I am often asked why it is that people like to come to our shops and I suppose as Dr. Johnsen said: " Our nonsense suits their nonsense" After all there is no actual need to decorate, but what fun it is and how entertaining. You can turn your whole living space into a gymnasium if you wish, or a leafy conservatory, or a stage set waiting for its players in fancy dress. Today, no one is going to be surprised. Nonsense is very acceptable at last. Laura Ashley Utdrag av forord til katalog 1983.
