Michael Jackson Wired Interior Design Ideas

TMZ just published a few pictures with all sorts of flamboyantly bizarre furniture that Michael Jackson spent more than $700,000 before he died. All these unique pieces of furniture were ordered for a London mansion he was supposed to live in during the run of his “This Is It” tour … but he died before the Italian furniture maker Colombostile could deliver the goods. These pieces of furniture are unique, colorful and wild…just like Michael. Finally what do you think about Michael Jackson interior design taste ?

    Really weird but then again, it’s Michael. He is always original.

    I’ve never seen anything as awful as this stuff!! Really a peak of bad taste.

  • Juste January 15, 2010 at 12:13 PM Login to Reply →

    Typical American distasteful, fake-baroque ,kitschy rich-people junk! It’s too ugly to contemplate. As a designer I’d blatantly refuse to produce such atrocious junk.

    Hmph. I not only sneer at the ornateness of the furniture, I sneer at the people who purchase such trash, and in fact, it is so distasteful, I regret I must extend that sneer to include the entire nation.

    That it is imported is not important.

    I just say, ‘each to his/her own…’ and leave it at that! :D

    Like his work – he appreciates art and all the hard work that goes into each piece – be it elaborate or not – I think he focused on the artist behind the piece in his flamboyant choices.

    just shows how wacked out he was

    I find it funny how Juste and Sobi have such hate-filled reactions to this furniture. I personally found it interesting to see what he liked. Michael Jackson was an amazing performer. He also grew up and out of terrible poverty – to become a gentle person with an amazing gift for pop-music. Sad how something like a chair or a table can bring out such racist, hateful commentary.

    Sobi and Juste, I don’t know what your taste in furniture is. I know how bad your manners are.

    over-the-top…but then so was MJ. I miss him.

    Love the leopard. I have to-die-for tropical animal skin print furniture myself. It is a nice contrast with my blonde hair and blue eyes. My Zebra print purse is another instance of how I take the jungle out with me. I just suppose Micael was going back to his roots — mine unfortunately are just on my skalp.

    It’s not my taste, but apparently MIchael liked it, so what’s wrong with that…. Sobi you just sound like a nasty person…

  • Luke @ Fabric Shower Curtains February 11, 2010 at 14:30 PM Login to Reply →

    I still can’t believe he is gone. It still hasn’t really sunk in after nearly a year. RIP MJ, we all love you. x

    These pieces of furniture are great works of ART that does not have to go with a theme of a living room or dining room. These works can stand alone on its own as they are! I bet the least sophisticated or ART educated person would “GET IT” if they saw it in someone’s home and appreciate them as they are…even a child! Sobe and Juste are entitled to their opinion, however, they didn’t have to be so ugly about it. I suspect that their opinion was not based on the furniture but something else entirely.
    Give it a rest guys, the man is dead already.

  • Zenn February 23, 2010 at 10:00 AM Login to Reply →

    lol @ Just and Sobi. To take one pop star’s taste and attribute it to a whole nation is ignorant and downright silly. Neither of you have any class. It’s okay to dislike his taste in furniture. It’s okay to say you won’t produce a work like that. It is not, however, acceptable for you to insult a dead man, or an entire country just because of a famous person’s taste. Next time, save the energy and just don’t comment, unless you are going to stick to opinion on JUST the items/question posted.

    That said, yeah, the furniture is way too ornate for my taste. However, I’m not a pop star, and I don’t have 700k to blow on furniture. You can tell he liked the glitz and glam (either that, or he felt like he was always on display and that’s what he thought would impress people)…

  • Sandy February 23, 2010 at 12:58 PM Login to Reply →

    Michael spent a great deal of time in the Arabian states where much of the furniture is over the top in ornate gold wrapped and other such displays of wealth. No one ever said that money gives you class….this is a true case of too much…..Elvis was just as bad – a quick visit to Graceland will prove it, just check out his monkey room, or the tv room. It’s a shame the interior decorators helping them knew more about how to relieve them of their money then how to help them invest in timeless pieces that would appreciate in value and educate them to the refineness of classic antiques. May MJ and Elvis rest in peace.

    Excellent taste! I knew he had it!

  • M. Brown, Overstock customer February 23, 2010 at 15:12 PM Login to Reply →

    Overstock I’m not sure if posting “Michael Jackson’s Bizarre Furniture” is a publicity ploy or someone’s funny joke. But to still keep up or entice negative comments against a dead person (whom many loved) is on line of bad taste. Farrah Fawcett who died around the same time had a family (the O’Neals) and son who have had many bad times, but do you “entice” customers to post comments about the “druggie family?” Your racism is showing through also when you try to take away the history this Pop Icon made through the years.
    I am a customer and didn’t believe Overstock would stoop this low. Watch Out in the future, your sales could be affected.

    Juste- it is sooo YESTERDAY to equate being American with general bad taste- I don’t think you are a designer, probably just a wannabe. A talented designer would know better, and probably have better, more adult manners.

  • Lora February 23, 2010 at 15:53 PM Login to Reply →

    One word comes to mind over and over looking at each piece – ornate.

