Edith Wharton vs. RH

The lit nerds at Flavorwire have taken the most authoritative lines from American novelist Edith Wharton's very first book, The Decoration of Houses, and spliced them with images from home catalogs. There's nothing quite like using a line like "that cheap originality which finds expression in putting things to uses for which they were not intended is often confounded with individuality" next to every page of a Restoration Hardware catalog. Bliss. [Flavorwire]
