Once upon a time there was a magazine called House & Garden. Some called it HG. It was very classy and decorative but not without a sense of humor. When an actual line of furniture came out named after Ernest Hemingway I invented several pieces of imaginary furniture named after other famous writers T. S. Eliot, Dorothy Parker, Henry James and Robert Benchley. One writer who could have had a line of furniture named after him was Evelyn Waugh. A few years before he became a novelist he studied cabinet making in London. True story.
