What to Look for in a Quality Sofa

At a recent client presentation, I explained the importance of furniture construction and my client turned to me and said “You know, that’s what no one talks about anymore…..quality.” It’s true.  We’re bombarded with low prices in the race to the bottom with Wayfair, Overstock, and Ikea.  People think Restoration Hardware is high quality because […]

I first heard of the term ‘wabi sabi’ while visiting Taiwan.  Wabi-sabi was explained to me as a deep appreciation of things that are imperfect and impermanent.  In a world seemingly filled with Instagram influencers hawking ‘perfection,’ I embrace things that are perfect in their imperfection.  Perfectly imperfect.

They’re referring to High Point Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina.
