Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Dining Table Top Glass
Looking For A Good Restaurant In Manhattan?TGI Fridays on 8th avenue - They have mozzerella sticks if you insist upon the italion theme- which by the way, is a total mistake for a baby shower. Baby showers should not be so ethnic like that. People will be stuffing there face with starches- marinara sauce everywhere, everyone will get tired quick from the heavy food- Oh, and Ihop in Jersy is a fun place for a shower too.------What is usually in a dining room ?Dining Room:A table with chairs, obviously...Otherwise.. A hutch with the fancy china in it and what not. You know, plates, bowls, wine glasses. And then usually wine racks? I dont know. And candles are usually in a dining room. Think about when you eat thanksgiving...look around. Whats there?Answer mine?------The cushions on my dining room chairs are stained (not removable) What can I do to give them a makeover?It's very easy to re-upholster the chairs.Turn the chair over, unscrew and remove the 4 screws and remove the seat cushion.(you may have to peel back fabric to expose screws)Cut fabric 4" larger than the cushion.Lay cushion up-side-down on top of the back of the fabric.Wrap fabric tightly to the back of the cushion like a present and staple in place.Then re-attach cushion to the chair.------how to treat/seal an oak table?For oak, you'd usually suggest either an oiled or waxed finish: a good quality beeswax finish applied in layers should help. However, you may still have problems with the stain coming through if it gets damp, so you could consider some sort of cellulose lacquer or varnish. It won't give as nice a 'natural' finish (it'll actually make it look a bit 'cheap'), but will certainly seal it.------Shutter Island - missing glass sceneThe whole water scene was planned. If you watch Mark Rufalo as he goes to fill the cup, he's watching Teddy and the woman the whole time. He doesn't fill up the cup, but he pretends too. That whole scene was planned, for Leo's character. The woman writing Run, was already planned. Everything was planned for DiCaprio. The whole movie is a complex role play to help a very traumatized patient------How can I remodel my apartment without replacing the furniture to acheive a cooler, warmer, nicer, homier feel?A fresh coat of paint can work wonders. Maybe one wall could be one color and the others a contrasting or complementary color. Paint makes you feel you have redecorated. Large furniture doesn't convey an airy feeling, but that's okay. Make your large furniture look cool and stylish with inexpensive accessories. Bright pillows! A colorful throw!Little eye catchers that give personality to the room. Things YOU like!------Is there anything that I can use to prevent my new dining room table from becoming any more scratched?Gidday,What I did with my last table to prevent it from being scratched was I got a piece of glass cut to size and placed it on the table. It looked great, you could still see the beautiful wood grain though the glass and all I had to do was clean the glass.When I eventually sold the table to my friends the table top still looked brand new.------What's better for a dining room table? Glass or wood top?I prefer wood. I think it looks more natural. Glass is easily cleaned but it must be done more often because of fingerprints and such. Wood is easy to clean as well because most tables come with a protective layer over the table. All you have to do is wipe it down and every once and while use some lemon oil and it doesn't show all the blemishes like glass will.------What is this glass object for?It looks exactly like a vase for growing hyacinths to me.Edit: This is wrong. As noted in comments, a hyacinth vase has a larger hole. Search for "bubble shot glass" images to see the OP's object. Previous answer continues below...The bulb sits in the top and roots grown into the water below (you have to let the water touch the bulb until the roots grow).See this advert on Amazon------what is best for Lucite?If it is just a few scratches, I wonder if the stuff they advertise for fixing scratched eye glasses would work? If the table is so scratched up it looks like frosted glass, I maybe a place that does auto body work might be able to re-polish and buff the surface for you? If lucite part is a flat, removable, insert, it might be easier to just replace with new material------Help! Challenging small apartment design?go to the IKEA website, they have a design tool to download to your computer, you can put your space's measurements, where the windows are located at, etc. and it will give you ideas for dividing space, storage and so on, although if you don't buy the material from them, you can get ideas by the exact measurements. this is how I remodeled a foreclosed home and everyone loves it.