Cool Idea: National Geographic Home Collection

Palecek established the National Geographic Home Collection to celebrate authentic designs of artisan traditions and their countries of origin. What's even better is that net proceeds from the National Geographic Home Collection go to the World Cultures Fund, created to support the work of archaeologists, cultural anthropologists, and artists. Again, awesome.

Even though I definitely think that this collection is a cool idea, the styling for this photo is a little over the top. Although I realize that the intent was to highlight as many of the collection's products as possible, the overall effect is a jumbled, world-traveler-with-no-editing-ability mess. Am I just being harsh, or do you, too, find the overall effect a little unsettling?

i agree. i think in this case less would be more. I like that the net proceeds go to the World Cultures Fund to support the archaeologists, anthropologists and artists. That's good news.

Some of the pieces are nice, but I agree that it's too much for the space.

yes, like they're trying too hard. I agree that I like alot of the things in the room, but all together just looks cheesy as freshpink said.

I agree, it is unsettling. I love Palecek, but I don't like the way this is styled either. You can see they were aiming for National Geographic look in an interior space, but it is cheesy. It has way too much wicker and rattan in one room. I think it could some editing!
