When I saw the above photo of the $342 Kartell Stepladder (2000) I laughed outloud, which is good, because it means I'm not drinking the proverbial design Koolaid (well, not too much anyway). The crazy thing is, I found more...more stepladders! There's also the below $384 Flo Stepladder (2001), which if you could take away the price and that silly set it was shot with, looks pretty cool. This post wasn't supposed to be a weird senior-citizen rant, but below is a simple, fine looking, functional Leifheit Homestep 2-Step Ladder from Target and the price? $45.
