A Charming Hanging Leaf Chair To Float With The Winds

Each is a perfect blend of utility and aesthetics. The unique leaf-shaped design of the chair gets enhanced when it is suspended.

LLANGOLLEN, WALES, UNITED KINGDOM, April 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Happy and carefree!
This is what sitting in a hanging chair makes one feel like after some time. The enveloping cocoon of warmth and the lazy motion of the swinging chair envelops people in a pervading sense of peace and balance. Everything seems just right, in equilibrium. This makes contemplation easy. This makes it easy to embrace the past and romanticise the future.

The hanging leaf chair is an example of ingenuity. Interior design chair is attractive, imaginative and rare. It is entirely handcrafted by gifted artisans who take pride in producing a flawless piece every time, all the time. Such a passion for detailing and finish is rare and every chair that comes out of the Leaf Story stable makes a style statement.

Each is a perfect blend of utility and aesthetics. The unique leaf-shaped design of the chair gets enhanced when it is suspended. It floats and swings creating an aura that is soothing, welcoming and utterly romantic.

The covers on the chairs are made to reflect the aura of the mid-century designs. Nevertheless, the monochrome colour is an indication of the modern outlook of its creator, Rupert Oliver.

The covers are made from two different and diverse materials with each being handcrafted to perfection. These materials include:
• Canvas: Sailmakers making these covers use premium quality materials to give them an attractive finish. The colour and the trims are done based on the selection of the buyer. Each stitch, each cut, each colour shading is individually made by gifted sailmakers from the North-West of England.

The canvas, itself, is made from marine grade acrylic. This makes the classic hanging chair very strong with high impact resistance. There is also a lesser chance of damage due to extreme stress making it the ideal choice for this kind of chair. The braids are made from nautical polyester and give the hanging leaf chair covers a rustic look. The eyelets used are also marine grade. They are polished to perfection thereby giving them the highest possible quality of finish.

The use of marine-grade materials makes this chair resistant to the effects of weather, water and UV rays. The sheer strength of these materials ensure their resistance to impact. They are also able to withstand the impact of the harshest of winters and the toughest of outdoors. No matter how adverse the circumstances, they remain true to the style, colour and design that were imparted to them when they were first made by the sailmakers.

• Leather: By using the finest saddle-quality cowhides to make the hanging chair covers, the sailmakers give them durability and longevity that lasts for almost a lifetime. This 2.8mm thick cowhide is also vegetable-tanned using traditional eco-friendly methods to give them a colour whose quality improves with age and use.
The makers of these leather covers have exacting standards that they seek to improve every time they craft a cover.

The classic hanging chair is a work of art; something that is as common as it is unusual. Nevertheless, it is still a perfect piece to while away some lazy time. It is the perfect chair to give tired souls and soles a much-needed break.

Ultra-marathoner will run a marathon a day for 30 days while carrying a 25-pound slam ball on his back

I’m inspired by individuals living with autism and the daily challenges they face and overcome. They motivate me as I face the challenge of running 750 miles in 30 days.”

— Richard Sexton

HOTHOUSE, NC, UNITED STATES, April 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Earlier today, one North Carolina man started the beginning of a unique, month-long journey across the Carolinas to raise money and awareness for autism. At 7 a.m. in Hothouse, North Carolina, along the border of the state with Tennessee, Charlotte resident Richard Sexton kicked off his 750-mile run in an effort to raise $50,000 for the South Carolina-based autism awareness organization, Champion Autism Network (CAN). Sexton aims to run the equivalent of a marathon a day for 30 days while carrying a 25-pound slam ball fondly nicknamed “Slappy” in his rucksack.

From April 28th through May 26th, the ultra-marathon dubbed Carolinas CAN Ruck for Autism, will move from Hothouse, N.C. and run through the mountains of Ashville, across the state to Wilmington and down the coast, ending in Surfside Beach, S.C. near CAN’s headquarters. Sexton will carry “Slappy” the 25-pound slam ball while running to recognize the weight carried every day by individuals and families affected by autism.

Sexton is an experienced ultra-marathoner and endurance athlete who has completed six Iron Man-distance triathlons and run nearly 100 marathons. Inspired by his personal experiences adopting his son from China, as well as his work as an early childhood education substitute teacher, and community volunteer, Sexton, along with his friend and founder of CAN, Becky Large, created the fundraiser to help support individuals and families living with autism in the Carolinas.

“I’m so inspired by these children and families and the daily challenges they face – and overcome. If I can reach my fundraising goal for CAN, while raising awareness of autism in our community, that motivates me and will continue to push me as I face the challenge of running 750 miles in 30 days,” said Sexton.

