While partying with the Travelocity gnome, he was in town on a PR mission and showed up at a club after a day of skiing **(literally, on skis, see below), I was struck my unexpected attraction to this funny little man. Do I need a likeness in my home? While pondering this question, I noticed there is a movie coming out starring a similar character. That sealed the deal- gnomes are IN! I don't want any "garden variety" gnome; he must be cute and fashion forward. Here are the contenders; what do you think?
Philippe Starck for Kartell is really what I have in mind,
Gnomes work equally as well in a traditional space as they do in a contemporary one; the same holds true for a kids room vs. a living room, outdoors or in. I never realized how practical he can be.

|A giant sculpture perhaps? I could see one in a clean, contemporary space.|
A lamp might be a consideration, or not
What do you think? Kitschy or cute?
