Some years ago a company that I know that makes wood and metal seating hired the best decorator in town to redo the office lobby. This company makes wood and metal seating. For most of their history, the made a lot of wood seating, like church pews and similar things. Back in the '30's when things were slow, they had their master carvers hand carve oak for the magnificant walls and woodwork in the lobby. The decorator had it all painted black with white plastic tables and chairs to "modernize" it. When the bosses saw the result, they had the walls stripped and refinished IMMEDIATELY. I am sure that that "decorator" did not work for them again.
