"I've been married a long while, and in that time I've accumulated a lot of quality things, including a husband. For people who give of themselves, the most important things in the home are good wine and comfortable, upholstered furniture. I have a sofa, two wing chairs, and two small side chairs that are nice and easy to sit in. But furniture should always take a backseat to the people who come in and bring the room to life."
