FURNITURE & WORKS OF ART
FROM ANTIQUITY TO MODERNITY
'YOU SHOULD ONLY BUY SOMETHING BECAUSE IT GIVES YOU PLEASURE:
BECAUSE IT'S INGENIOUS, BEAUTIFUL OR HAS SENTIMENTAL ASSOCIATIONS;
NEVER BECAUSE YOU WANT TO CREATE A GOOD IMPRESSION
OR PASSIONLESSLY MAKE AN INVESTMENT FOR FUTURE GAIN'
- TERENCE CONRAN
