Seattle customer’s cylinder display
for room of antiques
Beryl in Seattle has many talents with crafting and design. She asked for four cylinders; two cut flat on both ends so she can stack them for this arrangement. She writes: “When we moved in the townhouse, this corner had congested feng shui. The beginning of the remedy was the statue of Wisdom. It naturally followed that he needed illumination. We liked the symbolism of the soft glow much better than a harsh spot-light.”
