Good Quotes: Traditional Furniture

Pin it button big

“As in politics, this furniture is not traditional and conservative but is an imitation of past furniture. The appearance of the past represents status by invoking a higher class in the past than the purchaser is in in the present. The imitation old furniture symbolises up and the imitation modern symbolises forward. Usually the first is in the home and the second is in the office, sometimes one or the other in both, and seldom the reverse.”

-- Donald Judd - American sculptor
