Chairs are a map of a family....
These are the words of Dominique Browning from Around the House and In the Garden, a book I am loving to read. She continues:
"We can read volumes about how people spend time together by where chairs are grouped and how they face one another. It is touching to walk into a well-worn room and see chairs nestled together, in anticipation of another evening with their occupants - or perhaps to mark the place of such a time. I am especially moved when I sit in an older chair and feel the way the cushion has settled, molded over many years with the weight of someone else's habits. . . There comes a time when no amount of punching and fluffing will relieve a chair of its history."
I have also posted another Daily Amazing in the Miniature Series.
