No More Ugly Furniture.

While it is my main objective to present cool, interesting and Most Excellent Design Destinations, Furniture, Accessories, Art and other things relating to tasteful interior design, I simply could not resist posting this information sent to me by my assistant, Megan.

Furniture retailer, Bo Concepts has begun a contest to search for the ugliest furniture in the world. On their site you have the opportunity of downloading Jpegs of your ugly furniture for a chance to win a Grand Prize gift card of $7,000.00 worth of brand new Bo Concepts furniture. Fifteen runner-ups will have the opportunity of each winning a $1,500.00 gift card to the store.

What I think is Most Excellent is the concept behind this contest. The winner, chosen by public opinion, will hold such an honorable title as having the ugliest piece of furniture in the world and a shopping spree worth $7,000.00. Above and below are just a few pieces of furniture that made me cringe.
