“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?” – Henry David Thoreau – Writer
The French philosopher, Emmanuel Levinas, contends that philosophy is not the love of wisdom, as many translate from the Greek, but rather, the wisdom of love. We like his view because wisdom, that which we feel to be true, right, or lasting, is something that we recognize because it resonates within us—a lot like the experience of love. Here at IM, we know that thinking about your home, its design, function, and use of space is essential if you are going to have a home that will nurture you and all those you love. This means that there is more to think about than the latest trends and styles. It means knowing how you want to live your life, how you want your home to feel, and what you want your home to reflect to other people and the world around you. It also means knowing where the things in your home came from, how they were made, and how they will impact your life and the lives of others.
In the 21st century, technology, innovation, and access have exploded into a myriad of choices in home design finishes and furnishings. These days it really does seem like only the sky is the limit, but not all products are created equal. Your home should be as unique as you are, but it should also be safe, lasting, and healthy. Researching the products for your home is time consuming and information on the web can simply be misleading.
At IM Design, the product branch of Interior Monologues, Inc., we have done the research on a myriad of products already. We are happy to share our knowledge and our products list with you. And while we offer a large selection of the cleanest products available, we also carry products that meet different needs and approach health and environmental issues from different paths. So whether you are worried about sustainability, recycling, or clean breathing, we can help you make the kinds of informed decisions that you can feel good about. After all, we’re here to help you make your home a place to love.
