Lace Tape

I often wonder if it's necessary to make all things beautiful if given the chance. Is it ever the case that some things should remain basic and unembellished? I believe if you had to choose between two equally priced items, you'd choose the prettiest of the two. To me picking pretty is a default tendency - even if you are deciding on something as dull as packaging tape.  Case in point: Lace Tape by Boiler Design. Designer Karl Zahn notes that kings and aristocrats used to stick lace on everything, and their product is merely a modern day equivalent to such a frivolous statement. How clever! I certainly never thought I'd fall victim to the allure of packaging tape.
