BlindGossip – A youngish film actress we all know did a bit of furniture shopping over the weekend. She was in several high end stores – accompanied by a designer – focused specifically on purchasing a pair of modern sofas in the $10,000 and up range. She found a style she liked, chose a leather fabric from among the swatches, and was told that it would be ready in several months. The star said that the time frame was ridiculous, and wanted the custom pieces in her home within a week. The sales person – and her designer – very patiently and professionally explained the process of ordering, producing and shipping custom furniture, but the star persisted in her demands. At one point, she even asked them to give her the sofas for free. Her logic? “Everyone else gives me things for free”, and because “a lot of famous asses will be sitting on them.” She is one of them.
