Trends for 2006

As the Fall aproaches, new design trends begin to take shape as furniture makers, designers and industry experts explore the market for the coming year in New York, L.A. and High Point, NC. Some of the coming trends for 2006 are:
1) Texture, and a lot of it. From the rough hair of a cow hide rug, the long twists of the new shags, yes, shag, to ultra soft micro suede, and soft, smooth, supple leather. Chairs made of intertwined red rope, and ottomans made from long shaggy leather, today’s design is all about texture and shape
2) Fabric and coverings- leather is huge, of course, and becoming quite popular in dining rooms as well. Creating sofas with the ultimate in softness is almost like a competition for the manufacturers. Whether these ultra soft fabrics will wear as well, time will tell.
3) Finishes - Dark ebony woods are a definite trend that is here to stay. They are available in all different applications, from tables to headboards to lamps.
4) Shape is also playing a dominant role in furniture design. Smooth, streamlined, and shapely are all the rage. Gone are the overstuffed sofas and recliners. Fabrics and leathers are in neutral tones and are setting the stage for colorful accessories such as art, throw pillows, accent rugs and vases. No longer are furnishings bringing color to a room, it’s all about room color and the accessories. Good thing, as these are a lot less expensive to replace than living room suites.
5) Lighting- wood, leather, and glass bases are a big hit, as are oversized floor lamps. I mean big. These lamps light the entire room in a soft glow and become quite a dominant but attractive accent in the room. Neutral-colored shades of white or ivory set off the more elaborate bases. The focus again, not being on the color of the shade, but the shape of the lamp itself.
This is just a quick overview of what to expect, so keep checking back with us for more tips and trends.

I might make a blog like yours about new surf boards, but I wouldn't try to compete with you. You're doing a great job Intuitive Design.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Intuition is the act by which the mind perceives the agreement or disagreement of two ideas. When using only intuition, the truth of the proposition is immediately known right then, the moment it is presented. This is without the intervention of other ideas or deductive reasoning. Some philosophers consider human experience of raw empirical data (sometimes called "qualia") to be intuitive. For example, sportsbook, when a person sees a patch of yellow, that person is directly acquainted with the yellowness of the object, even if he or she has no name or concept for yellowness. Intuitions are widely seen as intellectual seemings. Following this approach, an epistemic subject who is going through intuitive reflection is "checking" whether a given propositional content seems immediately (without further reflection or consideration) true of false. http://www.enterbet.com
