Somehow, the Oval Office getting a “makeover” — i.e. fixing all the things they haven’t had time to fix — is news. What’s new? New York in the house.
The furniture, the rug, the wallpaper, the lamps, couches, coffee table, armchairs, and desk chair. But note how well Empire gets repped, via The Chicago Tribune:
Other states represented were Pennsylvanihttp://www.abchome.com/a (as mentioned above; they got to weave our couches) and Michigan (where the rug, which is 25% recycled wool, came from). But the majority of the Oval Office’s new decor comes, naturally, from New York, because we have awesome things. It’s not exactly ABC Carpet & Home-level awesomeness, but still, New York’s furniture just got a “big ups” today from the Oval Office. That is all.
