On The Rocks Sofa from Moss.
Harper's Bazaar ran an article recently entitled "Gucci or Gas?". They discussed the effect our economy is having on consumers' ability to purchase big-ticket items or "investment pieces". Accompanying the article, they showed how you could purchase an entire outfit for the cost of one pair of Louboutins. So I decided to do a little experiment.
Take a look at the sofa above. Cool? Modern? Minimalist? Yes, yes, and yes. It's also $21, 170. Now, let's see what else you could get with that much money...
Lemme break it down for you.
21,170 dollars will buy you one sofa from Moss or...

And you'd still have enough left for a Starbucks.
You do the math.
