in De Stijl - so to speak

I know puns are the lowest form of humour but I can't miss a chance like this. 
Stephanie commented she thought there was some feel of Mondrian in the golden section display cases. He and Gerrit Rietveld belonged to the Dutch design group De Stijl (The Style). I understand that it was Mondrian who suggested the Red/Blue colour scheme to Reitveld - the original chair was plain wood. In any event here's my photo of the pieces together.
