Please have a seat...or maybe not

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”. This is a scripture verse that is simply true. It is not talking so much about gold in a treasure chest, though if you do have one, it would definitely fits well, but it is talking about what we consider as valuable to us. An art collector would definitely treasure the valuable and rare paintings hanging on his wall. It could be so valuable that he would even keep it in a steel room.

It is the same with an architect. Someone has observed that young architects scrimp and save to buy a Barcelona Chair. It seems that buying one is a rite of passage for an architect. It is proudly displayed in their homes. Well, I may not know much about what an architect likes to collect, but from the search I have done on Barcelona Chair, I am quite impressed. The designs are simple yet modern. If you are wondering where you can find one, check out The price is very high since it is handmade and of good quality. It would be the treasure in your house that you would gladly show to visitors but wish they would not sit on it. Hehe… .
