Sometimes I stumble across furniture or functional pieces that are just plain good lookin'. They may also function well, but their lines and shapes beg to stared at.
Furniture can be art in and of itself and every day items like railings can become focal points. (Although major point deduction for the flower pot at the bottom of the steps...seems a bit out of place...)
Suffice it to say, this is not your grandmother's rocking chair! Rock on.
