I bring this up because Quebec is a prime example of preserving culture. Today I'm at the Musee de la Civilisation learning about Quebec history including its First Nations and the French and British colonization.
Every corner is exquisite. 17th and 18th century townhouses have been preserved and restored.
That charm isn't accidental. It's been carefully cultivated, and legislated. Old Quebec is protected as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Nor is it uniform.
Why not sell futons in a building like this if it means preserving history?
