You Say Tomato, I Say "Have a Seat!"


Here's something far more interesting than a post about actual tomatoes...

For your viewing pleasure and contemplation: The Tomato Chair.

According to stardust.com, website of the Sonoma, CA modern home furnishings retailer, "The Tomato Chair is a flexible, fun, and funky way to sit in style. In a rainbow of colors these chairs will not only brighten up your room, they'll brighten up your day." Maybe so. But if my husband found out I'd spent $885 for a tomato (and that's the current 'on sale' price), my day would definitely darken!

Silly as they seem, if I could hang out in a scene like this, next to a cool pool on a grassy lawn and get away from this 100+ degree weather we're having, I'd gladly sit on a tomato.

Very fun although, you're right, a little too much money to pay just for the fun of it!

Interesting seating and cute idea in an outdoor setting.

Ha! Too funny. I haven't seen these before. Those are pretty pricey tomatoes! :-)

I recall another selling point about these chairs is that they will float in the pool or can be used as a sled down a snowy hill. Still... can they be worth that $$$ much?
