We were hanging artwork and mirrors today in a house that's being newly remodeled and decorated. In a casual conversation with the designers working on the project, they mentioned that the new queen size mattress on the bed in the room we were in cost $25,000. It was a nice mattress and all, but twenty five grand for a dang mattress?
On the plus side, we're likely to end up back at that house Friday, and Perry (my boss) told me I should bring along a few of my turned pieces to show these designers. They really like Perry because he's referred a few good clients to them, and he figured they should know about my stuff. (He's one of my best customers.)
