How are the rich different from you and me?

Elle Decor.

The stuffed animal collection in their child's room is a $75,000 Fernando and Humberto Campana Banquete chair.

Above, the bedroom of Aerin Lauder's son in her East Hampton, New York home. That would be Lauder's summer house.

Think about this chair the next time you find yourself lingering at an Estée Lauder counter.

75K! WTF? Did they go and breed actual miniature animals?

More money than sense.

I was wondering what to do with all the stuffed animals the boys don't play with anymore! That would be a great start to the college fund!

Sol Kawage said...

you don't get it. the animals are stuffed with cocaine. that's why it's so cheap.

So that's what $75,000 buys you these days.

I just don't get it. I really don't. what is the point? How will this child and his pals appreciate this chair? They would probably prefer a target bean bag.

Affluenza! Ha! And Susie, we've already blogged it, wouldn't you know?

ps: I hate Estee Lauder products. Ick!

Maybe I should have been an Avon lady or better yet, a Mary Kay representative instead of going to law school. At least I would have gotten a klassy pink cadillac out of it! ;0)

I'm scrubbing the Lauder for Men off my skin as we speak.

$75K & fuck ugly too.
money don't buy taste - that be for sure!

And you just know the little darlings will get some sort of crumb-y snack all over it and in between the tiger and the owl and the whole thing will have to be chucked.

For $75K it had better drive me to work, pick me up, massage my feet and make me dinner. Every day.

I am so dumb. I didn't click your link to the actual chair and I thought some magical, beautiful chair was hidden under those stuffed animals. I thought, "Geez, you're gonna pop for some fancy ass chair and cover it up with your kid's toys?!"

It looks like someone barfed-up FAO Schwartz. Erm...I'm not as dumb as the people who bought that chair!

Rich people in the know need a place like Moss to spread the Affluenza. I know, I know, I know. They do wear those dust masks made from Fortuny fabric, but that doesn't do much to stop the spread of the disease, does it?

erin@designcrisis said...

Mmm, but David, I bet your skin is so silky smooth ;)
