Dennis Lewchuk. But he’ll still answer to Johnnie while standing behind the cash register of the Stereo City he opened with two of his sons in Chattanooga, Tennessee, just behind the Wendy’s along Interstate 75. And he’ll tell you about his Elvis impersonation,... “When I’m up north, it’s Denny,” he said in between ringing up customers. The making of a music legend Dennis was born at a Norfolk hospital in July 1946 and went home to a chicken coop. His parents had fixed up an old one-room brood house on First Street, not far from the Norfolk sale barn. In the winter months, Dennis said, he would curl up under a blanket on the floor in front of a wood-burning stove. His dad, Frank, filled his children’s bellies with squirrel, dove, rabbit and catfish. “I got tired of eating rabbits and squirrels. Mama and Grandma would say if you don’t eat it, then you aren’t hungry,” Dennis said.

National and global brands catering to lovers of modern design and contemporary furniture exhibited their hottest wares last month at the 27th annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair. Held annually in New York, ICFF (as it's known to the design cognoscenti) is the most important design show in the country, the place where U. S. trends are revealed. One Collection has revived the 45 Chair from Danish designer Finn Juhl, and M2L has reissued the discontinued 1972 Deep Tuft sectional sofa from designer Harvey Probber. "The real test of great design is time," says Michael Manes, president of M2L. "Harvey Probber was a true American design icon whose brilliant, modern design spanned four decades -- from the mid-1940s to the 1980s -- and continues to age... Colored chairs from Bernhardt, bold wallcovering from Trove and vibrant lighting from Niche Modern were among the many bright-hued options at the show. "I think there are so many architects and designers wanting and searching for good lighting, and they are creating a market, maybe one that didn't exist before," says Jeremy Pyles, Niche's co-founder and creative director. Multifunctional design Architects often talk about rooms that accommodate multiple functions, and industrial designers are taking note.
