I have always loved grandfather clocks but in my mind they were sort of more traditional in nature; something that was best displayed in big, traditional homes where the style was classic and the ceilings were tall. Being that I live in a decidedly smaller version of such a home and my style is what most people would kindly refer to as eclectic, I quickly ruled out grandfather clocks as something that could integrate into my décor, even though I loved them in theory.
But a friend recently introduced me to a website where I was able to browse through the most extensive selection of grandfather clocks that I had ever seen. And, boy, within a few minutes I had been proven wrong about grandfather clocks only being available in a few traditional styles. In fact, I was able to locate grandfather clocks that were more contemporary in nature and even quite a selection that were right up my alley – more fun and funky than classic or contemporary.
My new grandfather clock was delivered yesterday and I am so pleased with my decision. It looks great in my home and is already a conversation piece. I had friends over last night and they were all amazed by how cool this grandfather clock is – how different it is (which I absolutely love as I am all for “different”). And now I’m turning a bunch of my friends onto the same website so they can get an idea of all the fun clocks out there that they can find for their homes – grandfather clocks galore!
