Steve Jobs was famous for his obsession with design.
Typically, you hear about this obsession as it pertained to Apple products.
But it was also a big part of his personal life.
According to Walter Isaacson’s illuminating biography, Jobs was so picky about design that it took him eight years to furnish a house he bought in 1991.
When Jobs finally did purchase a washer & dryer, a lamp, a TV, or a radio – it was because he had found something he truly admired.
After he bought a Miele washer and dryer, Jobs said “I got more thrill out of them than I have out of any piece of high tech in years.”
In some of these products, you can see design cues that would later make their way into Apple products.