------Energy efficient light bulb shattered & now I am covered in glass splinters......?See a doctor right away about the fragment in your eye. Clean hair and clothing with a vacuum cleaner. Small fragments can be picked up from floor and counters with a damp sponge or damp paper towels, washcloths, etc. When the floor and counters are dry, go over them again to catch any loose pieces. Be careful about any bits that may have been tracked out of the immediate area. Good Luck------What do you think of my memoir so far?Sure it's good. Interesting... But you have to check your grammar..."my previous homes were too near to the busy roads and speeding cars,"- my previous homes were too near busy roads and speeding cars,Are you writing in past tense or present? It's kind of confusing me... You slip to present and past at times. Otherwise, this is really interesting :)Good luck with it!------What color dining room table should I get for my nook?if you go with a different colored table it will stand out & look like a mistake if all the other woods in the kitchen coordinate...i say go with the same wood BUT put a lighter colored table cloth over it when the kids are around. Leave the table bare but with a LIGHTER BRIGHTER CENTERPIECE (maybe sitting on lighter colored place mats) when you want a more formal look...------Is this a good valentines day idea for my girlfriend?The truffles, the wine, the rose petals ... all romantic. Beautiful!!Wining and dining in a public restroom, no matter how fancy the building ... very unromantic! Unhygienic and gross!!The setting completely overrides the romance of the wine/flowers/chocolates gesture.A better option for you would be to skip the wine seeing as you're underage and can't drink in a public place anyway, and go with the flowers and chocolates.------Change emission without affecting material color though glassYou can use a math node to add Is Camera Ray to Is Transmission Ray.In this example the cube emits red rays for the camera and trough transparent materials, but emits green for all other rays.Note also that for the light to go through the glass shader you might need the following node setup:as described in this link:How to illuminate the darkness inside glass objects in Cycles?------I need help picking a paint color for my living room.?I like your idea of bringing the beach inside, and earth tones are said to be best for the living area - very welcoming, inviting and cozy. "Eschelon Ecru" by sherwin williams is a nice shade, I think: As for an accent wall in the dining area, how about a bright, sunny yellow - like "eye catching?"------Would lead glass block detect magic and similar spells?There's quite a lot of lead in lead glass, so my read would be that a pane of the stuff would be easily equivalent to "a thin sheet". Lead glass is a lot older than 400 years, but probably nobody would have made panes out of it. In the medieval-Europe period where most of the D&D lore comes from, glass panes would have been soda lime, and wouldn't have contained any lead.------How do I remove huge gluey sticker tape on glass?My cousin managed to solve it. He used a razor blade scraper and something called in Chinese. I think it's just a kind of bleach used only in Hong Kong.The trick is to use the razor scraper while spraying the sticker with the bleach, so you need to scrape wetly. It doesn't work if you only use the razor scraper and scrape dryly. He found a "putty knife", underneath, completely useless------Anyone have any tips on how to give an uncooperative cat his medicine?Try sticking the pill to a small bit of ham with marmite (disgusting, I know). Make sure the ham isn't too big, or he'll eat the ham and leave the pill. If that doesn't work, put it in a bit of cheese***By the way, I sympathise. My cat's hell when you try to give him pills (I've still got the scars from his kidney infection).