Sleeping Pigs Don’t Lie When It Comes to Pushing Product At Design Stores


Your life will never be the same once you’ve cast your eyes upon the infamous Sleeping Pig by George Chang for Auto, featured as a best-seller in “Best Sellers and Bombs, and What Stores Are Betting On” in yesterday’s NY Times House & Home.

Flip through the slideshow to see picks from stores across the country–it’s very interesting to see what made it and what didn’t, especially when it comes to brand-name designers: They’re betting on Tord Boontje‘s new table for Moroso, but two Hella Jongerius pieces bombed (like the poor Hella Hippo), as did glassware by Karim Rashid, while John Derian‘s decoupage projects fared well with skeletons but not with playing cards.
