Uh...no

- bath set -

Our second installment of "Uh...no," wherein I discuss/deride/make fun of common decorative touches that have wormed their way into the collective design consciousness. First up, bath accessory sets. Yes, we all need a wastebasket, something to hold the toothbrushes, and a soap dispenser, but why must all of those items match? Like twinsie end tables and night stands, matching bath sets show a lack of design imagination. And more about mirror madness at a later date.

- "modern" dog bed -

Goofy dog beds. Even if it matches your Le Corbusier or Eames, it's just wrong. Fido deserves the best, the best being a perfectly functional round or square cushion filled with cedar shavings. Embroidering "Winky" or "Beatrice" (bonus points for that reference) is optional.
