The post went viral — so viral that West Elm, so conscious of its public image, especially among millennial readers of The Awl, BuzzFeed, and other sites that had followed the story — was forced to act. Within days, the Peggy was scrubbed from the West Elm website and removed from showrooms. Shortly thereafter, West Elm declared that they would fully refund or replace all defective Peggy couches purchased in the US or Canada after July 2014.

Coffee tables are crafted from all sorts of beautiful materials—iron, glass, you name it. To pick the one that’s right for you, first consider three things: the overall aesthetic of your room, your color palette, and how it’ll be used. Will it be purely decorative? (Try glass!) Hold books or serve as foot rest? (Think: sturdy wood or soft upholstery). Here, we outline all your options.

When I was a kid , I had already heard that Danny Thomas story. Meanwhile, growing up in West L.A., we would have friends, and relatives, come visit - my parents would always do the movie star home tour, in our car (before those crazy lopped -off roof tour vans were everywhere). I just remember driving by Thomas' house, at the very top of Hillcrest Dr. , in Trousdale Estates, and everytime we'd go by, I'd imagine Thomas' wife out of town, and Danny lying under an enormous glass table, and having some hooker shat on the top, and him getting excited. True, or false, it's amazing how gossip, rumor, whatever, gets in your head, and stays there forever.

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.

Dating to the 1970s, coffee has been incorrectly described by many, including historian Mark Pendergrast, as the world's "second most legally traded commodity".[136][137] Instead, "coffee was the second most valuable commodity exported by developing countries," from 1970 to circa 2000.[138] This fact was derived from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development Commodity Yearbooks which show "Third World" commodity exports by value in the period 1970–1998 as being in order of crude oil in first place, coffee in second, followed by sugar, cotton, and others. Coffee continues to be an important commodity export for developing countries, but more recent figures are not readily available due to the shifting and politicized nature of the category "developing country".[136]

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.

In 1672 an Armenian named Pascal established a coffee stall in Paris that was ultimately unsuccessful and the city had to wait until 1689 for its first coffeehouse when Procopio Cutò opened the Café Procope. This coffeehouse still exists today and was a major meeting place of the French Enlightenment; Voltaire, Rousseau, and Denis Diderot frequented it, and it is arguably the birthplace of the Encyclopédie, the first modern encyclopedia.[193] America had its first coffeehouse in Boston, in 1676.[194] Coffee, tea and beer were often served together in establishments which functioned both as coffeehouses and taverns; one such was the Green Dragon in Boston, where John Adams, James Otis, and Paul Revere planned rebellion.[33]

11 of copies of both parts need to be laser cut out of 3mm plywood and then assemble them to make sure they fit correctly. Once you are happy, take the matrix apart again and spray it white to improve the reflective characteristics of the table. When dry put them back together again and place them over the LEDs. It might be a bit harder to fit them together after spraying as they are now a bit thicker but don't worry just gently tap them into place before you put the matrix into the table.

Undeniably the most common shape for any kind of table, you can’t go wrong with four sides and four corners! Rectangular tables are often better fits for long, narrow places and in fact, can make themselves smaller than round tables and yet still cover a lot of ground. Whether you’re hosting a holiday meal for a crowd or fitting a work table into an unused closet, rectangles can fit the bill perfectly. www.structube.com
