That's a new one so far as I'm concerned. And a bit scary. Do plastic roses also surround themselves with thorns as do real roses? :) I also wonder how comfy it is. I'm guessing you weren't allowed to try it out.

It does look a tiny bit out of place in it's surroundings.

Very interesting contrast: the multi-colored sofa and the antique furnished room!

I don't suppose it's meant to sit on!

The more I do not like her, the more she keep surprising me with her creativity! Great room and wonderful image, by the way!

I love seeing her work. It's very funny in that location.

Clever way to keep people from sitting down:) I like the concept!

William Kendall said...

Quite a contrast between that couch and the rest of that exquisite room!

I can't tell if that is bizarre or wildly creative. Makes me think of the Rolling Stones' Dead Roses.

Jack said...

Yes, it is creative, but no, I do not like it and, no, I don't want to sit on it.

Sami said...

She is a great artist, I'm not sure the roses will be comfortable to sit on though.

Randy said...

That does not match the decor.

Hard to compete with those tapestries but it does it.

My eyes are drawn to the beautiful chandler. Do like your composition of the whole shot.
