Recently I went to see my friends John and Frances to view the new art-furniture piece they had commissioned. They had asked the artist Matt Hanner (thebuildup71@gmail.com) to have his way with an old wooden dresser. They gave him no restrictions on the design, and now they are so in love with the results that they actually display the dresser as sculpture. In my friend’s own words: “Matt surprised me today when he asked what we were keeping in the drawers. I still don’t think he has any idea how much we enjoy these drawers as living-room sculpture. We do not find this chest to be empty… it is quite full.” Just shows that there are no rules when it comes to decorating.
