JESSICA: I think it’s pretty snazzy, but if I actually had it in my home I would be driven to madness attempting to “clean” it.
BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN: Most of the time splatter paint on furniture makes me want to shoot it with a machine gun or set it on fire in the middle of a tiny island where there are no trees to harm or wildlife to displace. To do it right, it really takes a skilled artist. Splatter paint is 100% about balance. Negative space is the trick. And keeping the palette tight. Stick with three colors or several shades of the same color: violet, plum, grape, all against a black or silver fabric.
SARAH: I can envision this chair in my home (as an accidental DIY project that would also feature Cheetos orange-colored finger prints). It would look fabulous in my kids’ playroom.
KAYLA: If it doesn’t look like that foyer above, then all I can think about is this:
Splatter chair, you’re no Jackson Pollock.
It just looks like the floor hasn’t been swept in 8 to 10 months. There’s a reason Jackson Pollock painted a canvas, not his floorboards.
MARIANNE: Those floors are making me twitchy.
JESSICA: At the end of the year we should have a splatter paint party with all the Colors of the Month.
LIZ: Yes! It will be just like this.
