Was once describing a certain
"It's the most beautiful desk
I ever saw," she exclaimed.
"Exquisitely carved, polished
like a mirror, and so slender
and graceful! It has only one
defect it wobbles when you
write on it."
Our furniture isn't carved
or slender or highly polished.
But it doesn't "wobble."
It's made for use.
At the same time, it has all
the beauty we can give it
through well-balanced propor
tions, good materials, rich col
oring, and careful finish.