------What are some greatWe did all African animals one year. We try to pick some thing to use all through out the house or room. We find decorations for each style we want to do and run with it. Make it the way you want to make it. Traditional is not bad but i know the feeling of over done and wanting something different. All that matters is the reason why you celebrate not how------Help with my Yard sale pricing?Your prices sound good to me. Before my granny died two years ago she would always have a HUGE yard sale every summer and I'd help her. We'd always have pretty cheap prices and we found that it worked better then having more expensive prices. Cheaper prices people buying more things at one time, which results in you getting more money, and getting rid of a bunch of things.------Can Glass top coffee table sets cheapen the look of a living room?No, not cast iron!That would look pretty classy.Hm..my only concern is it matching the wood. If you don't have any other metals in your decor, then I don't know if it's such a good idea.Just see if it looks good- picture it, or you can take something else you have in your house that's metal, and see how it ties in with the room.------Why fill the glass all the way to the top?See the following article, quoting Rav Tuvia Goldstein, "Remember what is minhag and what is Torah Law," with respect to overdoing the wine-spilling thing. Wasting wine unnecessarily is a violation of Bal Tashchit. was in reference to the custom of spilling a bit of wine during mention of the ten plagues. I wonder if it is also applicable to the minhag quoted by the OP------scary dream about a room filled with water and dead bodies! what does it mean?I don't have an answer for your question. But if nobody else does either, and you don't know, you can assume it was from too many horror movies, because if God wanted you to perceive a meaning, he would enable you to do so. (right?)Of course, in my opinion, it has no meaning, aside from reflecting what you already know and feel, like all natural dreams do.------Can anyone help me with advice on giving my cats a pill?Can you get a liquid version? I had to give my cat a liquid medicine that she hated. I squirted the right amount onto her paw, and she licked it off. Now my cats have to take laxatone for their hairballs. One cat hates it, and one loves it. I put it on a straw ( laxatone's really sticky) and rub it on her paw. Same technique for liquids works every time------How do I get my cat to swallow pills?First of all you must not force him to swallow the pills.Then, you can try to mix the pills with the food. If that doesn't work, you can can try to pulverize the pills and mix them with the food. The last thing you can try is to insert the pills in a sausage and then give them to the cat.I hope one of these work.Good Luck------Fraction of light that reaches one of the ends of a long glass cylinder with a point source emitting monochromatic light isotropically at the centerI would be surprised if the fraction did not depend on the critical angle.Think of what would happen if the critical angle was very small and very large.You need to consider to consider the areas, at right angles to the direction of travel of the light, through which the light would pass through rather than volumes. It will help you if you know the area of a spherical cap?Update
An Alexandria Home Office Gets a Makeover
An Alexandria Home Office Gets a Makeover
Regina Haney of Alexandria has started teaching online courses and wants to make over her 10-by-11-foot home office. She tried to design around a drop-leaf desk that belonged to her dad but can't get it to work. Rather than force the heirloom, designer Jennifer Schweikert suggests a large dining table and modern cabinets to maximize space. Try moving the desk to "a place of honor" like the foyer, she wrote. Schweikert, of Just My Style (703-321-6155), is based in Burke. Replace the carpet with Flor tiles to make the space feel less like a spare bedroom. An accent chair makes the room feel inviting. Add a gold throw pillow to tie the color scheme together. Vary the finishes. Arustic table, industrial cabinets and a wrought-iron floor lamp make the room look updated. Replace the blinds with Roman shades. A subtle pattern adds visual interest without distracting from the work area. Use a dining table instead of a desk to maximize work space. Flank it with two chairs, one for you and one for guests. Paint the walls a buttery neutral. The color is Cream by Farrow and Ball. Furniture: Original Home Office three-cabinet credenza in dark gray ($749) and single-drawer CPU cabinet in dark gray ($199), Messina dining table ($799) and Original Home Office desk organizers in white ($79), all from www.ballarddesigns.com); Manchester swivel chair in espresso ($500, www.potterybarn.com); Madeleine armchair in burnt oak ($129) and Couturier's chair ($335), both from www.restorationhardware.com.

