I'm curious who is making the official judd furniture now, and if the quality is the same as when he was alive. Yrs ago I knocked on his soho door before he died to look at a bookcase i saw from the street. The person who answered told me it was private but when I told him I was struck by the beauty of the bookcase, he invited me in and let me look at it. Incredible craftsmanship, no visible joinery, all blind joints, and made by Japanese cabinet makers who were there too. They didnt speak english so I couldnt delve into convo with them. It was a fun experience. And I think some of his furniture does mix art and craftsmanship resulting in a hybrid object.

I believe I read somewhere that even if Kim K had purchased the originals at discounted price as offered she wouldn’t have been able to include them in the video - which obvs the point is for people to see them in the video

Excellent read. Thank you 🫡 glad you pointed out art (furniture) as asset, which is why I believe the Kardash thought they were REAL! That is my hill.
