Transcendent coffee art.

In the hands of Benjamin Shine, a piece of tulle isn't just for making fancy dresses and curtains. Using nothing but an iron, the British artist turns the fabric into amazingly realistic "paintings".

Shine sculpts, presses and pleats the huge single piece of tulle, whose transparent qualities give the portrait more texture and depth. By layering in this way, the artist obtains different tones and shadows that enable him to realistically depict everything from objects to portraits.

So cool looking, so impossible to keep clean in a not hermetically sealed ordinary household!

It's cool looking but it pushes my "Danish Modern" button, and that causes an involuntary nope-nope-nope reaction.

Lol yes.

i'm not sure many people could accommodate furniture like that in their lives. It doesn't look strong enough to store any amount of weight, is primarily useful as a changeable display unit, you couldn't keep anything on top of it. It's a clever box, and imo, that's all.

I've lived with so much crappy furniture over a lifetime, out of necessity (and still do - mistakes were made), I've developed a pretty critical approach to design. The pieces that have stayed with me are things like solid wooden dressers/bureaus/washstands from the 40s, a coffee and end table set in black wood with white formica(?) tops my parents bought in the 50s, a narrow profile office desk from the 30s. Newer furniture, often cheaply made, has not aged well. I'm also competing with my husband's taste, which is pretty different from mine, and is why we have a gigantic pine bed with exaggerated pointy-ended egg things on the head and footboard posts. It only fits in one inconvenient orientation.

Wondering what a 21st century remake of this would look like.

I think they'd have to use a different appliance.

The Martians were my favourite Sesame Street characters.

Yeah, I was trying to think what appliance it would be.  People put all sorts of stuff on timers and automation around the house, but what is as universal as an old landline telephone was back in the day?

An encounter with a roomba would be hilarious, though.

Oh yes, a Roomba! I was going through things, toaster, rice cooker, none of them had the same effect.
