Top Design, Episode Seven: "Room of the Future"

Top Design, Episode Seven: "Room of the Future"

With only six designers remaining, competition is getting stiff on Top Design. India Hicks reiterates this point when she meets with the designers at the beginning of this episode, and then quickly launches into the challenge: Imagine the year is 2108, and the designers must design the room of the future.

To realize their visions, the designers are given $7,000 to spend, the use of carpenters, paint, and fabrics, and two and a half days to plan and execute their rooms. Unfortunately, the designers, who've been asked to let their imaginations run wild, have shown themselves to be less than creative in past challenges, instead playing it safe.

It was revealing to see where the designers' minds went when asked to brainstorm the future. Eddie latched onto cloning, Andrea sketched out family-oriented portable pod housing, and Ondine developed design solutions to accommodate global warming.

Did anyone else find it interesting that the designers shopped for the future at a mid-century modern store?

To find out who won, and who we had to bid adieu,

.

As the designers frantically attempted to get their rooms together, India Hicks popped in to challenge the designers to a Pop Design quiz, with Jonathan Adler quizzing the designers on "the real deals" in design classics. The challenge reminded me a lit of my less or more posts . . . Nathan won, though he definitely wasn't one of the six who needed immunity, given his past performances.

I loved Ondine's concept, though her room didn't quite live up to the ideas. Nathan's room read as both elegant and inventive, and Preston's traveling hotel room was very slick.

In the end, Natalie was sent home for her poorly planned room, and Preston won for his futuristic hotel suite. (The real winner, in my opinion though, was the Top Design audience, for getting to see Kelly Wearstler's amazing ensemble.) Who did you think deserved to go home? Did you react strongly to any of the rooms?

Does anyone know where I could find Ondine's lamp in the corner of her room? It looks like a floor lamp in some sort of wood, maybe teak and then a hanging sort of globe. It might even be attatched to a table, I couldn't see it finished. Pretty please help, I've googled it for a week now and I can't find it even on bravo's webpage. =)

I love Kelly Wearslter's design but she really looked wierd on this episode. what was The dress might have been tolerable without the little kid socks and that crazy hat. I give her kudos for being brave enoiugh to go for it though.

I loved Preston's room, I was glad he did something interesting with lights. Any of the bottom three could have gone, so I didn't really care who, although I liked the girl who went the best personally out of all those. Eddie is not only a snobby brat, but he's a bit crazy. Who wants to go to get clones and be reminded of a bloody crime scene?

I always wait for someone to make a comment or at least give Kelly a once over when she approaches for judging. Kudos to them for keeping a straight face! She totally owns it and looks great, though I tried to convince myself that the hat was very strange ;) I wasn't too blown away with anyone's entire design and execution, but I agreed with the judge. Natalie's lever thing was just chincy and had me shaking my head...I knew that was bad news. I was starting to feel for Teresa and that IKEA lamp...I have been there girlfriend!!

*kelly has hat and hair issues, for the next show they need to design her a new outfit. *Box fans, are never a good choice for any room, especially the room of the future....tacky *natalies room was straight out of imaginationland, a lever for a platform to move up and down, to do what? i didnt understand her concept at all. *Rickette Shroder needs to go soon also, if i have to friggin see that photo of her and her husband again i will gag. *johnathan adler, that lamp isnt worth 340 $ just saying. the ikea one looked better

I love Kelly Wearstler, but she is insane. I don't understand how the contestants and other judges can converse with her and maintain a straight face. I'm sad you don't have any pictures of Preston's room. I loved his white textured wall.
