Jim: Lord help you if you ever purchase a FLW fixer-upper. We'll expect to see you on the next house walk. Wink

Why is it that certain people on this message board tend to be so curmudgeonly? I'm pretty sure I woke up in America this morning, so I think people can do whatever they want when it comes to furnishing their house, FLW or otherwise. You may have a different opinion, but it's just that...an opinion.

Well, actually I'm an agnostic. Even if the Lord was gonna share the cost, I doubt I would ever be fortunate enough to own a Wright house. But I can assure you I would have no reason to be defensive about the interior fittings, regardless of my budget. I never said anyone who has taken on such a heroic effort need apologize for their choice of furnishings. And who cares what I think anyway?



rgrant started this!! I just agreed. Neutral

Why is it that some people on this board tend to be so judgemental? "...America...?" This has come to be about the cherished "right to have unsympathetic sensibilities"?. I now realize that I utterly failed in making the simple point I thought I did.



Curmudgeonly would actually be criticizing rather than contributing to the banter. Nobody has to agree, it's just discussion.



Well, yes. That's all I was giving was an opinion.

Hmmm...That seems to be the $64,000 question...I think you started with what could be construed as a judgemental observation...

One final volley per my original post: I would construe that "billiard tables (in the context noted by rgrant), Op art, and Mies chairs" are incongruent in a Wright house as being an obvious, not a judgemental, observation.



To each his own (decor), that's why they make chocolate & vanilla! Wink
