With all the choices that could have been made, why would anyone decorate in beige? How did beige become the new ... colour? I have been shopping for new furniture lately, and I have been to every furniture store in the Lower Mainland looking for something -- anything -- with a splash of color, to no avail. The only choices offered are brown, beige, tan, or as an alternative, beige, tan, brown. So I wasn't surprised to see the redecoration of the Oval Office revealed the other day -- I'm sure the folks there didn't have much to choose from either. The chesterfields (sofas) look like two-for-one specials from The Brick.
"Buy one, get the other half-off and we'll throw in a 52 inch HDTV..."
Here is a challenge to the furniture designers of the world. Start making furniture that is actually attractive and has some colour. You remember colour, don't you?
As for that coffee table, well ... the less said, the better ...
