I can't deny it.First, if you're allergic to vapidity, modern design may not be the hobby for you. Have you ever read any of the descriptions/explanations/justifications that designers -- or at least their copywriters -- attach to their work?Second, there have been lots of substantive comments about your lamps. I've made a couple myself. They might not be up to your hermeneutical standards, but there you are.Finally, your vase is a joke.It was a joke when you bought it. It...

Is this true? I could have sworn that Foo indicated just a few months ago that they were not expecting.If it is true, my sincere congratulations and best wishes. I look forward to the evolution of your white/cream color scheme.
I like the one you got better, anyway. The hunting scene is very iconic for those carpets but still somewhat uncommon. Please give more details. Has it been repaired?
