Ugly Wardrobes vs. Good Design: What would you choose?

By | October 14, 2008

What would you choose for your apartment? Some modern furniture or classic pieces?

We’ve tended to focus much more on style than on which kind or category of furniture… We definitely prefer simplicity of design and function prefering pieces made of one or two materials that don’t dominate a room because of color, design or size. In fact, when I was in England, I was rudely reminded of how furniture is often SQUEEZED into rooms without thought for what it is, where it goes or what it looks like. A good example: huge, ugly and cumbersome wardrobes that stick right into the middle of rooms, causing people to have to walk around them and look away. I much prefer the American solution to wardrobes: the walk-in wardrobe that has a door you can close behind you!
