Perhaps the 348,000 visitors to the recent Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, a showcase of new domestic furnishings, are way more arty than me.
I say this because the wacky way this new kitchen is displayed, with green food-looking stuff strewn all over, does not appeal to me at all.
Rather, I have a powerful urge to get in there, haul that green garbage to the compost pile, close the drawers and doors, get those two countertop ovens off the counter, and then see what we’ve got. It’s probably not a bad-looking kitchen.
Here’s another display that looks as if the cook went on a drunken rampage.
See more expensive-looking kitchens displayed in really bizarre ways in the New York Times Magazine, if you dare.
What do you make of this? What kind of person is energized by this kind of staging? Or am I just a fuddy-duddy?
