The Queen of Plastic Lawn Furniture

Design of Love Queen Chairs

I kind of can’t believe that people are willing to pay upwards of $1K for a plastic chair made to mimic the excessive Louis XV style. But Linvin‘s Design of Love furniture is on Fab.com today, and those chairs are quickly selling out at a $687 “sale price”!

Admittedly, these do look like the Big Pimps of lawn chairs. I would color coordinate matching plastic flamingos if I had one.

There is no King Throne of Love. The highest chair in the sitting hierarchy is The Queen of Love:

An ironic revisiting of the Louis XV style, the QUEEN OF LOVE Armchair is not only a luxurious choice for seating but an irresistible statement piece for any décor. This surprisingly comfortable armchair owes its whimsical appearance to its baroque style, bright, modern color options, the exaggerated contours and intricate details that encompass each armchair. Made in a rotational mold, the armchair is a seamless, durable piece of furniture made entirely of recyclable linear polyethylene.

I would love to see that enormous rotational mold they speak of. Points for recycling, but is this thing comfortable?

Shouldn’t your offspring also be entitled to the opulence of an expensive plastic chair? But what if you happen to have a young son? You wouldn’t want to offend the morality of the psychologists idiots who recently got all upset over a boy wearing nailpolish in a J. Crew ad. The thought of a l’il dude perched proudly on this Little Queen of Love chair reminds me of a great movie, My Life in Pink.

I don’t really understand the nomenclature of this piece. It feels like a wasted opportunity. They should have gone all Little Prince with it. Or maybe Paisley Prince.

Another missed opportunity here. These should be called Big Pimpin’ Chalices. Snoop Dog should have been given a couple Pots gratis in exchange for promotional photos. He could grow pot inside of them. Ohhhh…is that why they’re called Pots of Love?

Now I’m frustrated! I don’t get the joke of the Joker of Love. Maybe VH1 has just ruined the expression “of Love” because I’m looking at those cubes expecting to see some kind of Hollywood Squares with Flavor Flav and Bret Michaels.

I like many other seemingly excessive or unnecessary plastic objects, so I wonder why I’m not feeling these? Check out the Furniture of Love flash sale going on now at Fab.com and let me know what you think.
