That IS like what we saw in Atlanta, possibly worse. Love the shape, hate the rest. xoxoxox g.

kate said...

yes, the shape, all good. everything else...yuk.

brismod said...

A bit too much although I agree the shape is good. Looks like licorice allsorts.

Acanthus and Acorn said...

No, no and in case I seem undecided...uh...no!!! Especially at that price! Crazy!

Tonia {Chic Modern Vintage} said...

NO.

Marija said...

I thought it was 695 and I thought "not bad for a play room or bonus space". At 7 grand? Nope.

i'll let you know my thoughts as soon as my eyes un-cross.

Paul Anater said...

It looks like it was upholstered with the scraps left over from everything else. Although if you displayed a candy dish with the licorice allsorts suggested by brismod on an end table next to it, it might make a motif strong enough to give rise to a new design trend. No more Belgian farmhouses, give me a London confectioner's shop!

Pretty much couldnt be worse.

That sofa needs and intervention. And, some medication.

nkp said...

Oops- an, not and! My brain function hasn't yet recovered from this weekend!

barf.

Jessica said...

woah - I mean I like colour and pattern but this is too much even for me - "licorice allsorts" is right on and those things are gross

not a chance in decorating hell

erin@designcrisis said...

Ok, I'll just say that it wouldn't work in many spaces, but I could see it being cute somewhere. Kid's room? Sparse funky loft?

The price, however, is laughable.

david john said...

everything including the shape is off for me..

susieq said...

Okay, Erin has a point about the kids room thing. But it's patchwork gone way wrong. And seizure-inducing.

sanctuaryhome said...

I don't completely hate it. But the price is completely ridiculous.

Scarlett said...

You know what they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Looks comfy though.

Bromeliad said...

Seizure-worthy

Jill said...

Where's my lithium...I'm feeling a psychotic break coming on.

my favorite and my best said...

that price is bullshit. but it's not the worst patchwork number ive ever seen. id be curious to see it in a room before i made too harsh a judgement. the shape however is lovely.

Kate said...

hehehe! I like it.

J said...

I couldn't look at it too long...I got dizzy.

Pemberley said...

Great for a kids playroom at the beach house for $699. Otherwise did someone loose a design bet?

mb said...

No thank you. Really.

Katharine Fuchs said...

F&*k NO!

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

I dont hate it. I can see it working it certain places. dont like the wrapped legs though.
Also the price - thats the kinda stack you gotta place down for a decent sofa down in these parts.

Ugh!

Raina Cox said...

Scarlett, J, and Katherine Fuchs - Hello to each of you and welcome to this deliciousness!

sarah, flourish design + style said...

My first thought was Tommy Hilfiger- I'm not sure if thats good or bad.

sherri said...

bleccchhhh.

PATTERN EXPLOSION

i wouldn't even put that in the garage as a cat bed.

Kerry said...

not for everyone or everywhere...but I like!

The Shiny Pebble said...

I can see it in a nightclub, with velvet covered walls, two story mirrors... It is Vegas baby!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

I dunno...I'm a ho...I wouldn't turn down anything from ABC.

I wouldn't pay for it tho.

I borrowed your post about the miami home below...linked back to ya.

Raina Cox said...

Kerry and Linda - Hello to you both and welcome to this deliciousness!

Kristin said...

My first thought....EEEEEK!

I have NO thoughts. I can't. It's sucking the energy from my brain like kryptonite.