Spaces: Antiques and Art Mix in Monte Vista
Spaces: Antiques and Art Mix in Monte Vista
If the objects in a home tell the life story of its owner, the home of and has plenty to say. Their Monte Vista bungalow is jam-packed with antiques and art, and each object has significance for the owners.While Mexican folk art and Asian themes predominate, a visitor never knows what will appear around the next corner - whimsical figurines of a bride and groom or a wooden carving of a saint. Much of the furniture is antique, either family heirlooms or finds from antique stores."We are the keepers of the old things from our families, but we also have bought so many things over the years," Soele said. "Your house should be the history of your life, and ours is. The things we have here remind of us our friends, family, people we've met and places we've been."The living room, with its rich red walls, has an Asian theme, with tall Oriental vases in the front window and other objects scattered around the room. But a dominant piece, the large tin holiday tree in the front window, came from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico."We keep it up year-round and decorate it for Easter and Valentine's, too," Rodriguez said.The wide central hallway that bisects the house has three areas: an antique Asian bar in front, a comfortable seating area in the middle and a large glass dining table at the back. Family photos are arranged on several surfaces, and a bronze sculpture of a ballerina's legs is displayed on a stand. The owners designated one wall as their "arts wall" and covered it with photos of artists and performers they've met.Two red plaster pedestals in the dining area were a must-buy because they're exactly like a pair seen on the TV show "Gossip Girl."The sunroom at the back of the house is called the "jungle room" because of the animal-print upholstery and window sheers, as well as artwork in the room.The kitchen features a century-old wooden table that is used both as a breakfast table and an island for food preparation. China is stored in a metal cage that originally was a locker in the workout area of the Gunter Hotel.Blue Murano glass objects decorate the window over the sink, which also has a stained-glass frame.Dominating the adjacent dinette area is a 5-foot-tall wooden statue of the angel Gabriel, probably from Spain, that the owners found in four pieces in a local antique store and had restored.The two bedrooms are packed with items. Both have antique beds and other furniture. The back bedroom features a wall of crosses and religious figures. The front bedroom is decorated largely in Mexican folk art, including an altar piece the owners bought from a church in San Miguel. The bed also is from Mexico.Last but not least is the ornately decorated guest bath, which the owners call the "ladies room" because all the art objects depict women. The lights on an antique makeup mirror still work.With so many objects in the house, an obvious question arises: Who does the dusting"We have a great housekeeper," Soele said with a smile.

This Leading Designer's NYC Home Is a Wellspring of ...
For architect Giancarlo Valle, designing the Brooklyn loft that he shares with his wife, AD’s Style Director Jane Keltner de Valle, and their two young children was about more than reconfiguring a space to suit a growing family. For Valle—who worked for A-list architecture firms like SHoP and Snøhetta (where one of his projects was the expansion of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art)—before opening his own office in 2016, “This was the project that got me into interiors,” he explains. (Those interiors include a Manhattan townhouse for Barneys fashion director Marina Larroude and a Watch Hill mansion for entrepreneur Kevin Wendle.)He and Keltner de Valle bought the loft in 2014, and Valle left the existing floor plan—with its open living-dining-kitchen area, enclosed den, and bedrooms—intact, while adding elements that defined the spaces. A wall of windows at the far end of the living area seemed like “unfinished space,” so Valle added a low pine screen that runs under the windows and becomes a bench. The screen’s wavy edge echoes motifs found in Art Deco and African art, and is also “a design tool on the computer,” Valle adds. In a corner of the space, he added bookshelves that create a backdrop for a desk designed by the Modernist master Pierre Jeanneret.Valle gutted the kitchen, adding floor-to-ceiling maple cabinets that were meant to feel “like a giant piece of furniture” and a white marble island; he also designed the island’s Donald Judd–influenced pine stools. For the windowless den, Valle used “very strong, David Hicks–inspired wall details,” with a color scheme of midnight blue and Dead Salmon, a Farrow & Ball paint color. In the bedrooms, he added walls of closets and drawers made of plywood.Throughout the spaces, furniture designed by Valle—like the upholstered chair with the curved seat that was partly inspired by the Ethiopian chief’s chair that sits nearby; or the wall-mounted light fixture, a collaboration with the designers Ladies & Gentlemen Studio that projects over the maple dining table, another of Valle’s designs—mixes happily with pieces by Milo Baughman, Line Vautrin, Gio Ponti, and other renowned 20th-century designers, as well as contemporary pieces.Valle, who is at work on a renovation of artist Marilyn Minter’s upstate New York house, a house for artist-designer Fernando Mastrangelo, and whose smile chair, which sits in his living room, is being produced by the New York gallery Les Ateliers Courbet, says that designing furniture “has been really liberating.” For him, as for architects like Ponti and Frank Lloyd Wright, “space, furniture and architecture are inseparable.”This Leading Designer's NYC Home Is a Wellspring of InspirationRELATED: An Idyllic Country House in the Middle of Paris
Which Do You Prefer for a Dining Table Centerpiece?
