Scope and Content

Original caption:

Kijk eens rond in uw huis: hoeveel kleuren hebben uw meubels? Alleen maar / blank en bruin en zwart? Zet er dan in gedachten eens iets bij: een rode stoel / naast dat gele gordijn...een blauwe kast in die witte kamer...een groene / tafel op dat oranje kleed... Donkere huizen worden zonniger, saaie kamers / opwindender, vergeten hoekjes krijgen leven - met onze collectie kleur / meubels uit Italie, Zweden en Finland. / Ons Huis ons Thuis / een kleurrijke expositie op de meubelafdeling van / de Bijenkorf

[Translation: Look around in your house: how many colours has your furniture got? Only plain and brown and black? Then imagine to add something to it: a red chair next to the yellow curtain... a blue wardrobe in that white room... a green table on that orange carpet... Dark houses become sunnier, dull rooms more exciting, forgotten corners come alive - with our collection of coloured furniture from Italy, Sweden and Finland / Our house our home - a colourful exhibition on the furniture floor of the Bijenkorf]
