Just because you’re a cartoon empire does not mean that you cannot go into the furniture business, and just because your Disney store is a very modest success among toddlers in this part of the world does not mean you have got to make a Mickey out of tables and chairs.
When I read that Disney was going into furniture, I was, like you, skeptical. I was thinking of wing-back chairs with, you guessed it, mouse ears! So it was with much relieve that Disney has collaborated with the Italian firm Cappellini to produce some fine furniture albeit still somewhat toon-town cheery. I imagine someone like Tavi Gevinson would swoon over them.
