Do your papers fly all around your office all day? Yeah, ours don't either, so we've never really seen the point of a paperweight. But Lanvin made one anyway, and it's really cute, eve if it is just a 4"x4" Perspex dome with a colorful lady sitting inside it. A cute paperweight is the kind of thing our grandmother used to call a "conversation piece." But in this case it costs £275, or $437, so that conversation would probably begin: "You are out of your freaking mind." [Browns, via A Wee Bit Skint]
