CLUTE 103 YEARS YOU CAN SEE THE MOST IMPORTANT CHANGE... LOW COST QUALITY FURNITURE MAKES THE REAL DIFFERENCE :3- •t^-^-v. Architecrure has indeed changed in the last 103 years.... but walls and roofs and floors and windows and doors still serve the same functions. In personality and charm, the plantation homes such as the Calvit Plantation on which Clufe was founded were at least equal, and in many cases superior, to our modern concepts... .yet they differ visibly. These are changes, but not the important changes that 103 years has wrought. From the outside you can't see the big change in hon-.ts . . the truly revolutionary change in comfort and cost of furnishings. Now the family of modest means can b-y either period or modern furniture from Rambo's and enjoy the sense of well being that accompanies warm an:i homey furnishings to suit the personality of the family.