CAN was founded in 2012 by Myrtle Beach businesswoman Becky Large. Large is the mother of two sons, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. CAN’s mission is to create and expand a network of autism champions, including businesses, local non-profit organizations and individuals with autism, to provide families and individuals with necessary resources for daily life, including a strong community support system.

“We at Champion Autism Network are so thankful for Richard and his enthusiasm for taking on this massive physical endeavor to raise awareness of autism,” said Becky Large. “The funds raised from this extraordinary effort will help to create inclusive communities for those touched by autism by connecting people with each other and the valuable resources they need.”

For this reason, on his new website, Shapiro offers a wide variety of practical tips for both novice home repairers and expert home remodelers to use on their properties.

For example, visitors to the site can find out how to fix their decks, master bedrooms, attics, and patios. They can likewise receive advice for finishing or sprucing up their basements, as well as improving their garages and bathrooms. Other areas of the home that are covered on the website include the kitchen, living room, home office, and dining room, according to Shapiro.

The website is designed to meet the needs of home remodelers who are preparing to tackle massive renovation projects. At the same time, the site also offers guidance for completing minor tasks around the house. For instance, readers can expect to learn how to install a new countertop in a kitchen, paint a bedroom perfectly, or even install a daybed outdoors.

Professor Harvey Shapiro said his overall goal with the website is to equip ambitious DIYers with the tools they need to successfully complete their dream home projects. He said he also hopes to inspire more homeowners to personally take on home projects in the months ahead.

Mastrangelo Law Offices Settles Postal Worker Injury for $206,500

Nick Mastrangelo - Top Bay Area Attorney

Nick Mastrangelo – Top Bay Area Attorney

While trying to do the right thing and deliver critical medicine to an elderly person, a post office mail worker was injured.

Sadly the injury could have been prevented with some very inexpensive grip tape or other non slip surface coating.”

— Nick Mastrangelo

ORINDA, CA, USA, April 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sometimes doing the right thing doesn't go right. Recently a postal worker, that we used to call the mail man, was injured trying to do the right thing. We'll call our mail carrier "Jan" to protect those involved. Jan like many long time post office mail carriers had a regular route and knew many of the people on her route. Like many modern routes, Jan's was mostly "neighborhood" and street boxes. There was very little delivery to the house or the porch.

One of the customers on Jans route was an elderly widow, who had mobility issues. One rainy January morning, Jan noticed that the elderly customer's medications were to be delivered. Instead of holding them at the post office which is the normal procedure, it was decided that Jan would deliver the medications directly to the front door in order to reduce the risk if the widow didn't get her medications on time. Normally Jan would stay in her mail truck and deliver the mail to street side boxes.

Instead of staying in the mail truck when Jan arrived at the elderly customer's house, she parked intending to deliver the medications to the widow at the front door. Typical of the area, the widows home had a wooden gated courtyard in front and a wooden sloped wheelchair ramp leading from a landing to a concrete walkway. Our client opened the front gate and took one step onto the sloped wooden ramp when her foot slipped out from under her on the ramp and she fell forward onto the concrete path on her right hand. She suffered a fractured right wrist, requiring surgery. The ramp had been constructed without a non slip safety coating, creating a dangerous situation that Jan was unaware of.

The plywood ramp had become very slippery. Most ramps like this have a safety coating that adds friction. Unfortunately for Jan this one did not and it resulted in her being injured while trying to do the right thing. Not sure what to do after receiving medical care for her fractured wrist, Jan called the Mastrangelo Law Offices. Nick Mastrangelo reached out to the widows insurance company and reached a settlement agreement on Jan's behalf of $206,500 for the injury, and other damages. " Sadly the injury could have been prevented with some very inexpensive grip tape or other non slip surface coating." said Mr. Mastrangelo.

Today’s consumers want choice, and the newest online sales tools allow them to visualize and personalize their furniture purchases before placing an order.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What are the latest developments affecting the furniture manufacturing market?

We take a look at the 10 most important trends that will drive the industry forward in 2021.

Trend 1: Office Furniture Sales Shift Away From Traditional Office Lines To Meet Demand For Work From Home (WFH) And Residential-Oriented Products

The Coronavirus pandemic hit the $12.5 billion office furniture business especially hard in the past year as many office customers shut their doors in favor of allowing their employees to Work from Home (WFH).

Not all furniture market segments suffered as much of a downturn as office furniture, however; for example, laboratory furniture sales have maintained momentum thanks to increased investment in biotech research and clinical testing laboratories.

But the big breakout sales star has been residential-oriented furniture products, as employees upgraded their home office environments to make them more productive and functional, and renovated their living quarters (including outdoor areas) to make them a more comfortable environment for enjoying many months of “lockdown.”

