Fugly Furniture & Home Decor: The Moggit Girls Hate Your Eel Coffee Table
Joy Zaczyk and Janet Villeneuve are probably thinking what you're thinking whenever you see a fancy-schmancy design item that is too precious for its own good. They are the bloggers behind Moggit. They are unafraid to call out "fugly" furniture when they see it. Snarky is their full-time job.
What is the worst piece of furniture you've ever seen?
Bar none--it has to be the eels in the coffee table. Months later it still gives us the willies...
Have you ever seen a home accessory so bad it's actually good? The line is frightfully close sometimes between genius and madness.
Good question. And yeah, we see stuff like that all the time. This shelving system is a great example of that genius/madness design esthetic. It totally looks like it was strung together by a crazy designer hopped up on Red Bull & vodka; but it's actually a practical, usable, quite simple and clever design-- that also just happens to also look like a hot mess.
How do you feel about super-expensive furniture? Worth it? Never worth it?
Oh... that's a tough one for us. We do see lots of super-expensive pieces that just make us scratch our heads and ask each other why anyone would ever think it was worth the asking price.
We really don't get that 'herd mentality' that seems to attach itself to a particular brand or name seemingly just for the sake of the name. The question we like to ask ourselves about 'super-expensive' items is this: if 'So & So' designer's name wasn't attached to this piece would it still be regarded as genius?
"Yes, it is--a RAT chandelier"
Or would it be regarded as junk? And if the answer is junk, then it's definitely not worth it.
