Case in point: their bed. They have a beautiful, vintage, danish, teak, mid-century modern platform bed, complete with floating nightstands.
It's EXACTLY like this:
And they don't appreciate it AT ALL.
Not at all! They think it's ugly!
Sigh. This seriously depresses me, guys.
It's just so frustrating to see such a beautiful piece living unappreciated and in obscurity.
The worst part is that they refuse to show it off. My parents insist on dressing this awesome bed in hideous mid-1990s polyester linens that flop over the sides, obscuring the lines. None of their accessories or other furnishings are in keeping with the mid-century modern aesthetic. And they absolutely refuse to tuck.
To tuck in the coverlet.
I know tucking is annoying and kind of time consuming for real life, but it makes such a difference, don't you think?
And it's not like it's a novel concept. Hello! Tucking's been around for awhile...
Parents are impossible aren't they? And for the record, just in case you think I'm being unfair, they're retired, okay? They've got nothing but time.
Time that would be well-spent on tucking.
There. I said it.
