Build Me Up, Buttercup

So if you ever walked into a Lladro store, you'd think it was so old lady. Whatever, you would never walk into a Lladro store, right? But really, the main problem with Lladro ornaments is having too many of them. You could have one awesome statue of a porcelain parrot sitting among a zoo of other kitschy-cool items (I dunno, say, this Kartell lamp and a couple of these fashiony frames) and I think that would be okay. But then you put all the porcelain parrots in a row with some more porcelain monkeys, bluebirds and other stupid animals and the environment of irony has just disappeared and it's something your grandma would collect again. And of course, Lladro stores are all filled with Lladro stuff, ergo, it looks stupid.

Anyway, the moral of this story is, with the right environment, these Lladro vases, shaped like buildings, would be awesome with flowers sprouting forth from their pinnacles. Consider it, if you have the US$400 to spare, at The Future Perfect.
