knock-off Eames chairs look best under a slip cover.

Oh christ, the coffee sacks.

There is currently a fashion for anything upholstered in an old coffee bean sack.

In my part of London there is a shop that re upholsters Victorian button back chairs in this crap and they can't sell them quick enough.

Would look great with the rain barrel side table
Honestly,I don't know what drives trends,but nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the general public.

The coffee sack
trend is alive and well in Lausanne. Last month at the home & garden show the guy with the tufted-coffee-sack look had the Swiss stacked four deep in his booth.

Last year it was the Union Jack plastered on everything. This year, the coffee bean sack.

Jill chair
@Woodywood. Isn't that a Jill chair by Alfredo Haberli for Vitra? Not that that precludes its WTF status. It's just that I think any references to other chairs and designers are, in this case, entirely intentional.

You're right... I knew I had seen that chair somewhere before. And you're right that there is still no excuse for it. I am not a fan of Vitra products anyway.

a perfect fit
Heath,

You may have described 38,929,319 individuals or 12.6% of the US population.

As I always seek a "silver lining", I assume that someone constructed and sold the POS pictured to another citizen. The photo is an sign of someone's proud work.

Capitalism is good. Style and taste are a gift.

In complete contradiction to another post I kind of like it, the original of this I always thought was a bit silly anyway but WTF not? Those big girls bike seats are way more comfortable than racer seats.

It would be even cooler with Brookes brown leather seats though.

The horror
Not only is it godawful, but someone defiled a beautiful piece of Lane cubist MCM furniture to create it.

Nothing can make Louise XV or French Provincial style furniture look good IMHO but trying to combine that style with MCM is a sin against good taste of enormous magnitude.

Complete horrorshow that goes well beyond WTF.

It's um unique.
I can actually see that piece working in some settings. Certainly not mine though.

I don't think that's a Lane piece there. Their cubist furniture has a different scale to the individual elements.

The "antique" part doesn't look authentic, either. Furniture of that era wasn't made of wood with a grain like that, at least not that I've ever seen. If the piece is indeed real and not computer art, then I'm guessing it was just made that way from scratch.

I actually like the grain on that french armoire. Sandblasted oak?

- 05 Sep 2011

I like the grain too, I just...
I like the grain too, I just don't think that it's an original antique piece. It doesn't quite look like oak, and sandblasting would have damaged all those little carved bits, I would think---if it's even real.

Tinyarmada, do you have a link to the site where you found this?

- 05 Sep 2011

Here's the link
Yes, found it here: http://www.lyring.com/unique-dresser-furniture-design

I believe you all are right about it being an original piece. I really wasn't paying much attention. It was very late and I was going thru image results trying to ID my dresser and happened upon that pic and instantly thought WTF - so I added it to the thread. So much awful "upcycled" crap is out there rt now I didn't even question it.

My hate of French provincial and overwrought Louis XV style furniture knows no bounds, so when I saw it combined with what I thought was an actual piece of the Lane cubist stuff I like I was horrified.

I admit the sandblasted grain on the faux antique side is cool, but that's the only thing I can say positive about it. As an originally designed piece, IMO, it's trying way too hard. However, Im sure others will disagree with me.

Great market research, Walmart...
I'm sure the typical Walmart shopper, who waddles around with a cart full of 36-pack family sized breakfast pastries, won't exceed the weight restrictions of this lovely chair. Do you sell these by the multi-dozen, as well?

Heath...
Heath, I'm horrible. I totally LOLed at your post...

This is a great thread.

(In reference to the first post, does anyone else think the quality of Apartment Therapy has gone dramatically downhill?)
