Many home designers use different objects to add on to the decor of a house.

Many home designers use different objects to add on to the decor of a house. Some of the most used objects are crystal table lamps. They are preferred not only because of their beauty but also because of their function.

Glass art has been around for many years. Though this is the case, the method for creating this type art has barely changed over the centuries. The composition has not changed. It is made from the mixture of silica sand, potash and red lead.

These compounds are mixed together in a furnace at temperatures above 2000 degrees. While hot, the mixture is blown into the desired shape by professionals. The shaped glass object is then fired in an oven and a diamond-tipped gadget is used to make any patterns on it if necessary.

The only way you can know how much skill and expertise was used to create a single piece of glass art is by handling a piece of lead crystal. This gives you a rough idea of how much care and creativity is needed in this field.

The beauty of Crystal table lamps is that they portray the true meaning of simple elegance. The crystals normally come in a wide variety of styles to suit every setting. This is because the crystals can be molded into many different shapes and styles imaginable.

There are several examples of these lamps. The first one is the crystal cross lamp. This lamp is urn shaped and has a brass base to hold it up. The base is then complemented by a criss-cross motif formed by the sweeping curved lines that cross at the base. Due to its elegance, it is mostly used to decorate homes in a traditional style. It can be placed on a living room end table, in an office or study or in the bedroom as a matching pair of nightstands.

In case you are in search of a more modern look, you can get the Discs & Discs crystal lamp. It is made of circular discs which have a nickel accents and a round base. It is ideal for a modern office, living room or bedroom nightstands.

Finally there is there is the most elegant of them, the crystal flower lamp. It is known for its characteristic crystal lotus flower that rests on a brass column base. It can be used to add on to the decor of any bedroom or living room end table.

If you are in need of multi-purpose lighting that is classic and elegant, then crystal table lamps are what you are looking for. You can visit finehomelamps.com which offers with a wide variety of table lamps for living room or table lamps for bedroom to choose from. You will also enjoy free delivery.

Designers With Day Jobs, Marni, Etc.

Have you ever wondered how it is that haute couture fashion houses such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester make money? One possible answer: by being open to opportunities.

Designing uniforms

Earlier this week, the staff at Kensington Palace unveiled their new uniforms, which were designed by high-end British fashion label Jaeger. Won’t be long before Prince William and Kate Middleton can take up residence alongside the gold-trimmed staff.

Antwerp, Belgium-based designer Dries Van Noten may not produce uniforms, but he sure seems to have been inspired by them. Some of his most recent looks have been described as military.

Designing accessories

Dries Van Noten’s peplum pants may have been the talk of Paris during Fashion Week this spring, but one suspects that his shades, which have also been generating a lot of buzz, may outperform the peplum pants at the cash register.

Designing special lines for big-name retailers

Consuelo Castiglioni of Italian fashion house Marni recently designed a capsule wardrobe for Swedish clothing giant, H&M. A capsule collection is a small number of pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.

In so doing, Marni is following in the footsteps of such designers as Walter Van Beirendonck (who, coincidentally, went to the same Antwerp fashion academy as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, another acclaimed Belgian designer. More about Demeulemeester below!)

Like Castiglioni of Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester’s co-alumnus, Walter Van Beirendonck designs a line of clothing for a retail chain, Belgium’s JBC.

Unlike Castiglioni of Marni, though, Van Beirendonck’s lower-end line is for children.

Designing special lines for& websites?

Ann Demeulemeester, along with Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and several other young co-alumnni of the same influential Antwerp fashion school, broke onto the fashion scene by driving a truck filled with samples to London Fashion Week. Leave it to her to find a new way to distinguish herself in the fashion world.

In November 2011, Ann Demeulemeester released a four-piece capsule collection for sale online only.

An all-black unisex collection for Christmas time? How very Ann Demeulemeester!

Having their own shop

Ann Demeulemeester has famously refused to work for any of the major fashion houses that have reportedly offered her a job. She has been running her own shop in Antwerp for well over a decade now.

Another purely Ann Demeulemeester specialty?

This designer prefers not to advertise, relying on word of mouth alone.

It seems that in today’s economy even haute couture designers must be creative about how it is that they make money. Because man, it would seem, can not live by peplum pants alone. Marni and Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck, are all examples of labels and designers with an eye to new opportunities in a tough market.

General Motors Gets Inspiration From Iadt Student Designers

General Motors has invited its five-year partner the International Academy of Design and Technology (IADT) to take a sneak peek at GMs concept cars and new production vehicles at the upcoming 2007 Chicago Auto Show. More than fifty IADT fashion design students will visit General Motors exhibit on February 9, 2007 during the first public day of the Chicago Auto Show. The theme of the show is Runway to future Design and Technology.

Aside from watching the exhibit, the fifty fashion design students will also create sketches of garment designs inspired by the five GM featured vehicles.

The five vehicles that General Motors will introduce at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show are the following:

-2008 Buick Enclave Buicks first luxury crossover SUV that exudes athletic spirit, romantic forms and premium interior
-2007 Saturn Aura Green Line Hybrid voted North American Car of the Year with a demonstration of its environmental commitment.

