When I was working, one thing I could count on was a miserable cold from late September into October. An advantage to retirement is that I am no longer exposed to that concentration of germs in a confined space as one typically finds in a classroom. Colds have become a rare thing for me. The sound you hear now is me knocking on wood so as to not jinx myself be making a statement like that.
In the working days I bought tissues for the softness on my nose, but I was never immune to the look of the box. This designer development would indicate that I am not the only one to use tissue boxes as a piece of room decoration.
None of my tissue boxes are designer originals as far as I know, but I did think about what might go in each spot when I shopped for them.
Then, of course, there is the tall, round box designed to fit in my car cup holder. I think it would do with some design work myself, but it is convenient. Even though I don't have a cold, I do tend to sneeze every day--sensitive to smells, dust, etc.
I wonder with all the fashion lines attached to Hollywood celebrities and reality TV personalities, if real fashion designers with actual training and experience, like Isaac Mizrahi (whom I think is absolutely adorable) has to branch out to paper products just to make a living. Do you think?
