Miss Pokeno

Alannah Currie, one third of one of my all time favorite bands, The Thompson Twins, has long left the pop music world behind and reinvented herself .

Under the moniker "Miss Pokeno", Alannah, dubbed an "armchair destructivist", now re-creates furniture by combining upholstery and taxidermy. Her collection of furniture is, in a word: surreal.

Here's a red velvet armchair that she designed, with the back cut away to reveal two entwined foxes.

All of the animals in her work are either road kill or died naturally. Click here to check out some of her other pieces of work.

Here's a video of The Thompson Twins that brings back so many good memories of a simpler time in my life.

ps: I'm still holding out for a Twins Reunion Tour!

I love the Thompson Twins, but a chair stuffed with dead animals? My luck would be to get the only one with zombie animals that would ravage the apartment....
