25 Perflexing interior design choices that make zero sense

Home decoration is highly personal, as these people with very specific tastes can tell you. The things that you love to have in your home might baffle other people.

'Who even designs these?': 20+ Design flops

The difference between good design and poor design is in the eye of the beholder. For example, let's say you want a staircase in your newly built home. How hard could that be to execute? It's probably pretty straightforward, unless you want something fancy. Maybe you're a wealthy multi-millionaire with money to burn and a desire to impress your artsy friends. Then perhaps you give your designers some artistic leeway. It's shocking how many interestingly designed staircases are out there in the…

25+ Flawed designs made for people with terrible taste

Sometimes you see a product online that makes you go, “Who in their right mind would ever buy this?” It seems like some products are just made for nobody.
