worth it?


1.6 mil at phillips de pury & co for a circa 1988 marc newsom lockheed lounge (4/30/09).
worth it? maison1 says "hell yeah!", but then again, we don't have 1.6 million anything ('cept maybe dog hairs on our floors), so the point is moot...

what do y'all think? krazazy? or wise investment?

Oh sweetie....this one is easy to diagnose: krazazy. Don't get me wrong... I enjoy looking at "the jelly bean" in Chicago's Millenium Park to check my lipgloss as much as anyone...but I don't need one in my home. I'll pass and use my $1.6 for that sprawling manse in Lake Como thankyouverymuch.

My investment will make me neighbors with Clooney, affords me views of Italy's best and most beautiful and still has enough room for you to come visit. Now...who (I ask) has spent their $1.6 more wisely?

;)

I'm going with crazy. It's the price of a house. Maybe a couple of houses depending on where you buy. You could buy Detroit for the price of this.

Worth it? Definitely if it makes you happy every time you walk into the room (it does not look very comfortable) and you catch a glimpse of it.

Sign me up for two.

Crazy on whack crack!

It's worth it just so I can recreate Madonna's "Rain" video. Maybe they'll throw in the $10 wig to boot?

franki- your 1.6 mil could not have been spent more wisely. i'll have to pass on visiting your lake cuomo house though. for some reason, after a tiny misunderstanding here in los angeles, george filed a restraining order against me, and i can't get within 300 feet of him. when i bumped into him again in italy- COMPLETELY BY ACCIDENT- he somehow convinced the italian authorities to do the same...

um, townhouse lady- i could buy detroit for the same price? i'll take the chair... ;-)

jones, it would indeed make me happy to own it- but then again, if i had enough money that i could throw 1.6 million away on a chaise, i think i'd pretty damn happy anyway!

lucinda- done- we'll corner the market. there ae only ten you know...

jill- i make far too much money to do crack! (m21 says, channeling whitney)

billly- you are being far too generous with your madonna wig pricing. $4.99, tops!

Sarah said...

Karazy! lol, I guess my taste is not as fancy as yours, because this chair is all new to me! I can't decide what it reminds me of. It seems sort of frankenstein-y to me with all those "stitches" all over it. Is it comfy?

Love it, but think I could buy Lockheed Martin for that price...

katiedid said...

Hmmmmm....no. Unless you have useless space to fill and money to burn (and I can think of many other ways to get rid of 1.6 mill!). Can't imagine trying to get comfortable on this.Too cold in winter, and in summer...rivet marks dimpling your bare legs...
