What's your favourite piece of furniture at home? Mine has to be my magnificent 1930s mangle, a stunning industrial-era atrefact I snapped up for only 120 kr (9, $15) at an auction this summer. I guess no-one else bought it cause it weighs at a guess three of four hundred kilos, but it's a true beauty in glorious green.

Proof that great set-pieces don't have to be expensive!

Here it is in all its glory

did I mention my girlfriend doesn't like it? I'm not really sure why.

that's a tool, not furniture... bad copycat

Why the fuck would you want a piece of "furniture" like that? You don't people an English wheel in your dining room do you?

It's gorgeous. It's a table, a talking piece, an aesthetic object and a still fully functioning mangle, all in one.

Mangle is a great name though.

As Dudley Moore once sang 'I haven't laughed so much since Aunty Mable got her left tit caught in the mangle'

perhaps that's why your girlfriend doesn't like it, she fears it

It's a bit over the top for a coffee table, isn't it?

One of my mates uses a similar one for his computer desk.

Dry clothing, mostly. But yeah. Sheets, tablecloths, kitchen towels, everything that looks nicer flat than wrinkly basically. You can also press trousers with it, apparently.

It presses pants? What an amazing piece of furniture. In the past I had to use some eletronimical device called an iron.

Ok, I'm not foolin' anyone. I don't iron.
