Limited-Edition Fig Leaf Wardrobe

Qwerqghty

By Tord Boontje.

Introduced at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan in 2008.

"The surface of the wardrobe is created from the hanging of 616 hand-painted (front and back) enamel leaves on an internal tangle of branches made up of a lost wax cast patinated by French sculptor Patrick Blanchard."

The copper leaves are "painted by some of the last remaining fine enamel painters in England. Each leaf varies across 10 basic shapes and custom-mixed colors."

"The silk-lined interior of the wardrobe was made by Gainsborough Silks of Sudbury, England, and the upholstery was executed by R.D. Robins Upholsterers of London."

Ladder Stopper

Ladder-stopper-372454

Good idea.

Fact (mos def NOT a fun one): In the past six years, two men in my little subdivision (38 homes) have fallen off ladders and subsequently died, as a result of a fractured hip/pulmonary embolism in one case and a skull fracture/intracranial bleed in the second.

Fact: "... between 1990 and 2005 2,177,888 people from 1 month to 101 years old were rushed to emergency rooms across the country for ladder-related injuries."

You could look it up.

Fair warning.

Thick rubber; 26"W x 8"D x 2"H.

$12.99.
