I recently allowed myself to leaft through some interior design magazines (when I was a little girl I wanted home decorating to be my profession, but I also wanted to do a bunch of other things, so you can't take it seriously).
Precisely: not taking things seriously is what makes it great. And it's also what makes great design, or at least the kind of design that I love the most: creations that make me smile.
All right, this shelf by a Barcelona-based designer Jordi Mila, is not the most practical thing on earth. But the emotional ROI (return on investment) is huge.
The shelf's name is "Tree of knowledge". Quite appropriate, too, for if you know yourself (back to my favorite topic, here we go!) you'd know from the second you lay your eyes on it, that you either love it or hate it.
You already know my answer.
Thank you, Jordi Mila! You are my friend now!
