Decor8 didn't think it was right to do this to a beautiful designer sofa and asked her readers what they thought.
Reactions varied. Some objected to a rich person defacing a designer piece, other saw it as controversial and daring, as good art should be. There were a lot of opinions on topics such as children self expression/ parental irresponsibility/subversiveness/yuppy indulgence/freedom etc..
Meanwhile I missed the point entirely.
Because the one thing comments seem to agree on was that it was hideous.
What a shock. To me it was the most beautiful thing I saw all week.
Me and my terrible taste.
No, no really. Don't try and reassure me. I do have terrible taste.
But it's MY terrible taste.
So after (briefly) mulling it over I decided:
FAMILY! We're SO doing it!!!!
The abuse shall be perpetuated tomorrow 10 am eastern standard on our old Klippan. Not exactly designer-cool but that's all I have. The weapons: a kitchen drawer overflowing with markers, a very creative a nine year old boy and his friends.
I'm totally excited. If it fails I'll cover it back up with the slipcover. Nothing to lose. I'll take pictures.
