Don't we all want a garish kitchen just a little bit? Like the bathroom, the kitchen is one of the few places where you can display items of questionable taste and get away with it.

These salt and pepper shakers by David Shrigley, for example, turn your standard S&P into cocaine and heroin. That'll make some eyes open at Thanksgiving!

Implications - While the subject of drugs may have been taboo just a few decades ago, now pop culture is saturated with drug use imagery. If cocaine and heroine salt and pepper shakers are socially acceptable, one must ask themselves where the boundaries of product design and marketing actually are.