Analysts at Quintana Research and Consulting predict the global home office furniture market segment will see compound annual growth rates (CAGR) of around 7.5% during 2020-2026 – which points to the long-lasting impact of the WFH trend.

Trend 2: E-Commerce Sales Take Off As Augmented Reality And Visualization Tools Assist In Furniture Product Personalization And Purchasing Decision

According to Statistica, e-commerce revenue will reach $2.7 trillion in 2021, with the average user spending just over $700 annually.

Overall, E-commerce CAGR is projected to increase by 6.29% between now and 2025. And user penetration will also grow substantially – from an estimated 50.8% of shoppers using e-commerce today to more than 63% by 2025.

Many analysts point to the Coronavirus lockdown over the past year as one of the reasons major e-commerce giants have grown so spectacularly over the past year – Amazon’s revenue is nearing $400 billion, Walmart’s revenue (including physical store sales) is north of $550 billion, and Ikea’s parent holding company reports revenue of over $45 billion.

The rapid update of e-commerce sales in the home furnishings market is causing quite a few retail companies to restructure their operations.

For example, at Williams Sonoma (whose customer-facing brands include Williams Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and West Elm), president and CEO Laura Alber recently announced in an earnings conference call that “E-commerce accelerated sequentially to a record net comp of over 49%, and we were pleased to see our store performance improved throughout the quarter to a net negative 11% comp. Even more encouraging is the retail demand comp at negative 4%.”

In plain English, Alber is saying that while e-commerce is booming, physical store sales are down, albeit not as bad as before. Julie Whalen, William Sonoma’s CFO, admits this means more restructuring is in the offing: “Our plan, currently, is to close approximately 40 stores this year. Stores continue to be a competitive advantage as people like to see merchandise in-person. However, we are anticipating a future with fewer, better, more profitable stores.”

For a long time, the common consensus was that furniture sales were incompatible with e-commerce. Analysts believed that consumers wanted to physically touch and handle furniture products before making a purchasing decision.

However, conditions are changing.

First, more “digital native” Millennial and Gen Z customers are now “decision-makers”, a cohort that is much more comfortable shopping online for all kinds of products, including furniture, fashion, and prescription eyeglasses, that were once thought to be unsuitable for e-commerce first sales.

The second factor that’s changed is the rise of personalization.

Today’s consumers want choice, and the newest online sales tools allow them to visualize and personalize their furniture purchases before placing an order.

Custom photorealistic visualization tools let consumers evaluate material choices (including metal and wood materials, fabrics, surface treatments, and color choices) as well as provide the ability to personalize furniture designs (with elements such as custom storage components, built-in lighting, phone charging pads, or hidden power and data connections) before making a final purchase.

Augmented reality (AR) tools are another factor that’s helping fuel the growth in online furniture sales. Sophisticated AR tools help consumers see exactly what their furniture will look like in their home environment by matching 3D images of furniture with live video captured by their handheld smartphones.

Trend 3: Race To Renovate And Update Office Furnishings And Layouts To Make Working In The Office More Attractive To Employees

The success of Coronavirus vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer in preventing serious illness (as well as inhibiting the spread of the virus by those who have been vaccinated) is leading many business executives to draw up plans for workers to once again return to the office.

For example, Microsoft recently published an extensive analysis of the pros and cons of Working from Home (WFH) that’s well worth reading; it goes a long way to explain why they have reopened their offices worldwide as part of a new post-Covid hybrid work program.

1. Flexible work is here to stay
2. Leaders are out of touch with employees and need a wake-up call
3. High productivity is masking an exhausted workforce
4. Gen Z is at risk and will need to be re-energized
5. Shrinking networks are endangering innovation
6. Authenticity will spur productivity and wellbeing
7. Talent is everywhere in a hybrid work world

Key Points Of Microsoft Predictions For The Future Of Work, Including Work From Home (WFH) And Hybrid Home/Office Work Scenarios

But just announcing that the office is reopening may not be sufficient to lure WFH workers back.

As we invite employees to return to the office, we need to rebuild confidence and create a compelling reason for workers to return – e.g. an attractive environment where people look forward to coming into the office.

That’s why many companies (Formaspace included) are currently undertaking major office renovations that will make the office environment feel safer and more productive for returning workers – as well as supporting those who will continue to work part-time from home.

Trend 4: Using Accessory Mods And Furniture Hacks To Increase Space Separating Workers In The Office – Without Creating Dark, Claustrophobic Environments

The Coronavirus pandemic has dramatically changed our perceptions of what is “safe” and “appropriate” in office design.
