HOW TO CHOOSE A DOCTOR

Your doctor can be the most important friend you have, so it makes sense to choose one carefully. But the fact is, lots of people choose their doctors for patently absurd reasons.

Here and on the next four pages we'll show you how to use the power of pattern and color to pull together a miscellany of sofas, tables, chairs, what have you.