Which Do You Prefer for a Dining Table Centerpiece?
it depends on how the dining table looks, maybe A or B1. Glass top is better or wooden top is better for dining table?wood is safer. when 6yr old stood on and went through almost gave me an attack the fool was ok but i was not.2. How do I build a dining table that mounts to the wall like a shelf?I liked gold digger's answer, but if you put the table and hinges under the batten so the table would swing UP into place, it would not be dangerous at all3. Is sitting around the dining table and sharing a meal as a family a "dying" art.?I went to Norway not too long ago and we all had dinner at the same time. there was no t.v., just everyone sitting around and shooting the bull. it was very nice and relaxing4. What can we do to fix this wood dining table? (link to picture included)?You may want to try some Old English dark scratch-cover furniture polish on it--but it looks as if the solvent actually destroyed the finish. The polish may not work well. The table looks like it has a veneered top--which can not be sanded and refinished. Try the Old English--it's the cheapest way to go. It's available at most grocery stores or Home Depot5. where I can buy this dining table?Wow, that's a beautiful set. I do not know where you can find it, but definitely high end table. You could put almost any type of rustic/ leather/ wood chairs with it and it would look perfect. Also, when I first saw it, I thought that it may have been custom made from large wooden doors, like from a building. Craftsmen recycle doors like that quite a bit. Maybe you should check with a local craftsman in your area. He could either make a suggestion, or keep your idea on file, so when he gets some wood in, he can build you something very similar. Good luck! ;)6. how do you prevent bowing on a long dining table that was handmade?No. We all work different shifts & pass on the doorstep on occasion. My son is now an adult & even though we do not often eat together as a family he has never been in any trouble. Not even a parking ticket. He does not binge drink, smoke, is not violent & does not do drugs. Does this mean the findings of the report are rubbish or have we just been lucky?7. How to remove sticky stains on wooden dining table?Murphy's Oil soap....it's made specifically for cleaning wood8. will a round dining table look good in a rectangular room?I think it would be great, round tables break up all the straight lines and length in a rectangular room, and they probably leave more room for additional furniture, like buffets, consoles, extra chairs, or even built-in window seats .Just make sure you measure the room, and get a round table that is in proportion to the room size , so that it does not look to tiny. If you think of wedding receptions with round dinner tables, they are great because you can see all your guests , and that makes for easy conversation between everyone. If you have not bought a round table yet, look for one that comes with additional sections, that can turn it into a larger capacity oval table for when you have a larger dinner party. Go for it !! Good Luck xo9. How can I go about making a simple dining table?boards from home depot and bannisters for railings as legs use gorilla glue10. What do you think of 'Morning's Preparation And Serving' morning pome?So aptly captured natures annual feast always laid on so nicely on earths dining table. Refreshingly revived for the young among us savour and whet their appetite on something so different. Here in the U.K.the grass is luscious and so green forming the perfect table cloth for the feast to be laid upon. Two hours until afternoon tea. Good afternoon.11. Is sitting around the dining table and sharing a meal as a family a "dying" art.?well you can truly see which famililies dine at a table together and which ones dont... the families with better values and that are closer together eat together... and it makes sense too, when i was growing up things were hectic and busy and im sure they are even more so today with families. .. but dinner time was the one time where the family was together enjoying 'quality time' ... our family did one even better ... immediately after dinner we would clear the table and clean up the dinner mess together, then sit down and visit in the living room with a family show on primetime running in the back ground... I actually miss that
