Getting personal...



Some pieces of furniture are not only particular; some have real personalities to contend with ! Do you ever look over at a table and wonder if it might just do a little jig or notice an armchair and not feel alone ? It is a terribly anthropomorphic view, but what follows is a small sampling of some of the characters I have come across.
