The recession is still on, right?

Remember when I was flippin' for Anthropologie's lighting selection? I take it back, if for no other reason than this:

The "Chateau Lamp," retailing for $1,598.

The upside to purchasing this lamp? Having a place to move into when you lose your job and the roof over your head.

We posted about the exact same thing today...funny! I think this is really interesting, but more as art in a child's room maybe.

Complete crap. I think I could make that with some wire from the hardware store. Granted, then I would charge $2,598. But, mine would also come with a vineyard and fully stocked wine cellar.

Clearly the design industry does not read the newspaper.

Love it!

Raina-
Anthro is coming to Charlottesville. They're putting the final touches on the new space with an open date set for mid-August. I'm a little nervous for the competition in bedding, but if this is what their designers are putting out lately, maybe it's an unnecessary worry!

Pillow Mint - But they don't have the "Anita factor" and that's priceless.
