No, that's not a spelling error but apparently the term used to describe cutting edge design that aims to spot new forthcoming trends . Lost me yet ? Yeah, me too. Why don't they just call it , 'new ways to sucker money out of debt laden design junkies who have more money than sense' ? Now that would be far more honest and cutting edge.

So what's included in this new Visuallyod concept ? According to Pulse, the retail marketing people, a cushion that looks like you've stood your coffee cup on it and left a ring stain or a canvas that has various circles printed on it ... re-inventing the wheel ? I think so.

I suppose design students have to keep coming up with something new all the time so I shouldn't appear like a grumpy old woman and moan but what I'd like to see them come up with is a nice sideboard ... now I really am showing my age.


  1. Lol Claire - I can't help with the sideboard but am good at getting coffee stains on things if you'd like me to do your cushions for free :)

  2. Don't think of it as "showing your age" but rather "acquiring wisdom". That's my story and I'm sticking to it! However if you would like any coffee stained art items at exorbitant prices I'm sure I could help ...
