New from Unica Home is the ‘Pug with Velvet Bag’ lamp ($4,595) by Dietlind Priess. Per the website, the lamp is ‘an amalgam of fantasy, artistry, and humor.’ Besides the crazy canine expression, the pup is also sporting human hands. The figure reposes upon a velvet doggie bed–thus the ‘With Velvet Bag’ part–which, when touched, produces a barking sound. According to Priess, she strives for ‘technical perfection that produces a riot of scintillating visual excitement. Like a sort of all-year-round Christmas tree.’ Yeah, but Christmas trees generally don’t give me the creeps.
