There is art which belongs in a museum display case.
This is not that kind of art.
Furniture - even statement furniture - is functional, and these pieces are intended to live with you as much as you live with them.
We all create moments of history - and we should be able to celebrate them, and not live in regret.
Spilling a bottle of wine may not be the moment you want to be reminded of, but the resulting stain should be worn with pride.
