Submitter’s comments: I’ve been into Carol House Furniture before and they have really nice stuff. In fact, their slogan is “because you like nice things.” Their website, though…well, let’s just say that it’s “because we like web pages that suck” and lemme tell ya, it does!
Vincent Flanders’ comments: When I went to their home page I discovered it was really a splash page–a splash page I couldn’t read because there wasn’t enough contrast between the text (#999) and the background (#FFF). Clicking the “Enter” button opens a new window and takes you to their Flash-based website. When it comes to websites, Flash is dead, dead, dead. The page also has two people talking at me. Nobody goes to a web page to have people talk at you. The top menu is not easy to read because the first line also lacks contrast.
If you click “Furniture Selection” and click “Bedrooms” and then “Bedspreads” and finally click “California Kids,” a new window opens and you’re taken to the California Kids website. The navigation is confusing.
