amleto. ironing. board.

I never thought I'd be blogging an ironing board on Funfurde, but (takes a deep breath) here I go: The Amleto is a seriously good-looking package. I won't say it makes ironing boards cool, but it comes as close as anything's ever going to.

style. elegance.
The Amleto looks pretty good when it's set up for ironing, and surprisingly it looks even better when it's hanging on the wall. The frame is made of anodized silver, which gives it a hip, stylish look, and the feet have been ingeniously shaped so they add a touch of elegance. When it's collapsed for storage, the feet bookend the top and bottom nicely, giving it a non-traditional (and dare I say "pleasing") ironing board look.

i. sort. of. want. one.
I like the Amleto so much I might actually leave it out not because I'm lazy (the usual reason I don't put ironing boards away) but because I like seeing it. And I'd buy one in a minute if it were reasonably priced and not $335. Yes, that's right, $335. For an ironing board. Sigh.

Whatever happened to a good old-fashioned $10 four-foot 1x8 board laying on two folding chairs?!

Okay, even an aluminum sheet in the same size (not an inch thick though). $335 for an ironing board (it's an IRONING BOARD) is just plain extravagant.

Not bad this design. It's function seen "good to use". Expecially when it hanging on the wall, don't you think that it save a lot of space?

That I must admit. It does save space. Generally I think that's a good thing.

On the other hand, I'm a guy that likes to fix things when they break. When it gets too small, it becomes impossible to even get apart, let alone fix. :)

For something so stylish, you'd think it'd be more practical! It's no wider than the usual ironing board, it doesn't come with a sleeve part, etc. I'm not impressed.
