Today's Word of the Day means...
Works of art and other objects (such as furniture) that are meant to look costly but actually are in poor taste.
Note: Kitsch in literature and music is associated with sentimentalism as well as bad taste.
Literature or art having little esthetic merit but appealing powerfully to popular taste: It stands unchallenged as a masterpiece of kitsch/ The closest I can come to America is through its Kitsch
[1925+; fr German, ''trash, rubbish'']
