OMG. The Sunday Times Style section - bless its preposterous, self indulgent, metro-centric self - has gone into overdrive. Whipped itself into all sorts of a tizz re some must-have interior accessories. Don't even get me started on a cushion costing £120 smackeroonies...even if it is entitled 'Boy with Coif'. Or an inflatable bowl.
However, here we have a fairly ordinary Ligne-Roset sofa - so far so good - sprawling, extensive and covered in - wait for it - 'a pixellated print'. See above. Gross or what? It might well be the most comfortable of couches but I can't begin to think of the interior where it will sit comfortably....But each to their own, I expect someone somewhere is waiting for this. I glanced at the price and it took a second or two for the reality to sink in: and that's £18,500.00 worth of reality.
Now it's the sort of thing that if I were to see it on the laid out on the tarmac next to a van at Tuffins Sunday Car Boot I wouldn't be at all surprised. Plus I'd get all the little extras: mouse nests, fleas and fag burns and an oleagenous je ne sais quois annointing every horizontal surface. What's more if if cost more than £18.50 I'd be surprised. There are bargains to be found in these parts.
I do hope my lack of appreciation of this 'hot' piece of furniture doesn't mean I'm turning into a hick from the sticks. What's so 'hot' about pixellated anyway? Discuss.
