Every summer my mother would have the hard wood floors sanded, buffed and finely polished. Someone I can not recall would remove the sofa. I remember it was by Jennifer furnishings, of light cream color with wide stripes covering its canvas, one stripe darker than the other. The strong wooden desk was moved along with the glass and brass and coffee table set and the small and large potted green plants. The rubber plant, I recall was placed on the back porch off the kitchen's sliding door...visible. Even the beautiful detailed cherry wood liquor and wine buffet which was very low to the floor would be moved. All of this was in preparation for the floors winter covering...an antique, oriental rug of maroon,burgundy, warm beige and cream with fringed edges. This was our seasonal ritual and all through the winter into the spring friends and family would come and go every day, some in awe of this rug.
