the Best Tradition
assembled in an exceptional collection ... for
you- at Woodward & Lothrop ... in August,
traditional month for choosing home-making
furnishings with indoor days in view
In the same charm-plus-commonsense tradition that suited
Colonial furniture to the early American scene, Georgian furni
ture to more leisurely living and Victorian tat a lush and tranquil
era . . . modern furniture adapts itself to your way of life. In
smaller rooms, its clean, uncluttered lines add a sense of spa
ciousness. Its design is as functional as your clothes must be
... its accent, too, is on color and quality. So we believe in
modern, as an expression-of your viewpoint, and underscore our
belief with a growing collection ... for your choice.
