I'll take my Modern in moderation

I had come into the furniture store merely to buy a coffee table, and here I stood, beset lay conflicting periods of design.

How to get a home that lets yon take it easy

Be comfortable and relax. That's the trend today. There are fewer unlived-in living rooms, and more family rooms.