I Went From Breadwinner to Bread Maker and I'm Loving It
I Went From Breadwinner to Bread Maker and I'm Loving It
My liberal attitude toward work and gender roles was heavily influenced by my mother.At the centre of our two-bedroom apartment, beneath the swirling ceiling design, sat a bevelled glass dining table. And at the head of that table sat my mother. Every day, I saw her inch the upholstered chair back, take a seat and settle in for the tasks at hand: peeling potatoes, writing cheques, checking homework or meeting clients. Like that solid, all-encompassing table, my mother handled everything.But what would I be when I grew up? Anything I wanted, as far as I was concerned. Nothing was off the table.Growing up, there was no distinction between "men's work" and "women's work" in our home. The only division of labour to speak of was the domestic work my mother did inside, versus the occupational work she did outside the apartment.You'll Also Love: Embracing 'Kiddo': Talking To Kids About Gender Of the two, housework impressed me the least. Cooking, cleaning and laundry seemed nothing more than bothersome chores that encroached on weekend fun. But balancing the chequebook? Now, that I was into! I leaned over the table, calculating along in my head as she carried numbers from column to column in the small ledger.Even more appealing was my mother's work outside the home. Monday through Friday, she'd sweep her hair into a french roll, button her freshly pressed blouse, take me to school, then head to the office for a purposeful day writing personal insurance policies. That was what I wanted to be (minus the insurance part): an attentive mother and career woman with a sophisticated 'do.Today, I'm married with a child. I also have a career and great hair of my own. As for gender roles, I don't care who makes the bread, as long as there's food on the table.For years, I was the breadwinner while my husband assumed more of the household duties and childcare. Groceries, laundry and after school pick-up were his domain. Finances, birthdays and morning school drop-off were mine. Homework, dinner and bathtime were divided based on my work schedule.Now the tables have turned. My husband has a full-time office job and I'm freelancing from home. I've gone from breadwinner to bread baker and guess what? I'm loving it!Yes, I'm actually baking bread. Banana bread to be exact. Muffins and cookies, too. I still don't love cooking but baking with my daughter after school is great. Apart from the time together, we get a quality math lesson and healthy homemade snacks!And as it turns out, cleaning and laundry feel like way less of a chore when I tuck them between emails and writing assignments, rather than deferring it all to the weekend.I'm still passionate about my career, but I've embraced this domestic role in a way I hadn't anticipated. I've taken ownership of the entire household operation, bringing well-honed planning and organization skills to the table.You'll Also Love:IRL Baking With Kids: Banana Lentil Loaf As a partner, it feels good to support my husband as he has for me. And as a mother, I appreciate being more present during this stage of school-age parenting where my strength as a teacher shines.I'm sure the balance between household and occupational work will shift again. For now, my husband, daughter and I are all loving the change. I'm happy to work from home, for as long as it works for our home. Most of all, I love that my daughter sees work balanced in different ways.