The sketches or impression gathered and created by the students during the auto show will be used in producing the garments for General Motors for the next two months. Five winning designs are to be chosen and will be showcased at Imagine 2007, an annual fashion show produced by IADT and sponsored by General Motors. The fashion show will take place on May 17 at Chicagos Union Station. Each of the student winners will receive a $500 cash award from GM.

According to General Motors director of advanced design who led the design team of the Chevrolet Volt Concept car, Automotive design and fashion inspire and influence each other. Collaboration between GM and IADT, a school with a strong heritage in fashion, highlights opportunities to expand design vision and fresh ideas.

Kathy Embry, Dean, School of Design Studies at IADT said, We are thrilled to continue our partnership with GM for the fifth consecutive year. We can see a lot of energy in the emotionally compelling designs of all new GM vehicles. The GM Student Design Competition will provide a great opportunity to showcase the talent of future Chicago designers.

Amber Lindlom, senior fashion design student at IADT has also expressed her excitement on the opportunity provided by GM, General Motors exclusive design opportunity is a thrilling chance for IADT students. The challenge to draw inspiration from GMs innovative vehicles and translate them into one-of-a-kind fashion design solutions is a fantastic experience for aspiring fashion designers.

Use These Criteria To Choose E-Commerce Web Designers In London

Silicon Roundabout is the IT Hub in London, which is equivalent to Silicon Valley in San Jose, California. Located in East and Central London, this region houses a large number of web business companies. Of course, you can find web designers in other areas of London as well, but Silicon Roundabout is where you would find the largest cluster of IT companies in the city. If you are looking for e-commerce web developers in London, you have come to the right place.

At the very outset, you need to understand that e-commerce sector is much different from regular web design. E-commerce encompasses a whole range of sophisticated technologies related to handling monetary transactions online. Regular web designers would normally not suffice for building e-commerce sites. You need to specifically look for e-commerce web designers. Here is a list of criteria that you can use to choose e-commerce web designers in London.

1. Check to see if the company is located in or around the Silicon Roundabout. Although a number of good web-related companies exist outside this region as well, you can rest assured about quality if you can find a service within the IT Hub.

2. Ensure that the company you choose is not just a regular web design company, but one that specializes in creating e-commerce web sites.

3. Enquire if their payment gateway can handle the British Pound, the Euro and any other currency that you might be interested in. Many payment gateways predominantly handle only the US dollar. Therefore, ensure that the web developer can offer an e-commerce solution that can handle the currencies of your choice.

4. A website that deals with money transactions has to be extremely secure. Credit card data and other vital information flow to and fro during a financial transaction online. The website needs to incorporate Secure Sockets Layer or SSL in order to protect all online transactions. Data that travels between the client and the server over an SSL-equipped site is encrypted and therefore very secure. Check to see if the web designer can build your site incorporating SSL technology.

5. Ask the designer to provide a list of past customers, and see if you can spot reputed companies in London that have used their services. If their clientele includes a sizeable number of high profile companies, then you can be assured of quality service.

When you are looking for e-commerce web designers in London, use these criteria to choose the most appropriate service to build your site. Spending some time to choose the right designer would pay rich dividends in the long run.

Tips In Choosing Designer Replica Handbags Online

Lets face it: picking up the designer replica handbag thats worth your money could be a harrowing experience. This is proven true with the deluge of online designer handbag stores that sell authentic, second-hand authentic, or replica creations.
So what are the best steps to take when planning to purchase your Louis Vuitton or Chanel bag online? Here are some easy, practical tips:
1.Choose a web site that presents handbag images in multiple angles.
Never settle for web sites that feature mediocre product photos. Choose one that presents its designer replica handbags in front, back, side, and inside photos. Photos of actual handbags are better than images lifted from the official web sites of LV, Chanel, Gucci, and other designer brands.
Look at the actual hardware, top closure, and other details such as buckles, tassels, embroidered logos, etc. Check for honesty – match these images with the product descriptions.
2.Make sure that the materials of the replica bag are equal to those of the authentic ones.
High-quality designer knockoffs should offer the same fabric and materials used in the original bags. If the original Chanel chain bag is made of genuine calfskin leather, you should look for the same in its replica version.
3.Check for serial numbers and proper tags.
Even replica bags should come with authenticity cards and markings to fully replicate the designer bag experience. Check for brand engraving in buttons, plates, and other features.
4.Ensure quality craftsmanship.
What better way to do this step than using an expert eye? Ask for the help of a friend or a loved one who is familiar with authentic brands. If no one is available to do this, do further research online. Again, scrutinize brand labels, materials, and bag details closely. Dont be afraid to ask customer service if you have any questions, or if you spotted any discrepancies between images and product descriptions.
5.Ensure that brand advertising is legitimate.
This tip is much like the summary of all the previous tips. Your designer replica handbag should be exactly how they are described to you. Louis Vuitton replica handbags, for instance, should be made of leather that oxidizes into a honey brown color.
The best way to shop for bags online is to keep an open eye and an open mind. Go for reputable sellers that offer not only high-quality products, but also a good ordering system, quick and reliable shipping, and 24/7 customer service. A good money-back guarantee is also a must.
