what big teefs you have...

all the better to eat your wall sconces with!

and, sorry, to all those expecting a mogg blogg post mocking these crazy, crusty, carnivorous wall lamps, think again- we have come not to bury wally gator, but to praise him- we think they are fabulous! (hey-what was that noise? the sound of all m21's past, current, and future design clients snapping their purses shut, and fleeing in terror, that's what!)

seriously though, while not for everyone, m21 thinks these are fabulous and unique pieces- the sort of one of a kind, large statement piece that that elevates a room from routine to completely unforgettable. against a deep tone glazed wall of an otherwise fairly formal and somber dining room, these could be amazing, providing a sense of both menace and whimsy, and you can be certain that dinner party conversation will never be at a loss with the ready subject of your host's questionable taste in lighting staring you down from above...

in closing, before y'all run to the comments section to discuss what a kook that maison21 is, we'd like to remind you of a quote by diana vreeland: ''Never fear being vulgar, just boring.'' words to live by...

comments are now open- have at it kids! ;-)

OK..I noticed them, also. But your reaction is so much better. I would never have thought of these babies in that light. Have a great day. Do you think the gators would intimidate Mona?

mary, mona is a very practical dog- if it's not food, or it can't pet her, anything else i bring into the house simply doesn't exist in her world.

does jones react to objects? i have a friend who had to remove a statue of a ram because her dog wouldn't stop barking at it...

Hmmm, my kids are obsessed with Peter Pan. I could redo my son's room. But I doubt he'd ever get a moment's rest again.

Crazy Jones is interested in anything antique (or smelly) that comes into the house; he would probably notice the gators. He, as you know, is now the official sales associate and spends many afternoons assisting clients (mornings he goes to doggy daycare, as full time work is too exhausting)!!! Happy hunting.

chris- if you put those in your peter pan obsessed little boys room, i'm afraid you'd get child protective services called on you! but just wait a few years- your boy will reach a stage where he BEGS for alligator lights, and would probably accessorize them with painted blood dripping from their teeth!

anon- we've been through this before, don't attempt to be funnier then the blog author- it will get you banned! ;-)

mary- while jones is sniffing antiques, mona would be stealing his food (and toys)! and doggie daycare? lucky boy!
