It’s art if can’t be explained. It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation. It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation. Our opportunity as designers is to learn how to handle the complexity rather than shy away from it, and to realize that the big art of design is to make complicated things simple. My one suggestion after 10+ years with Walter E. Smithe Furniture: let’s keep it simple together. Home. Office. Escape to the lake house. It’s your decision to make. It’s my job to help you get there.
