This morning I was reviewing which pictures show up when I search for “reputation” in Google images. It is always surprising to see what appears. For me, this is a silly form of entertainment and gets me wondering why certain images are chosen.
Today I found a line of business furniture called “Reputation” from Paoli. The company has an entire series of business people’s desks. I was wondering how this one particular desk was able to enhance an individual’s reputation. Perhaps I was missing something important.
I got to thinking about it. I imagine the the leather chair connotes masculinity and the dark mahogany grain represents permanence and seriousness. The edges are somewhat curved which surprised me. I gather that reputation can be strengthened if a desk has some feminine undertones to build up an executive’s emotional quotient (EQ). Since there are no papers or work lying around, I presume this person has better things to do than execute and implement ideas. They do have a laptop indicating they are technology savvy and likely to be on the road.
Bottom line — I think I am reading too much into the powers of this line of furniture.
