RANT to the Seahawks for wearing those neon green uniforms last Thursday night on nationwide TV. I saw my TV screen and immediately adjusted to a darker tone in response.

Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Reynolds… what do these powerful names have in common? Flawless flesh. You’ve tried plenty of expensive treatments.

Functional yet eccentric, the furniture designed by Michael Beitz will give you some food for thought!

We have all looked at functionality to understand the form of the design, but sometimes you have to look beyond it, this is exactly the emotion I feel after browsing through designer Michael Beitz’s sculptural furniture designs.
