maison21 is a bit brass obsessed these days, so today we enjoyed our morning coffee while searching the internets for "brass table" (the maison21 atelier has been without a coffee table for months- we sold our previous table to a client, and shattered it's mirrored replacement while impatiently trying to move it into the house by ourselves).

well, we enjoyed our coffee until we almost spit it out all over our keyboard, after running across this monstrosity.

words fail.
apologies to all our visitors- we know you come here in search of pretty, but today, we had to share our pain. when our vision finally returns to normal, we'll post more pretty pictures to help remove this image from your retinas.

I keep thinking Bravo will come out with a new reality TV show challenging designers to use something like this in a decorating showdown.

Looks like something you'd find strolling around the shops in Key West, FL. LOL!

Katiedid: Now THAT would be a challenge! If a designer is good, he/she could def make it work!
