A Fixture Hint
Three years ago I tried to help
my sister select a hat. Wo wont
to half the stores in Portlnnd.
Sho tried on at ienst 100 before
finding ono that suited. I didn't
npprecinto that mothod at ull
too much traveling, bother nnd
hit or miss principle. That
evening I started thinking it
over. Said to myself, were I n
woman and wanted a hat I would
go to a good milliner, tell her
what I wanted to pay, wear the
dress I wanted to wear with the
hat, and have her design mo one
a creation to fit mo, and mo
alone, my beauty, my manner
isms, my individuality: In short,
just me. That carried another
chain of thought. If hats, why
not electric fixtures?
Furnishings in the home are
very important. Harmonious
colors, good selection of furni
ture and a nice blonding of lines
mean n great deal, and a cheer
ful home means n cheerful life.
But after having a room proper-
y furnished you can very ens y
ruin tho harmony of tho whole
by a poor selection of fixtures.
Wow lor the last three years I
have been studying everything
that would have a relation to
fixture design, architecture pe
riods of furniture, color match
ing, principle of design, shape.
rhythm, sketching.nnd nil things
that help mo design and make
tne proper nxtures for your
home. 1 am not done, never ex
pect to be. but think I am fairlv
proficient and ready to trv.
louay 1 want you to ca me to
thnt home of yours and let me
sketch you a suggestion. It
wont obligate you, and it might
help. Fixture prices are mighty
low now, and if you do buy you
will get 51.25 value for every
dollar you spend.
