This shape is smart

I absolutely love the colour of this yellow dish, but am more ambivalent about the shape, which is self-consciously ugly when seen plain in the white or grey colour ways.

CANVAS

It reminds of the bit in The Girls of Slender Means where the narrator reflects that the dark brown wallpaper the girls hate in 1945 will be what they choose for themselves in 1963 “it having become smart”.

Sintra dish by Canvas Home, from their 2014 collection.
