Can we just talk about the greatness of the site Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table?
It’s been around for years now, but so has that feeling of jealousy-meets disbelief-plus a touch of disgust-and a dash of impressed.
It exists so that when you’re searching the interwebs for things like hallway sconces and you come across one you like and you dare look at the price and you’re like LOL JK LEMME TAB OVER TO THAT IKEA PAGE, it can console you. Well, sort of.
Oh, did you think last week’s tacky post about how much the house is costing was a one-time rant? Heh.
This is a hole in the world’s ugliest wall. It will not be filled with a $400 sconce.
When I first sat down tonight, it was to write about how I finished a project this weekend. But then, of course, there was the need to procrastinate. So, I’m going to go backwards to the FYNCT site, have a look around, then back another step to the ‘spensive lamp shop, where I will realize I cannot / do not want to buy anything, and then, reluctantly, I will write about “my project.” My tiny, feeble attempt to have a space that looks like like it’s part of this framed chalkboard ambivalence, antlers, globe, tiny flag garland, and light fixture covered in pages from a book room.
P.S. Don’t worry, I’m not in a totally bad state. In fact, I’m quite excited about where all the progress is leading.
