The metal in St. Mark's would have been copper with a patina, which would look fine with warm materials.

Arne Jacobsen, now there's an architect/designer who has yet to receive the notice he is due. Even his early work shows clean lines and elegant simplicity.

The world could do worse than to furnish itself entirely from the catalogs of Scandinavian designers and makers -- were such a monoculture ever made possible, or necessary . . .

The Hardoy Butterfly looks right at home at Fallingwater; the dull metal finish and natural leather sling are honest and unassuming. (That sling looks like it was fresh from the box and never yet sat upon, even by a temporarily-
exhausted docent. It needs breaking in . . .)
