I never look at their catalogue. Yesterday I did. For one simple reason. Foxy George Clooney was on the cover. Okay, it wasn't really him, more like the thought of him. Alright, it was just the sound of his voice. See......
If I lost you, it just means you haven't seen "Fantastic Mr. Fox". Worth renting. George Clooney is the voice of Mr. Fox. I've seen it 3 times.....don't ask.
Anyway, I liked the lines of the settee he had his foxy tail on. The fabric, uh...not so much. But this is the sort of piece if I could score a great fabric at a rock bottom price, I would consider recovering it for the right project or room!
I perused the whole catalogue. There were some other decent pieces amongst a whole lot of crap. Each page was an over-accessorized riot of color that required 2 Advil upon completion. Some of the vignettes I swear are from one of their 90's layouts and I am convinced they have stylist's on staff who are on crack. See for yourself:
Warning: these are not even the worst pages. But, in all fairness, the front of the catalogue does say "Creature Comforts". So if you keep the theme in mind and Advil handy, incorporating a unicorn and a goose into your interiors makes perfect sense. Kind of takes the focus off some of the accessories. Except for this last image. There are signs of crack use all over it. How do Goldilocks & the 3 bears fit into this???!!! It seems none of the Pier 1 beds were just right.
Hope everyone has a fantastic long weekend catalogue browsing, renting movies, playing outside or just hanging out!!!
