Well-Advised: Richard Hallberg

"The price doesn't determine the quality of an item, or whether I'll use it in a project. Everything I pick up has to have a sense of quality to it, a level of workmanship that can stand the test of time. A $150 basket might be placed under an 18th-century carved mirror. They work in harmony because they have the same integrity."
