Octo-Anthropologie (part 2)
June 3, 2010
Back at the beginning of the year, I wrote this post about some octopus-themed products I spotted at my local Anthropologie store. In the last month or so, several new products have been making the rounds within the Tumblr-o-sphere (well, the parts of it that are obsessed with cephalopods at least), and I figured it was time for a follow-up.
These are all rather, um…high-end, and I’ve listed them in order of ascending price. Once you get down to the amazing octopus sofa, forty-eight dollars for a metal coat hook won’t seem so bad…
Let spindly tentacles grab your jacket as you walk into your foyer or your robe as you enter the bath.
