Kicking around the Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show in SoWa a few weeks ago I came across these amazingly-unusual colorfully adorned toilet seats hand made by a Boston-based artist. Her operation is playfully named Toiluxe.
The inspiration for this bathroom art was born out of necessity — the necessity to gift something unusual with an unmistakable use. Who owns a decoupaged, beaded, tassel- trimmed toilet seat?
The seats are collaged, heavily lacquered and can be custom ordered to suit a theme, event or personality. They start at $80 and can be ordered on Etsy.
In the artist's words, "I'm not Martha Stewart, but then again, she's not me, either."
