Furniture Society = Insanity Society

Because of all the tool writing I do, I've ended up on just about every single email distribution list that is even vaguely associated with the idea of a home. I've gotten pretty good at hitting the delete button, but this one made me stop and read...

Apparently there is something called the Furniture Society (not to be confused with the great band from the early 90s, The Information Society) and they have an award called The Award of Distinction. This year's winner is someone named Rosanne Somerson, who is the Interim Provost of Rhode Island School of Design.

Here are some of her award-winning designs....

We repeat: "Award-winning."

I don't get the table but think the bed is a fine piece. I could see that easily hitting the Top 3 on Lumber Jocks in short order.

Yeah, this post reminded me that this blog does not deserve to be in my feeds. If you were an actual tool snob you would realize that some of us do use tools to make fine furniture... bye bye...

Okay, here's my comment. You have no sense of design or taste. Or at least you have really inconsistent taste. These pieces would fit perfectly in an "Information Society" music video.
