I wasn't planning on doing a piece of the week this week because I am more stressed than I can every recall being and pretty much despise decorative arts at the moment. However, tonight was our very last lecture class in Survey of Decorative Arts, which means that I'm done with the "basic" overview. I really, really enjoyed both semesters of this class and am truly sad to see it done. So your piece of the week is the final slide we looked at tonight: Philippe Starck's gnome tables for Kartell (they each have names--I think the one on the left is Attila--but I am too bloody tired to look them up).
I can't imagine filling my house with these fellows, but just one sounds rather delightful.
