Bonus Bone: Fun Umbrella Stand

Fun Umbrella Stand, available at Austin Modern

I stumbled onto Austin Modern via Desire to Inspire (Thanks Ladies!!). As soon as I saw this fantastic umbrella stand they were selling, I knew it would be my bonus bone this week. I love the contrast between its shiny elegance and its wacky silliness. Meret Oppenheimer's surrealist Table with Bird's Feet came to mind when I first saw it. What a wonderful way to add a bit of pizazz into what is normally a pretty hum-drum item.

For these reasons, I, Porcelain, declare this a Design Boner.