Furnishings : China's a Fine Way to Make Holiday Dinners Special
Furnishings : China's a Fine Way to Make Holiday Dinners Special
A long time ago, way before those little perforated cartons of cereal were invented, inhabitants of the civilized world sat down to their meals before lace-encrusted tables and gorged themselves on joints of beef with utensils made of silver.And though paper plates, Styrofoam cups, and plastic knives and forks have crept onto the American dining table like insects, silver is still with us. It's in a drawer in the buffet cabinet, about to be dusted off and polished for the holiday dinner party season.But, except maybe at this time of year, nobody entertains at home any more. It's easier to swallow the huge expense of reserving a table for 12 at a restaurant and have the staff deal with the food and the formalities, and let everyone (sometimes even the waiter) go home feeling gypped.Chalk it up to the death of the servant class, or that women spend more time running their careers and less time running around in the kitchen. In a perfect world, their husbands would do that, but they'd still probably be left with the job of selecting china patterns."People definitely judge a household by what they see when they sit down," says Sarah Hanley, a manager at Villeroy and Boch whose South Coast Plaza outlet specializes in fine china. "It's a presentation of the host's personality." Hanley says setting a beautiful table doesn't have to be a lofty pursuit limited to the pages of a Jane Austen novel or White House state dinners. By shedding their grandmother's inhibitions, most people can manage to conjure the proper ambience for about what it cost to feed those 12 hungry people. And they'll score points for tradition.Hanley's goal is to set free the average homemaker imprisoned by wedding gift china so fancy she is terrified to use it."People tend to be ultra-conservative when they venture out to buy china and silver for the first time. It doesn't have to be that way," she says. "And the china you use doesn't have to be made of bone, and the silver can be stainless steel." Part of Hanley's job is to administer protocol to her customers at Villeroy and Boch. There she finds herself carefully adopting the role of Miss Manners while advising her customers on the correct number of forks to use for a three-course meal as opposed to a five-course meal, and when and if finger bowls (a dying icon, at best) are necessary. All of this in a world where slamming down a hamburger while steering onto the San Diego Freeway is the accepted norm of taking a meal.Of course, the dinner party used to serve as the primary excuse for exhibiting one's social status."Victorian women had over 1,800 pieces of silver on the table at one time," says Mary Reynolds, a sales associate at South Coast Plaza's exclusive sterling and crystal store, Lucy Zahran Inc. Among them: a sterling lettuce fork for serving individual pieces of lettuce; a sterling corn scraper; a special spoon for pudding; an elongated spoon for reaching into canisters of horseradish--maybe even a knife rest, "so they wouldn't always have to wash out those big linens," Reynolds says.But the rules for setting a table have changed somewhat to keep up with the microwaveable social graces of the late 20th Century."The trend is toward more formal entertaining," says Helen Russell, manager at the Lenox China Store in South Coast Plaza. "New tableware can be combined with family heirlooms to create an understated elegance that is nostalgic in mood." Hanley says you should start with the basics: white dinner plates are a good background, to which can be added different patterns to suit different occasions. Bone china is always the most formal, she says, but a good porcelain is also a good bet. "And don't be afraid of trim," Hanley advises. "There's nothing wrong with trim." So if that sounds like a manageable pursuit, here are the five basic pieces that Hanley says comprise the well-healed place setting: the basic dinner plate, the salad plate, a teacup and saucer, a bread and butter dish and a soup bowl that doubles as a cereal bowl.Reynolds suggests these flatware complements: dinner forks, butter knives, salad forks, soupspoons and teaspoons.Extras may include open vegetable-salad bowls (Hanley suggests keeping at least two on hand); a gravy boat (although gravy is a bit of a dinosaur in these cholesterol-conscious times); an oval or round platter (for those big productions, like the one you're contemplating for Christmas dinner); sandwich trays (for buffets); and cake plates ("cakes look nicer on a pedestal"). There are also butter dishes and margarine pots, egg cups, napkin rings, ad infinitum.And there are many choices when it comes to bowls. The basic soup (and cereal), the rimmed soup bowl, the cream soup bowl, a bowl for fruit, custard, rice and eggs. "Bowls can be very confusing," Hanley says.Even if most of your dinnerware is made up of