Pedestals and Podiums: Utah Women, Religious Authority, and Equal Rights
The LDS Woman's Exponent of the 1800s promoted, in its masthead, "The Rights of the Women of All Nations." Editor Emmeline B. Wells was close friends with Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Church President Joseph F. Smith supported women's liberation, criticizing women who "seem to glory in their enthralled condition and who caress and fondle the very chains and manacles which fetter and enslave them!" Not surprisingly, Utah women were the first in the U.S. to get the vote.
Fast forward to the 1970s, and the sentiment changed as the LDS Church took a stand against feminism and the Equal Rights Amendment. In a bitter campaign that was sometimes public and sometimes behind the scenes, the church joined the national charge against the ERA. It is a fascinating story, superbly documented, with equally interesting views from both sides of the controversies, showing how a once radical church became a bastion of conservatism.
Pale green dining area + pedestal table + banquette seating
London designer Harriet Maxwell Macdonald devised this sun-filled turret to lighten a row of fitted cabinets lacquered in deep maroon (hidden from view in this photo). Faint-green walls (William Morris's Loam) soften the contrast, while natural linen shades with a lavender print pick up the heather tones of the nearby living room and hall.

DSC 3934 pedestal table
Slightly better picture. I was wondering about the dark brown stain/paint on the top (which only goes to the edge -- the underside had merely a varnish of some sort), and noticed some scuffing on the edges. A bit of scraping with a fingernail revealed lovely tight wood grain underneath, and indicated the finish on the top was not original
