I came across this link last night: The Walt Disney Signature Collection. It’s beautiful, art-moderne style furniture supposedly inspired by Walt Disney’s own office and home furniture. It must be pretty pricey stuff; the website doesn’t give prices, but the catalog alone cost $25 to order.
I have mixed feelings about this. Using Walt Disney’s name to sell high-end furniture? I guess that’s part of our modern world, but I’m not sure how comfortable I am with it. I’d be proud to own a piece that is equated with someone whose creativity and integrity I admire…besides, who doesn’t need a “martini table,” but then again I’m sure I (and countless other Disney fans) can’t afford it.
