The Value of the Hall

Terence Conran takes a good hard look at entry areas in his  House Book, a formative piece of popular interior design. The visuals are out of date, but the basic principles are valid. After nearly forty years of experiments, I finally parked the right table in the front hall . It's round, a convenient diameter, has a tulip-shaped pedestal, and is just a bit high. A hall is a switching point for every thing and being that comes into a building. A table makes it easy to unload.

A flowering branch in a big jug set just the right tone for the big spring meal. It's so apt, in fact, that I'll use the table as an ornamental focal point for seasonal decoration all year around -30-
