, because it’s spring, have a swig of gin and tonic whenever you flip through a magazine/peruse a blog and you see….
Anthropologie’s Astrid Chair (am I the only person who thinks that a lot of the fabrics, NOT this one, but some of the new ones everyone is blogging about, Josef Frank or not, are freakin hideous?). I think this is a fabulous chair, but yup, as over at Bluelines put it, it’s now the Ugg Boot of chairs:
Really though, I LOVE Anthropologie and most of their furniture and fabrics, I’m not hatin’, but PLEASE, let me know, am I the only person in the world who thinks this is the ugliest sofa in history? I would rather have the scratchy orange and plaid ’70′s sofa from Sears we had in college in my house that this thing. What am I missing here?:
and more BLEACH! Ugh…:
I feel like I’m the only blogger out there who missed the memo that these are fabulous. They seriously make me retch. Is something wrong with me? WHAT am I missing?
In all fairness, I must include my employer – Design Public offers this ubiquitous chair, seen on every TV reality show and just all over the place in general, the Vitra New Panton Chair:
