I can’t decide whether this is a brilliant design maneuver, or a horrifically offensive abuse of a beautiful musical instrument. Cynthia Rowley’s living room is showcased in this month’s Elle Decor, and in it, she has a gorgeous, gold baby grand piano that she (or, someone) has taken apart in order to make it a receptacle for bottles of bubbly.

What to think? I mean, it looks amazing, but that’s quite an expensive instrument to turn into a bucket for alcohol. And it also seems like a slap in the face to those of us who would kill for a gold baby grand piano in our living rooms, on which to…you know…play music.