florals or some other bold pattern, Hanley says pieces can always be added to change the look of your table, to dress it up or down. By mixing and matching colors and patterns, the dining table is never static, and, as the best chefs know, you'll never serve the same dish twice."By the time you reach dessert, you'll have a whole new set," she says.Jackie Kennedy knew this stuff. Once when entertaining at a state dinner given at Mount Vernon in 1961 in honor of the president of Pakistan, she switched the stiff white damask linen for pale yellows and blues. How nice for her guests, who were charmed by the warmer tones and probably digested everything much more peaceably."In today's fast-paced lifestyles, people treasure the moments they have to just sit with friends and have a good dinner," Reynolds says. "We're all tired of restaurants. The time we spend together is going to be quality time." When shopping for place settings, Hanley suggests keeping in mind the following rules of etiquette: the flatware is placed 1 inch from the edge of the table at place settings that are equidistant from each other (about 30 inches between centers of plates). The napkin may be placed on the plate, unless the first course is in place, in which case it is to the left of the forks. There should never be more than three utensils on each side of the plate, and always place the utensil that is to be used first on the outside. "You should be able to predict what the meal will be from your place setting," Hanley says.The average cost for each place setting runs between $60 and $150 at Villeroy and Boch (Hanley suggests buying service for eight,) and a five-piece set of sterling silver flatware at Lucy Zahran ranges from $200 to $1,000. "Silver is still the first thing a cat burglar goes for," Reynolds says, which would seem to make a good case for stainless steel, available at housewares stores, such as the Pottery Shack in Laguna Beach. They also sell less formal china, stemware and napkins. A five-piece set of stainless runs from $20 to about $60."Most brides are doing silver-plated at around $175 for a five-piece set," Reynolds says. She adds that the high price of silver is based more on the quality of workmanship involved than its market price."There are a limited amount of artisans--most of them are old and there are few young people coming in to replace them," she says. In a cabinet on the shop's mezzanine, Reynolds points out a grouping of the French Christofle silver-plated flatware, consisting of more than 50 different types of utensils, including something called an ice cream knife. All of the forks are facing down, a custom that is in sync with the European habit of eating with the fork held in the left hand, tines pointing earthward."Europeans don't eat like we do," Reynolds says. "You can't shovel your food in if you hold your fork that way. Try it." A few more guidelines on choosing place settings:* Be stylish and ephemeral; don't be afraid to mix and match patterns.* Most spills occur because plates are too small. Hanley suggests using plates 18 inches in diameter.* Paper napkins are an effrontery, especially indoors.* White is always right. On the other hand, black is considered quite sophisticated.* Remember: crystal goes with everything. And some of it is even microwaveable.

Apple Launched a Number of Mini LED Screen Products at the End of 2020, Which Can Realize Thinner an
According to industry sources, Apple plans to launch a 12.9-inch iPad pro and a variety of MacBook laptops with mini LED screens by the end of 2020.This is consistent with the information shared by analyst Guo mingpeng earlier this week. He said that apple is developing six products with mini LED display, which will be released by the end of 2020, including the new 12.9-inch iPad pro, 10.2-inch iPad, 7.9-inch ipad Mini, 27 inch IMAC pro, 14 inch macbook pro and 16 inch MacBook Pro.Guo Mingxuan also pointed out that the new IMAC Pro is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2020. Apple has not updated IMAC Pro since it was first released in December 2017, so users have been waiting for this update for a long time.DIGITIMES claims that Apple will also use mini LED backlight for "some models of LCD displays", but it is unclear whether this refers to IMAC / IMAC pro or a separate display. Apple's high-end Pro display XDR uses 576 LEDs, but it is not a mini LED display. In contrast, the first iPad and MacBook equipped with mini LED backlight are expected to have more than 10000 LEDs.Guo Mingyu previously said that the mini LED backlight display will allow thinner and lighter product design, and provide many of the same advantages as the OLED display used on the latest iPhone, including good color gamut performance, high contrast and dynamic range, and local dimming to obtain more pure black.Guo Mingxuan also said that EPISTAR, Taiwan's largest LED manufacturer, will become one of the suppliers of Apple's iPad and MacBook.
