Yesterday a brave Martha Stewart Living employee brought the company's prison-like office decor to our attention. (No personal photos!) And now, hilariously, Martha is so upset about this that she's talking and talking about it!
Not only did she open her show with a discussion of this scandalous, gossipy office design blog post; she also linked to it on her own blog, and struck back:
I just want to say that this Gawker.com article is a misrepresentation of what actually was discussed within our offices. The list of pens is an assortment of what our company will provide our employees with at our expense. We never stated that other pens were not allowed to be used. In these tough economic times, harmony is essential within the working environment. I must also inform you that we use a great assortment of writing implements from the Martha Stewart crafts line available at Michael's Crafts and Walmart.
We would never doubt that you buy all your supplies at Wal-Mart, Martha! Does this mean we can say we're "Locked in a feud" with Martha Stewart now? Let's hope so! Thank you for the traffic, Martha, but really a few MC Escher posters on the walls would clear this right up. [Previously]
