Hey ladies and gents! I had the awesome privilege to tour the set of Ugly Betty a few months ago and have been obsessing over some of the things I saw, in particular a very Super Mario-esque toadstool in Betty's apartment, as seen here:
As a geeky girl, I love what I interpret as a subtle nod to video games and since I've recently re-done a room in my apartment with layers of varying greens and neutral browns I would love this unexpected pop of red color. I've been looking on Etsy and have come up unsuccessful and the girl who gave the tour wasn't sure where it came from (though she did note the set design department shopped a lot at Ikea, CB2, west elm, etc.). I did sit on it and it was quite comfy though frankly I'd use it as a footstool more than likely (or a decorative touch). If anyone could help me I'd be over the moon!
To see my suggestions,
Hi Joliz! Cute find. I've done a little digging and found some Mushroom Toadstools ($80) from Etsy seller Royal Kane. It's not the same stool — it has less of a mushroom shape — but they're made with treated wood logs, a red polka-dot seat cushion, and an artificial plastic grass base, which I think are all adorable.
The Hoosier Mushroom Company also sells a Toadstool Stool ($50), which has a more authentic mushroom shape. But it doesn't have the cute polka-dots!
Hope this helps. Anyone else have suggestions?
