Everyday Objects

I am always intrigued by the beauty of everyday objects. I just love how Boex designed this award winning, quirky Pencil Bench to incorporate an everyday office object into a piece of furniture! The pencils can be removed and used! Now which one had the nice sharp point again?

A bit like sitting on a bed of nails :-)
I wonder how strong this is under the weight of some really heavy bottoms???
Always nice to have a look at your blog, Denise. Hope the kiggans are all well.

Bev! Nice to hear from you! I know I would only sit on the bench when I was alone and then v..e..r..y.. slowly! Love to the Dolds!

Ha ha. I'm sure it's terribly uncomfortable and not meant to be used at all!

Office furniture you say? Could you use the bench with points side up for co-workers you don't appreciate that much?

Corine....just what I was thinking. Really though, this is lovely!
