Inexplicable Design Items

Pin it button big

We all have them, and we're not ashamed to admit it. Well, maybe just a little. In each and every one of our homes resides that kooky, kitschy little item that we refuse to give up. Sure, it makes no sense we have a pair of cat salt and pepper shakers in our brand new, deluxe kitchen -- so what?

So you have to explain for the umpteenth time that there is no story behind the ship in a bottle sitting on your modern side table. You just happen to like that tiny schooner, that's all. It's O.K.

Whether it be a childhood memento or an ordinary thing that just clicks with us, we all have those inexplicably tacky little items we could never part with. Regardless if the object of our affection may be a pillow, rug, painting (usually of the velvet persuasion) or kitchen tchotchkes, we love them...no matter what you say. We may hide them when you come over, however.

What is your inexplicable item?
