Bonus Bone: Red Leather

I just can't let this Michael Jackson passing thing, well, pass, just yet. Besides the moonwalk, Michael gave us the iconic red leather jacket. In his honor, I wanted to highlight red leather for the home.

Yet, after my many minutes a'google, I found that red leather can often appear tragically flawed and/or uncomfortably weird.

But at design boner, we prefer to focus on the good in design, on the qualities that elevate acceptable into classic.

For these reasons, I, Cardboard, declare all this (and Michael) a Design Boner.

Ugh, I'd gouge my eyes out if I were in that office for more than 5minutes.

My brother had that coat. He wore it to school and got so much shit that I inherited it. 2nd grade never rocked harder.
