world’s ugliest couch

Ok, so the world’s ugliest couch was just shown at milan design week 09. ugh. Where do I begin with this thing? It’s so over the top and gaudy. It is called “Montanara” and is designed by Gaetano Pesce.

The overall appearance of this couch is so incredibly ridiculous. Just imagine this eye sore sitting in your living room. It demands so much attention. It would dominate the entire living experience.

The only way to balance it out would be to use it in a theme room where EVERYTHING is over the top or a kid’s room. Kids’ rooms have a completely different function of which this is better suited.

Even then it has one serious issue. Where’s the boat? The seating cushions are fashioned to be water. So what are people going to do when they sit on this couch? It defies all logic to be sitting on the surface of the edge of a waterfall. I want to see a photo of someone looking like a complete moron sitting on this couch. They should have incorporated a rock or a boat on the seat cushions.

That’s pretty darn ugly. I like say “pretty” and “ugly” in the same sentence :O)

This looks like it belongs the the “modern” furniture store on Western just north of Lawrence. It has the most over-the-top funky-shaped furniture. In fact, I would not be surprised if they had this couch in stock. I should go there and take photos sometime. Maybe they’ll just think i’m shopping for a couch.
