In the 1960s, artisan Wendell Castle of Rochester, N.Y. created a sturdy smile (or at least a portion of one).
This white fiberglass sofa, designed to resemble molars, lists at $3,500 today on Craig’s List. Judging by its photo, its owner must be an advocate for excellent oral health.
Castle, considered by some the “father of the art furniture movement,”  garnered a Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Design from the Brooklyn Museum of Art/ Modernism.
