Trendir strikes out


At some point last week, Trendir ran a typically breathless story about this furniture series by Toan Nguyen for Walter Knoll.




Maybe it's just me, but this stuff looks like shriveled genitalia. Expensive, shriveled genitalia. Whither goest thou Trendir?

  1. Okay I seriously laughed outloud when I got to the bottom of this post! I was thinking elephant legs, but well....

  2. I just saw this in a magaine. The blurb said the stools were adjustable in height which is why they have the gathered leather. Of course, from now on I will think of you - I mean your comment.

  5. Elephants leg is a good one. The first picture reminded me of a top hat - something you would expect to see Johnny Depp wearing in one of his strange movies.

  6. I was all ready to go along with the elephant leg thing until I saw the chairs in the last photo. Maybe I spent too much time around horses when I was a kid.

  7. KitchAnn, most genitalia are adjustable in height as well, so I think you and Paul have really hit the nail on the head with this one.

  8. Yeeeeeeah. Quick! Must find something pretty to look at. Oh. imagery I must get out of my head. CLICK, CLACK, CLACK. That's me leaving this page.

  9. That's exactly what I thought - horse wankers

  10. My first thought was "Leeches, Rosie! Get 'em off of me!".

    Though now that you've poisoned our minds, maybe they'd be wise to market directly to the horsey set?

  11. This is fun! Horse wankers it is. Although the comment of the day goes to Patrick for invoking The African Queen.

  12. My thought was Ack- the dust. Huge crevasses of dust and maybe lurking spiders. Like gathering around an old unused, uncircumsised penis. Dinner, everyone!

    Just had to catch up on some fun stuff after airport delays and horrible weather!

  17. OMG Paul... shriveled genitalia!! I really really wish that I couldn't, but I totally see what you mean!!

    Thanks so much for dropping by and commenting on our yard transformation - I'm so looking forward to planting shrubs, flowers and shimmery grasses!!

  18. Paul that was exactly my first thought when I saw it on Trendir! It really should have had some sort of cautionary rating so you were prepared to see something so hideous-- like "Viewer Beware... May Contain Unsightly Explicit Material!"

  19. I suspect genitalia are easier to clean, Paul.
