Can a sofa cause cavities?


In looking over the Mon Amour collection from Italian manufacturer Desart, I would say the answer is yes.


I know, I know, there's room for everybody. But really?


A lot of effort went into these pieces, and they're very well made. But still.


They're fully customizable too.


Is it me or does this combination of stain and upholstery look like the queen bee alien from Alien?

Argh. What do you think?

  1. I'm having a hard time picturing any home that those pieces would work in. I was trying to write something witty, but I find myself speechless. I haven't watched the original Alien movie in ages, but now I'm going to have to dig it out and watch it in my 6yo's room.(the only room with a vhs player)

  2. I kept running into a wall when I was trying to be witty too. Ugh.

  3. Yeah, ummmm ... thank goodness they can be customized? Mom always said "if you can't say anything nice ... ". Wow. Speechless.

  4. They are hideous and remind me of the stalk-eyed fly:

  5. Arne: I wonder if I can customize it into a whole other piece of furniture.

    Melody: That's it! No wonder the black one reminded me of the alien from Alien.

  6. Right now, the good folks at Anthropologie are taking furious notes.

    Expect a Tyrolean Trip in next spring's catalog.

  7. I won't mind if they take me along on that trip to Tyrol.

  8. Speaking as a woodworker, I share your disdain for what has been done here. It is entirely too gimmicky for my tastes. Some years ago I came across a woodworker who creates wonderful furniture and cabinetry. His stuff has simple lines, but it is very well made. His ideal of furniture, he said, was “furniture that quietly does its job; it should not call attention to itself.” Ditto.

  9. Bleh, way too "cutesy" and it doesn't even look comfortable.
