Curt Schmitt and Useful Beauty  

'Furniture is meant to be used and it should therefore be solid yet comfortable—and comforting. A cabinet, though essentially practical, doesn't have to be common. Like sculpture, fine furniture and cabinetry crave visual appeal and creative expression.

'For me successfully building a piece of furniture means discovering just the right combination of materials, purpose, and imagination, resulting in an object both useful and beautiful.'
