Friday’s Photo

Continuing  last Friday’s theme of questionable design choices. Today’s photo comes from Restoration Hardware’s new “deconstructed” furniture line.

I don’t know about you but I can’t wrap my head around spending $2,545.00 for a sofa that looks like something you stole from the upholster before they started to work on it.

So I ask you friends…love it?    or love it not?

    not, it’s too kitschy and silly. really…

    Ummmmmm….no. May be interesting for a photograph but not for everyday living.

    Love it not! I’m into the whole industrial chic look, but this is a bit of a stretch… without the fabric ;-) I really like your fun Friday photo posts! Have a great weekend, Linda :-)

    I think the appeal is very limited. Maybe for a great New York City loft or a pied-à-terre in Paris. The rest of us mere mortals need some fabric on our couches!

    They should have just saved the money on the HUGE catalog they just sent out. Maybe they should use their money elsewhere!

      OMG Kelly, when I got that catalog I couldn’t believe it! It was like a phone book! As a matter of fact, it is still wrapped in plastic on my desk. I haven’t even opened it yet.

    This trend will last about a minute! If I spend that kind of money I want something to live with for years.
    Where’s the beauty?

      Beverley, I have to say I completely agree with you. I think Restoration Hardware has taken a wrong turn down the design path.

    I think the prices are high but I think the art of it is beautiful. Look at the wood work and stitching. Theres not a piece a furniture that cost’s half that price that is built this well or that looks that cool. As a matter of fact I have been “picking” pieces of truly vintage furniture to do the same thing to them. These are I believe replicas of vintage furniture. I can’t imagine they would be able to “pick” the amount of furniture they are selling. Either way I am in love with how they look and wish I could be on their team of designers…I’d settle to be a fly on the wall:)
