To the couple that had to have 300 holes drilled in their “flat-front lacquered maple cabinets in the kitchen,” I really feel for you.
Same goes for the family that had to put “their 18th-century mahogany dining table and chair set in storage.”
These and other housing décor horror stories in The New York Times really moved me. I know how tough it can be to order a billion-dollar table from France only to have the children carve initials in it.
And I know exactly what it feels like to buy priceless Barcelona chairs, only to have to stick them in storage because the “corners are basically razor blades.”
Yes, my experiences are very similar to the other rich and famous. I feel for all parents in the world that had to sacrifice world-class design just to make their homes child-safe.
The suffering of mankind is endless.
