The post in which I wonder if I missed something.

We occasionally get mail for the previous tenants, and one of our recent deliveries was in the form of a Mackenzie Childs catalog. The cover seemed harmless enough, so, over breakfast one morning, I opened it up to see what else they had to offer.

And saw this.


I had a little giggle at the fabric pairing on the chair and ottoman (maybe they were designed by an old man in the dark?) and the side table made of a drum/hatbox type thing (I do enjoy a good repurposing, but...) and then I glanced over to see how much those babies cost.

Good news, folks: for just $3,850, that oversized clown club chair can be yours, and for an additional $2,350, the ottoman can come along as well. I say, why not buy one for each room? (And in case you were wondering, the table is a mere $1,750.)
I also am rendered speechless by this goose planter, which, at 13.5" wide, 32" long, and 22" tall, wins the prize of being larger than my cat but smaller than Rick's ideal TV. Cost: $1,050 (!).


And in case a simple goose planter wasn't enough of a feathery fix, you could also purchase that matching side table for $1,950.


And in honor of Halloween/almost Christmas, and because I'm not sure what it's supposed to be, this headless woman. Although I suppose she's not entirely headless, since she has generously been given a lampshade for her above-the-neck area.


 I'm not sure what made me choke on my Shredded Wheat more: the cost of these things, or the fact that they make me think I'm looking at Barnum & Bailey gone undercover as home decor. All it's missing is a trapeze artist.

Oh, wait, never mind: I found one! A $19,500 one. Phew.


Which leads me to my question: did I miss something? I have truly never seen anything like the stuff in this catalog. And I promise I'm not just saying that out of some deep-seated irrational fear of clowns. Please enlighten me if you have more knowledge than I. :)

haha, my aunt LOVES Mackenzie Childs. she doesn't ever buy full price for any of it though... and, she gets the tasteful stuff... yes, there are some pieces that aren't as... out there... as those above!!! lol

but yeah, those prices are OUTRAGEOUS... no way, ever!

Erin said...

No way! I had never heard of them. I agree that some of the pieces (mainly the ceramics/pottery) could look nice on their own as opposed to an entire room filled with the stuff, which is what the catalog was like!! :)

Amy @ Journey Mum said...

I wouldn't even buy that stuff if I had the money! Whatever floats your boat though, I guess. Were the previous tenants loaded?!

Erin said...

Amy, I have no idea! I think they were about my age...but I guess maybe they could have had $$ if they had a (way) better job than me? :)

Mackenzie-Childs are high quality items and I love everything. I could easily decorate my home with any/all of the items and be complimented.
