Carpet naming #Life

So this morning at breakfast, I was flipping through the Lowe's ad insert in the paper.

They have some very goofy sink fixtures. (Alternate picture from the manufacturer, since this blog will probably outlive the weekly ad on the Lowe's Web site.) And some goofy sinks, for that matter (alternate link). Why on earth would you want a sink that sits on top of the counter?

No, don't tell me. I don't really want to know.

Some of the names of carpet patterns are really amusing. Royalty Moonshadow. Shaw Intrigue. Coronet Ravishing Beauty (ironically enough, this is a particularly ugly pattern — even on paper, it makes my eyes hurt). I like this one: Mohawk King Lear. That's an interesting mental image, isn't it?

(Sorry, no alternate links for the carpets — the main Lowe's Web site doesn't acknowledge the existence of carpet. And these particular patterns don't seem to exist on their manufacturers' Web sites, either. Interesting...)

Some of the tile pattern names are amusing, too. DaVinci Fossil Mosaic. Jennie's comment: "Just what I need. Some dead guy's bones in my bathroom."
