Slide Show in Flash for Aubusson Carpets

Got my first Flash Slide show for Aubusson Carpets ready. I still have to refine some of the details, but got it implemented in a regular XHTML Page and what’s important it does also validate as Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict!. Normally I’m not a big Fan of any Flash Application for various reasons, more of personal preference.Aubusson Flash Slide ShowBut it some how fitted quite well for my presentation purposes. It just is easier for me to manage which pictures I can show. Also one can adjust the picture size and time of duration how long a picture will be shown and some other nice things. Left out on this presentation are the older web browsers which don’t get much to see. Nevertheless the rest of the Website can be viewed with any older web browser in any way.

Finally, Bill introduced to close China Window Shade Loophole

Senators Charles Schumer and Hillary Rodham Clinton and Congressman Michael McNulty Tuesday introduced legislation in both chambers of Congress that would close a trade loophole that has allowed China to circumvent a quota on textile window blinds. The bill would keep companies like Comfortex a New York upstate based Window Shade Manufacturer from suffering further as a result of Chinese manufacturers using unfair trade practices and circumventing the quota loophole.
The way it goes at the moment is that the Chinese manufacturers can purchase fabric in Taiwan, ship it to China where the rest of the shade is finished. The fabric is folded, pleated, and glued into “cellular” or “honeycomb” shapes, attached to the Top and Bottom Rail connected with cords to lower or raise the shade. These all takes place in China. The finished window blinds and shades are then shipped to the United States as “Products of Taiwan.” This allows the merchandise to completely circumvent the quota on Chinese textile window blinds and shades at a price which is cheaper than a local retailer can buy from Comfortex.

DRAFT: Morning Glory Table by Marc Thorpe for Moroso

22 Apr 2014 at 4:56pm
morning-glory-tables-by-marc-thorpe-for-moroso-1.jpg

Inspired by his own garden, Brooklyn designer Marc Thrope created this fascinating table for Moroso of Italy. It looks almost surreal in a crowd! And it was made to be displayed like this - in a cluster. Wouldn't it look great ganged together like this in an outdoor cafe? Made from powder coated steel, it will hold up just fine to the elements. The colors are all drawn from nature - burnt red/orange, ocher, beige and green. The base is stem-like, and welded to mimic the vines of the morning glory flower. The tops are three laser cut "leaves", at different heights. These would be fantastic patio tables or perhaps you have a corner indoors that is missing that special something? They'd be great in a window with plants on them, too. A versatile piece of furniture, a nod to nature and superior design - the Morning Glory is a table for all seasons.


Combining Ice and Light: Frozen Lamp by Lavsit

22 Apr 2014 at 2:37pm
combining-ice-and-light-frozen-lamp-by-lavsit-1.jpg

Creating a solid object from a liquid material is what glass is all about. And what ice is all about. So there we have it - the Frozen Lamp. Designed by Maxim Velcovsky for Lavsit, it perfectly captures the moment when solid turns liquid - and vice versa. Doesn't this hanging lamp look like it is made from ice that is a fraction of a second away from melting? Available in two sizes, you could hang them as one-offs, you could combine like-sizes along a breakfast bar - or you could mix and match in a group light setting. The thickness of the glass is adequate to soften the light somewhat, and that's something you don't always see in sculptural glass lamps. Each piece is one of a kind, individually hand blown. The technique results in different textures, different thicknesses, a different diffusion of light from each piece. As all glassblowers understand, there comes a moment when you must "freeze" your design in time - allow the molten liquid to become solid. Velcovksy has truly mastered this moment with his new Frozen Lamp.


Private Work Station with Style: Tuttomio by Campeggi

private-work-station-with-style-tuttomio-by-campeggi-1.jpg

Talk about a funky place to work on your tablet or laptop (or phone for that matter). Totally private, yet quite open and airy. How did they do that? Italian designer Emanuele Magini created this incredible pod-like space for Campeggi (also of Italy). Magini has won several international awards and was a former set designer for Disney Italy. His Tuttomio is such a delightful small, protected and private nook where you can read, write, work, sleep - even day dream! Tuttomio means All Mine in Italian and this space truly is all yours - once inside, the outer world disappears. Viewed from the outside, it is a piece of design simplicity with great style that looks fantastic in any room. Can you imagine an office full of these work stations, everyone with their own "Tuttomio" space? Could this clever design become the office cubicle of the future? Here's hoping!