  • Carla February 23, 2010 at 21:25 PM Login to Reply →

    I’d say it’s very ecletic, very “over the top”, but then again, it’s Michael Jackson! The man had a strong sense of style, taste and he was so talented! He’s gone too soon, it’s too bad. He gave us wonderful music, and his talent was evident. I actually like the wall table with wings, and the big red sofa and “royal chair”. I wouldn’t have it in my home, for someone of MJ’s stature, I could see how furniture like this could fit. The main thing is to have respect for individual tastes. None of us fit into a single mold, and neither does our furniture tastes!

    Dear Sue…
    How is it that Juste and Sobi’s comments are being read as “racist”- sounds like you have chip on your own shoulder..

  • yayah February 26, 2010 at 00:58 AM Login to Reply →

    such good furniture but they turn it in to such trash btw im ayanna aka yayah

  • Terri February 26, 2010 at 01:18 AM Login to Reply →

    Who are we to judge! To each his own. Are you for real? Now that you can’t rip MJ apart any longer, you’re going after his furniture? Let the man AND his furniture rest in peace! All of us wished we had his money to even entertain the idea of purchasing one piece of that furniture whether we liked it or not.

    I like some of this stuff. When you have that kind of money, why not?

  • Sarah February 26, 2010 at 19:50 PM Login to Reply →

    Well, I’m a genealogist, and I have seen that many Americans are descended from royalty or nobility, and blacks are no exception, except they also have sometimes unknown roots in Africa that could also be royal. Also we all have roots that go back to less wealthy, more folksy people, as well. All of this is reflected in Michael Jackson’s taste. Also, the rock star is prevalent. It is a tale of how he lived and who he was. I think it’s interesting, and, though I might not be comfortable with all that pattern and glitz, I can really see him rockin’ out in it!

  • Marianne February 27, 2010 at 18:53 PM Login to Reply →

    Like most of us – I couldn’t imagine having this sort of stuff in my home – but I can just imagine how delighted MJ would be to find each of these pieces and how much enjoyent he got out of them. If you look under the over-the-top and sometimes downright gunky ornamentation, the furniture looks functional and comfortable. It would be fun to visit him.

  • michelle oTangO February 27, 2010 at 23:47 PM Login to Reply →

    Michael certainly had flamboyant taste.
    The pictures can not convey the elegance and elemental craftsmanship of such pieces.

    Items of this nature are made by highly skilled artisians and will last centuries. Quality is evident.

    Not my particular style but I can appreciate the uniqueness of the the pieces. I would love to have the rug

    In a world of cookie cutter Machouses and bland offerings, these are wonderful.

    Oh pulleeeze people – this furniture is nothing more than a overblown selfagrandizing statement from someone whose ego was so huge he named himself the King of Pop. I’m sorry to pull out the whole ‘people are starving in Africa’ cliche, but it’s true, and to spend this kind of money on your furniture when others are living in houses with dirt floors is offensive and disgusting. The whole Jackson clan seems to think that they are God’s gift, but in the words of Mr. Stevie Wonder ‘You haven’t done nuthin!’

    Thank god it wasn’t Crate & Barrel or Pottery Barn furniture. That would have crushed me!

    What a bunch of crap. I guess when you sodomize children you lose all taste for design.

    Only a low class black person would order garbage like that.

  • phillygirl57 March 2, 2010 at 19:32 PM Login to Reply →

    This kind of purchase is a result of an unstable mind. When you clearly know that people are starving and probably will never see a decent home yet furniture and you purchase some crap like this you know there is something wrong. We have created monsters in this entertainment field.
    God said enough is enough. No amount of money can lengthen your days on this planet.

  • romeo March 3, 2010 at 00:19 AM Login to Reply →

    This looks like Michael’s homage to himself as the princess of pop. Perhaps furniture ideas taken from a Saudi palace?

  • Bond, James Bond March 3, 2010 at 05:32 AM Login to Reply →

    This is the complete opposite of those people who try to purchase expensive looking furniture, for the least amount of money possible (IKEA). This is expensive furniture… that looks really cheap. If thats what he was going for, he nailed it. The design and craftmanship appear to be a cross between goodwill and costco.

    Interesting,colorful, yet decadent as if he was in the 17th century.

    I love you all and always will. The afterlife is everything that I hoped it would be. Even the little boys run around nude. Please buy my furniture knowing that more than a few real life cherrubs spent time with me on these. Some people may think it’s all a bit garnish and I would have to agree, but in the end it got the job done.

    the pieces shown are ugly as sin. i will say this though, if i was worth 1 billion or more, i would buy useless ugly crap too. what else are you going to do with that kind of money.

    To all of you who don’t have experience with the top brands in furniture supply: ( as I have being a professional Interior Designer who always travels to world’ fairs ) all these pieces are from Colombostile,Neither American Nor Arabic but an Italian company,
    And IT IS fit for the King of POP, for most of their clients are Royalties and Presidents, from around the world.
    As for the Weird finishes the whole collection has, It is selected By the King of Pop himself!! Standard procedure of Colombostile.
