While we're on the subject of "What were they thinking?"

I pass by a Roche Bobois almost daily and am feeling positively confounded by the Missoni Home for Roche Bobois collection that's now featured in the window. While I love the colors and prints, who exactly is supposed to buy into furniture where you're sitting exactly 8 inches off the ground? In a texture that looks essentially like a super-wide wale corduroy?



To me this simply looks like the most sophisticated dorm furniture ever created. You know, the equivalent of a beanbag chair for chic young things like Margherita Missoni.

Indeed. I do like looking at this, with its wild, non-matchiness, but wouldn't own it. It does seem like an upscale DIY foam cushion thing.

How would you wear a skirt and heels and sit on this furniture?

Agreed. Not only kind of silly, but ugly. Definitely looks like it should be in PB Teen. In fact, they have something almost identical:

Alaina- hilarious about PB Teen! You are totally right, it's the same thing just without the jazzy fabric!

Completely and totally agree -- and it DOES look like PB Teen's furniture (though the colors from PB Teen are less sophisticated). But I suppose there's a sucker (or a rich coed) born every day, no?

I'm with ya! I know I never feel more sexy and lady-like trying to upright myself from a squatted position on the floor. Ugh.
