HIGH POINT, N. C. | While gold shone brightly last year at the fall International Furniture Market, this time it's full-blown metal mania. Metallics of all kinds were red-hot this year, with bronze, copper and brass especially popular on occasional tables, lamps, inlays and accessories. "After a long period of cool silver tones, glinting gold, brass and bronze are a rich relief that captivate me. ". The metals trend is not limited to case-goods either. He repeated an oversized brass pearl design in a floor lamp and coffee table to dramatic effect. "The glistening orbs deployed in my polished brass Pearls tables and lamps are luscious and captivating," he said. All about making an entrance, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams used one piece of undulating sheet metal with a baked-on-brass finish as the base of the Rockwell console table, which holds a black quartz top and your keys. Currey and Co. looked to church architecture for inspiration with its Cathedral coffee table, while Bliss Studio took its cue for a table base from Roman arches. Made Goods went "full metal jacket" with the Alfred chair made of hand-hammered iron in a gold or black.
Fashion designers were shortening skirts and introducing brighter colors. American households were buying more and more color televisions so by that fateful January nearly all of prime time programming was being broadcast in color, in some cases highly saturated color. ABC had several shows perform poorly that fall so conceived the marketing concept of a Second Season launching right after the holidays. As a result, it received tremendous marketing and a hungry audience awaited that first fateful episode. The 120 episodes comprising the three seasons are incredibly uneven in their quality, especially the full second season which seemed to exhaust all concerned. There is lazy acting, very bad writing, and increasingly implausible storylines and death traps as the camp overshadowed the other aspects that made the initial season so memorable. Also, as the second season rolled onward, rather than continue to mine the comic books for villains plot lines, the writing staff seemed encouraged to find roles to fit.
Each barrel would hold 1,500 gallons, or more than 48 regular barrels of beer. When rain falls on Miller Park's expansive 8. 5-acre roof, some of the water would drain to the barrels instead of storm sewers that discharge to the Menomonee River, as part of a proposed storm-water management plan. The three barrels would collect nearly 100,000 gallons of rain during the plant growing seasons of spring, summer and fall, according to a preliminary study by The Sigma Group of Milwaukee for the stadium district board. The baseball club's irrigation truck uses 1,000 gallons of water a day in June and September, and double that amount, or 2,000 gallons a day, in July and August, a Sigma Group report says. Installing the barrels would reduce by 53% the amount of drinking water from the Milwaukee Water Works that is purchased by the Brewers baseball club for exterior irrigation, Miller Park Stadium District Executive Director Mike Duckett said. The 4,500 gallons of storage capacity with three barrels also would be a small first step toward decreasing peak flows of storm water in each rainstorm from the stadium property to the Menomonee River, Duckett said.
