I love these slot-together little tables or stools. I saw them at the Powerhouse and then again in My Home magazine so I thought I'd look them up. I about fell over when I read the price. I mean, honestly, have a look at them and play a little guessing game. How much would you expect to pay? They come flat-packed, you slot them together and they're made from plantation pine.
So, what did you guess?
I thought I would pay about $120 for one of these and I thought I was over-estimating how much it would cost. You know, when you really like something and try to trick yourself into thinking it's a bargain and it's therefore easy to justify purchasing it.
That didn't work this time.
They cost $350.
They claim that this is collectable artwork that also functions as furniture.
That tricky word 'artwork' probably jacks the price up quite a bit.
Because normally I hear 'pine' and flat-pack' and I start thinking IKEA.
I'll just have to admire from afar.
Maybe, you'll be lucky enough to do more than that!
