It is not a new thought that fear is the opposite of love - or even that all emotions can be boiled down to variations of these two primal essentials. True to form of all opposites they are a 2-sided coin and neither can exist without the other. There is no knowledge of dark without light; no happy without sad, no Harry Potter without Voldemort.

And while it may seem trite to attribute such significance to a piece of furniture, it is much more than that. It is a piece of the life that you live. It is a little nugget in the greater vein of your day-to-day.Read More
