RAMSEY 1141 East Wood St. Phone 2-272O OECATUR HERALD GRANE MOST ROOMS LACK TABLES For the past forty-eight weeks readers have found in this column rules and principles of Interior Decoration and suggestions regarding their application; and each chapter or croup of chapters had a definite Independent purpose and aim; but as these same readers think o\er the lessons they haTe studied, I wonder If they do not begin to realize that these rules, principles and practical examples formed a continuous and consistent whole, tied together by one outstanding idea? Having considered our subject from different angles, do we not DOW perceive Its oneness and completeness? For rales and principles are but means to an end, and the end, in this case, Is to create the proper atmosphere in each room and In the house as a ivhole. Thus comfort and homelikeness must pre- rall in the living room; cheer and congeniality IB the dining room; restfulness In the bedroom; the ballroom, on the other hand, demands a festive setting allied to sumptuousness; the library should be more sober, comfortable but non-stimulating, so that the higher faculties may have full swav; the hall Is patterned on the well-bred hostess: neither coldly distant nor loudly cordial; as to the sun room, why, It Is the very deathlessness of spring! AN UNLIVABLE ROOM Back In Lesson XIII, I described a room furnished with a commonplace 3-plece set of overdeveloped furniture, and we agreed that it was uninteresting, resembling a window exhibit In a furniture store rather than a Ihlng room in a real home. But why? What gave It that look of being both vinlived-in and nnlivable? Several reasons were given, nil plausible; here Is one more, worth meditating ovef: perhaps the robm referred to over-emphasized the Idea of man In a sitting or reclining posture, without ony tuggeition of actntty either physical, emotional or mental. We have studied various devices for creating an impression of activity, chiefly through pattern In rug, -upholstery, drapery fabric or wall covering; but there Is a more direct method of appealing to the consciousness, and that Is to provide furnishings on the normal level of »uman activity. This level Is the zone between the eyes and the hands, chiefly the latter, as there Is scarcely a form of human activity In which the hands take no part. WHY TABLES SO IMPORTANT Obviously, then, tables are tremendously important In the decorative scheme since they raise the ground, which Is the normal level of animal activity, to the ha^d level, which is man's working sphere. Now we can gay that the room in lesson Xiu was nnlivable, because It has no hand-level--not enough tables-- «nd therefore was only flt to sleep or sit In, lost in bovine contentment. As the hand level varies with the ·eat one occupies, so is the height of a table determined by that of the chair next to which it Is placed-for you know, by this time, tha tables are chiefly used in the "Liv ing Room- Trinity," a group com posed essentially of a chair, table and lamp, each object equally in dispensable to the complete comfor of the person, sitting in the chair SEVEN TABLES IN THIS ROOM Consider today's picture, which «vas drawn from the photograph oj a charming living room in a metropolitan home There are no less than seven tables to be seen in this commodious room, and each plavs a part in one of the four "Trinity" groupings visible in the Illustration. Such a variety of sizes, heights and designs! Over In the far corner stands a robust gateleg table between two adjacent chairs; the big chair at the left of the hospitable fireplace ha? two attendant table", onp of the console type, large enough to support a lamp; the other smaller with a book trough in the lower section. Handv to the lounging chair, on the right side of the fireplace, there is a substantially built Jacobean bench, with smoking things on It; lastly there Is a davenport group In the left foreground, with two tables: one long and slender placed back of the sofa and an nval table at one end. CORRECT SIZE AND H E I G H T Note that all tables In the«e different troupe are suited In size and height to their location: end-tables approximate In height th« arm of the chair near which they are placed: the console table fs a few Inches higher, while the top of the davpnport tabl» Is on the same level as the low back of to* safe; aj to the gateleg table. It It of conrse bnilt so that a person may sit ati it comfortably. COLOR IN SMALL TABLES When selecting a table, therefore, consider first its proposed function; next, but equally important, come- points of color, design and workmanship. Painted, lacquered and decorated furniture Is the vogne, and let me hasten to add that this ^ ogue is not a fad; color Is a powerful asset In creating any desired atmosphere or Imparting individual- Itj ; and though the dominant wood in a room may be walnut or mahogany, one or two colorful pieces are always of real value, if Intelli- tently chosen; imagine, for instance,! :hat the coffee table in the aborej room stands out in Chinese redi acquer against a green carpet, or n green against a mulberry, rose r plum colored floor covering! But e careful that the lacquer or paint does not mask cheap, flimsy wood, Clumsy lines and poor construction; ables are not expensive; get the )est you can possibly bnv; quality n home appointments will always irove one of the most worth-while Investments and you should b« vllllng to pay for It as you do for ppropriate clothe*.
