Do You Think I'm Pretty?

Today, I received a catalog with this chandelier on its front cover. My first reaction was: Who would want that monstrosity hanging in their home? I know what you're probably thinking: I'm sure it looks better when it's hanging in a room?

Negative. (Is it just me or does anyone else think it resembles a spider?) ...Maybe it would look cuter if it didn't hang down so far?

Nope...still scary. (Now, it reminds me of Medusa, you know the lady with snakes for hair) Perhaps you prefer more color in your chandelier? Then, this may be a better choice for you.

Sure, I understand everyone has different tastes, but sometimes I think designers purposely create objects that are just plain weird. And, if we don't like it, then we must not be able to understand their cool vibe. I don't know... I think some things are just plain hideous, no matter how you look at them.

When I first saw the chandelier, my initial thinking was: I should probably forward it to the Moggit girls.
Moggit is a hilarious new blog run by Joy and Janet who "tackle 'fugly' design and home decor on a daily basis." If you like to laugh, and think that design just sometimes goes too far, then you must visit Moggit.

  1. I'm with you YICKS it does look like a spider and I HATE spiders! Very strange!

  2. How funny... I was thinking, "Oh wow! Check out that chandelier! I wish I had an urban loft to hang it in!" But then that's how I buy outfits. I buy the shoes first and then build around the outfit. LOL. It's definitely not a traditional piece, is it. Haha.

  3. funky indeed
    although i did see a huge one like that in a gorgeous handblown glass shop & i loved it

  4. Lol! You are cracking me up. Seriously, that thing looks like a piece of trash! Ick!

    Thanks so much for the advice, I will definitely try it!

  5. Yes, guys you are a little droopy, ghostly even or just electric! All of it really.

  6. Ha! This cracked me up--both the photos and your commentary. The Moggit girls would love it, you're right. Love their blog.

  7. I'm a little scared! That first one reminds me of those things from the Matrix!

  8. Ummmmmmm.... no!!! I love sparkly and unique chandeliers, but these ones are just plain WEIRD!!

  9. FUGLY! It looks like an octopus! And the floor lamp is not any better!

  10. that looks dangerous. i'd be afraid that it would fall and kill me.
