Home furnishings and home decor bring function and beauty to a space, but is that always the point?
Sometimes in the decorative discovery phase of design and decorating we stumble upon a particular piece that catches the eye, and perhaps for a brief moment takes our breath away.
Thoughts of practicality and function never enter into the picture.
It’s love at first sight, and all that is left to do is find the perfect place in the perfect space.
These gotta have it pieces serve the most important purpose of this thing we call decor- to make our homes a beautiful place to be.
I know I am not above putting decorative value first and function second in certain situations.
The design, lines and form of beauty often trump the ace of function.
As my favorite composer wrote and my all time favorite singer sang, “A chair is still a chair even when there’s no one sitting there.”
The intrinsic value of a chair is function, but some chairs simply do not exist by function alone.
There are many antique, vintage, designer and unique accent chairs that qualify as absolute works of art.
Even with my background and experience in the world of antiques, there are times when I have to consult with Dave the Builder or another source to dot the i’s and cross the t’s of period and provenance.
Between the excitement of auction and the flame and ribbon of mahogany, you can easily get your barley twisted.
