    gosh! if this stuff gets the approval, i’m going to at Estabilished & Sons and ring the bell – with a huge pile of random drawings in my hand!

  • Billy

    I beg to differ just because. I thought this was Established & Sons strongest Milan so far tho I didnt like the Jasper Morrison designs

  • What

    I think he just rented Disney’s Monsters Inc. and got inspired…badly.

  • It’d be hard to match up with any other kind of furniture. So… I love it.

    Maarten thinks he can make everything now he’s got the succes,. and maybe, maybe he’s right about that…..
    He can make everything, just like everyone of us, …. Only, Maarten does it….
    It’s like a poker game isn’t it Maarten, “All in,……or nothing”

    Fine but not excellent for the kids playroom.

  • I’m honestly not sure what to make of this. Don’t know if he’s really reaching, or laughing at us. Or both. Either way, he does continue to surprise people…without question. That alone is valuable.
