Go for Baroque

I’ll always remember the sign on a vending machine at an art school that I attended that declared : “ This machine is Baroque”.

I thought it was hilarious then and still find it kind of funny.


any ways.....


I’m not one for rococo or the baroque style and could never see this chair in my garden, but I do love it for its pure creativity .

They look like they are miniatures. I'm with you, they are nice but not in my space :)

Those chairs are a hoot. I keep picturing them in red velvet though. You're right, they are cool but not for me....

I imagine this would be a hit with my daughter (she's 4, and super girlie) hilarious! It's a little too fabulous for my garden of mostly recycled and salvaged materials. Cool find.

I love it for the somewhat shaky english descriptions on the website, "contaminating it with their innate enthusiasm." (as seen under the designers tab) Perhaps they chose the word contaminate on purpose, but I'm endlessly amused by it!

Oh come on! These are Hideous! HA! Just because they are Italian... and I bet you can get recycleable shopping bags and Croks to match! I couldn't find a price on the web site. Any Idea what they cost? These could look fab in a swarm of Pink Flamingos. Do you think they come in a "porta potty" version? Too funny...

Very colorful, to say the least. I sort of enjoyed the way the colors and arrangement went with gorgeous photo in your blog header. Of course bright colors in nature are a very different thing than bright colors in your garden furniture.

These are bookmarked! Love, love, love them. I'd have one in my garden. I'm the queen of eclectic.

I'm with Miss R. - I'd put one in my garden too just for the sheer joy of sitting in it and being the queen of my garden.

I'll take on too, just because they are so over the top!
I'd put a fluffy pillow in one though, doesn't look too comfy, and in my small garden something needs to be pretty and useful!
Although the price might throw me off!

They're cool in a bizarre way. My 11-year-old daughter would kill for that pink one.
