Make It Quirky And They WILL Notice!

Regular readers know all about my love of quirky thing, the little details all around us and things that make you smile. In this instance I was delighted to find that it was not only me who noticed that the legs of the seats by Texel’s Eierland lighthouse have been made in the same form as the lighthouse it stands in front of.

Kiwi Daughter, usually disparaging about my taking photographs of inanimate objects of the architectural detail kind, thought that this detail was really lovely and whipped out her phone to take a photograph herself! I also heard other people mention it as they passed by, so here is a message to architects and designers everywhere: make it quirky and they will notice!
