Stressed furniture

Here is a design trend that really needs dismissing before too many people are separated from too much of their money. I do not know if it has a name, but it seems comparable with ‘stressed jeans’ except for furniture. I have just replaced a pair of stressed jeans because they have worn out (afer 8 years). The knees have holes in them and I do not think that I can pull off the stressed look with any credibility.

Unfortunately having seen this, subsequently, I found many examples of the look ranging from beds, tables, bookshelves, indeed any wooden furniture.
