    arty and crafty

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    The “arty and crafty” furniture that is uncomfortable in use, the model house in which no man can be at easy.

    arty and crafty = exacting, choosy, snobbish, ornate, flamboyant,

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Re: arty and crafty

    Possibly attractive, probably simple (clean lines), but usually uncomfortable, expensive, and useless

    I assume the expression comes from "arts and crafts". simple things made by hand that seldom have a useful purpose.
