Living Hand to Table?
"While furnishing post-college apartments, designers Christakos, Lazor and Blanks discovered they couldn't afford the things they liked, and didn't like the things they could afford. Inspired to change this, they started their company in 1997."
Um, the Strut Table is $1,100. Their sculptural Butterfly Rocker is $849.
That's a really admirable statement and all - who says people with low incomes shouldn't be able to have beautiful homes? - but I don't know any new college graduates who would consider dropping over a month's rent (or possibly two) on a table. I'm sure that lots of people would consider this furniture "affordable" but ... people in their early twenties (lacking trust funds) are not among them.
For the record, my IKEA dining table cost $149. Is it wrong of me to feel outraged about the term "affordable" being thrown around so loosely?
