In Susan Watkins "In Style" there is a painting which shows a comfortable and large room. There is a large open space, but also a table with chairs around it, a piano and a harp, more chairs by the fireplace and chairs and sofas along the wall. The caption of the picture reads:The look of industry that was becoming fasionable as an interior style is well illustrated [in the pic]. The lady is playing a harp, though the music on the piano suggests that the instrument is not long idle; the gentleman is writing [and smoking a floor standing water pipe!], while the girl--distracted by the artist--has been readng a book. Books are stacked and scattered across the table. Seating is comfortably arranged and even the sofa has been drawn up to the table for convieniece. A fitted carpet lends the room added cosiness.
