Not to trample all over someone's fun time...but it doesn't seem to be as useful as it could be, considering you can't really put stuff on the ledge unless you want to remove it every time you iron clothing or want to fold laundry.
Yeah this has another name, folding table and regular ironing board. It really fails on all its objectives: it doesn't save any space, it doesn't improve the experience of ironing, it doesn't increase flexibility and in my opinion also isn't very attractive. I have not looked at the price of it but I imagine it ain't cheap either.
Laundry "room"? Looks like an ironing board to me.
Seems to have been designed by someone who doesn't ever iron more than a tie. Your clothes need to be able to drape around the board so the already ironed portions don't re-wrinkle. It is more clever as just a pull out table design - I would ditch the ironing board idea. For ironing board storage, the old fashioned pull down from a wall cubby version is much better and could be made to look fancier than most you find.
I was expecting a washer and dryer, agree with it being kinda useless and kinda ugly.
I think this one is going to unanimous. I was hoping for clever airing space etc. This 'laundry room' doesn't even seem to have storage for an iron.
I was expecting a washer and dryer too.
Huh? So confused. I got all excited for....an ironing board? No hamper?!!
Another for washer/dryer. They have ironing board that go on the back of your door and flip down - much better at saving space then this contraption.
The fold-down ironing board in my grandma's 1930's house was larger and had room to drape. Certainly not as "stylin" but charming and functional.
It's just the ironing board and counter? Huh.I use the top of my front loading washer & dryer as a folding station, so I can fold while things are warm and wrinkle free. And I got a wall mount fold down ironing board (Home Depot) in an ok looking oak cabinet. It's not as stylish, but it functions well for me and I just know it was way cheaper.
Another vote for: Where's my large appliances at?
I wasted my time to click on this POS?!
@ Bruintoo: Yes, you did! And also to comment! I'm convinced AP runs these weird/misleading posts when they get bored and just want to be amused by our comments.
Perhaps we don't appreciate this because we don't iron like Italians iron. They iron everything. I'm guessing the table is where they place folded up shirts, underwear, hankies once they are ironed. Just a guess. Because we have no other info. And the web site's a dud.
Well, what a disappointment.
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
