DEXTER DINNERWARE!

DEXTER DINNERWARE!

IS IT JUST ME OR IS THIS WAY TOO CREEPY . . .

You'll be sure to make a splash of a dinner party when guests sit down on one of Amy Lau's limited edition Dexter dining room chairs. Inspired by the Showtime serial killer show, the chairs are made from white lacquered wood and upholstered in white ultraleather (i.e. vinyl). But what makes these chairs truly unusual are the hand-embroidered blood designs by Leah Picker, splashed front and back on each chair.

Amy created an entire macabre dining room for the recent Met Home Showtime House event, which transformed a Gramercy Park townhouse into six Showtime shows, through the innovation of modern designers. But now the Dexter chairs, as well as bloody dinner plates and dismembered flatware from the collection, are available to the public. While television-inspired design is a new one for us to ponder, it's one set that is guaranteed to lead to some interesting mealtime conversation.

Chairs range from $2500 for a side chair to $5000 for an arm chair (signed by the killer actor Michael C. Hall himself).

What the hell ever happened to good taste?

Actually, that would have been perfect a couple of weeks ago when a friend of mine held a murder mystery party. It would have been perfect, though, only for the party, no other time!
