I’ve sifted through thousands of contemporary coffee tables on offer, to find you the very best available at a range of price points. There are even some cheeky sale buys! After all, it’s not always about what you spend, it’s about choosing the right products and how you dress and style them (more of that in another post). Ultimately, a coffee table allows to you integrate style on a lower level within your space. It’s a central focal point within a grouping of furniture – something to use and admire.
I am so happy i finally bought a Chemex. I consider myself a coffee snob, but am not an expert. I put my drip coffeemaker in the basement many years ago and switched to a french press, which i loved. But I decided to buy a Chemex recently and it's as if I am tasting real coffee for the first time! The flavors the Chemex and its filter brings out of the coffee are truly amazing. So much moreso than my french press. A little research revealed that a finer grind is the reason (you must use a coarse grind with a french press). Plus, the brew is so much cleaner than with the press. No sediment or graininess. I thought I liked that until i brewed with the Chemex, but no more! I can now say that the best coffee I've ever had is made by me, with my new Chemex.

Demographics bear this out: 30% of those between the ages of 20 and 29 will now spend time abroad; less than 60% of Americans now live in the same state they were born in. That may seem like a lot, but according to US Census Data, it was almost 70% in 1950. General mobility is up, in part because the time between graduation from high school or college and “settling down” is expanding: The average age of marriage has risen to 27 for women and 29 for men (in 1990, it was 23 for women and 26 for men in 1990), and the average age of motherhood has risen from 24.9 (1990) to 26.3; the average age to purchase a house has risen to age 33.
I test fit the pieces upside down on the floor and placed the legs in place to check spacing.  I centered the legs along the miter cut evenly.  I then measured that space to determine the skirt length.  I then cut the remaining 1” x 6” boards to make the pieces for the skirt and set them aside.  I took the top pieces inside to the flattest most level spot in my house, our kitchen island.  I placed the top pieces on the counter, ran glue on the miters and then used a strap clamp to pull the pieces together.  Flat items tend to bow when strapped so I placed a heavy paint can on each corner while they dried. To keep my wife happy and her not kill me, I placed a small piece of wax paper under each area that was glued so that it wouldn’t leak on the counter top.
There’s a couch that’s in the backdrop of so many of my childhood photos, and if I concentrate, I can feel its texture: a bushy velvet, soft and pliant. Slate blue with white leafy fronds. It was passed down to my parents in the early ’80s, when they were living in Minneapolis, from my grandparents, who’d had it in their basement — purchased sometime in the 1950s.
