Slow Furniture Movement

Why not a slow furniture movement?

An early aphorism I placed in our literature was a quote from John Ruskin: “When we build, let us think that we build forever.”

This is a sentiment I am fully in support of particularly these days when you see a “modern” building go up and 5 years later, they’re replacing the siding on it. There’s quality today for you.

But one of my Mastery students quoted Ruskin in a different way that I think is equally valid. Perhaps you’ll agree:

When we build, let us think that it takes forever.

Weekend projects do seem to take on a half life of their own. Some of mine are decades long now. Sigh. I keep plugging away at it.
