Once more, it’s a plunge headlong into questionable taste and a roundup of furniture and accessories that most of us should find irresistibly grotesque.

The original carvers of these Polynesian moai statues on Easter Island would be simply delighted to find that in the 500 years that passed, the best we could do with all our knowledge was to turn their design into a tissue dispenser. You might think it’s kind of cute, but it’s snot.
Texas Hold ‘Em
No way these chairs end up in my hacienda, cowboy! But maybe they’re your kind of thang. Surprise: they’re sold by the British-owned UK Contemporary Furniture. At some point, one hopes, the novelty will wear off.

Your friends will know what’s shakin’ if you install this brushed, polished aluminum door handle from the Netherlands. I find the whole thing just a little disturbing.
