It's true that all things (the nicer ones for sure...) need an appropriate background for the finesse to shine bright, especially if it is furniture with history and lineage. Taj Hotels recently hosted a traveling GRAND TRUNK SHOW that had exquisite pieces of antique furniture that brought back vignettes of history and nostalgia. Conducted by a Romanian architect Alexander Doleo the show was one wiff of fresh air in the city.
