Yes or No?

It would coordinate with a lot of colours. But it’s a bit jarring on the eyes.image

For a child’s room, it might be cute. For a more formal public space, I’d be doubtful.image

Shiny. Creepy. (It’s a door handle)image

It’s not real. It’s not real. image

Yes or no?

  1. No on the couch--it looks pixilated, and will cause blurry vision, trying to focus on it.
    Yes on hand-shaped hardware, at least if it is comfortable to grasp--what if you are a lefty? Otherwise, as a sculpture.

    1. I agree about the sofa. Hard to focus. And yes, what if you're left-handed?

  2. imagine coming home drunk and seeing that sofa? I like things with a sense of humour otherwise the house gets too serious. But like jokes in real life - perhaps just dotted around rather than the whole house being a joke?

    1. I can't even imagine! I'd probably try to flop down on it and miss, and land on the floor in a pile.

  3. Owl is nice, the rest rather queasy making.

    Wondering if you will be commenting on the Baltimore based film "12 O'Clock Boys" that is getting a certain amount of notice in the NY Times and elsewhere - your views would be interesting....

    1. Not commenting on "12 O'Clock Boys" because you wouldn't want to hear what I have to say on the topic. Suffice to say, I lived through that and it didn't leave me with positive feelings towards them.

  4. all painful on the eye; the sofa I could see in a graphic designer's lobby.

  5. No to most, especially the sofa!

  6. I see the sofa on a large flokati rug against navy walls with two humongous brass lamps at either end.

  7. I like Danish design so the chair's a big yes for me, everything else no.

  8. The sofa was no doubt inspired by Salvador Dali. His famous canvas Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at twenty meters becomes a portrait of Abraham Lincoln Dali used pixals before the average person knew the word. He was an artist that studied optics -- one should not take something out of context. Or this was inspired by a Pantone ink/color book with the screened percentages of colors or the registration of a four color printing process-- in any event f is something the tradesman sees not the consumer it is not unusual for someone trained in the visual arts. Checks are in the mail.

  9. The sofa is growing on me, if it had a couple of stuffed animals on it too and a nice blanket.

    1. You're an artist, so you can visualize it!

  10. I tend to reject forcefully anything that hurts my eyes---that sofa has got to go. Everything else, I'll just quietly take a pass.
    Thanks for waking me up!!

  11. resounding "no" on the sofa + a soft "no" on everything else. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

  12. Major "no" on everything but the rocker, however, would not live with it either.

  13. The odd-sized cushions and crazy fabric on the sofa do not help sell that design -- clunky, chunky, over-sized arms and very temporary trendy look .... would end up on sale on Craigs List or in a college apartment. Everything else -- No. Even on the rocker -- those spindles would hurt the back ....

  14. Love the Anon 10:37 comment. I feel like I've been on a trip to the Twilight Zone and back in just a minute.

    Aside from that, NO!

  15. I actually like the rocker, the arms only look pointy due to the angle of the photo! And the owl side table would be cute in a nursery or small child's room. I give the deer head and the hand hardware a no, and the sofa; the more I look at it......I would like to sit in it.....but in someone else's house!

  16. I like the sofa fabric, but I don't like it on the sofa. I love the deer head in an ironic sort of way.

  17. In a Goldilocks fashion I have to say...no one thing is just right. And some are downright creepy!

  18. I see these pieces and I'm reminded of Bart Simpson & his look-at-me antics while Lisa's trying to say something. But then I hear, not Lisa's exasperated muttering, but the cool tones of Bunny Mellon: "Nothing should be noticed"

  19. My sons would LOVE that pixelated couch fabric. It looks just like that Minecraft video game they are both obsessed with. Now, where was that yarn trophy deer when I was Christmas shopping for my sister? Not the sister I like; the other one... ;-)

  20. Oh my goodness! has any one searched on the internet for the Salvador Dali image mentioned in the comments above? You will not be disappointed if you do.
