    Choosing an office chair is a big decision, as most people spend a large part of the day sitting in it. Sitting for long periods of time puts pressure on your spine. Fortunately, the right office chair eliminates pressure and provides comfort. To ensure that a chair is healthy for your body, there are several features to keep in mind. A fully adjustable office chair 1. Adjustability: One of the top features people look for when buying an office chair is its adjustability.

    Description: my goal is to build a small, cheap and easy to packing away desk to make room when I need to open the sofa bed. Materials: Billy bookshelf,  table top (LINNMON 100x60cm) and one adjustable leg (OLOV). Step 1:  drill the back of the table between existing pre-drilled holes to fix the leg base. Step 2 (optional): screw two L-shaped brackets on the opposite side the one with the leg. You will use these to fix the desk to the bookcase shelf. Step 3: adjust the height of a shelf according to your needs. Step 4: screw the table leg into its base under the board and put your new desk…
  • Modern Dog Bed

    Materials: Dvala fitted sheet, Kallax Shelving unit, Sultan Lade slatted bed base, Vyssa Slummer Mattress for small bed After an exhausting search for a modern dog bed that was reasonably priced, I decided to see if anything at Ikea would meet my need. I was so please at how easy it was to do (under an hour for two beds) and how great they turned out. I have friends asking me to make them for their dogs. I partially assembled the Kallex shelving unit, minus the center dividers. Placing it on its back I added 1×2 furring strips I found at my local lumber store for under $1. About 1 inch…
  • Two upcycled Vestby Wardrobes

    Materials: VESTBY wardrobe My daughter was sending 2 old vestby wardrobes to the dump and as I can’t bare seeing perfectly serviceable furniture going to waste, I rescued them as an upcycling project for my 1970′s inspired guest room. I clad the outside in recycled pine panelling which I had left outside for a few months to weather (it rains a lot here so it didn’t take long!).  I then replaced the muslin curtain with a curtain made from a patchwork of vintage bedsheets. It was made from stuff already taking up space around the house so cost me nothing.
  • Hemnes Bar with hidden door slides

    Materials: HEMNES wardrobe, pocket door slides A Hemnes wardrobe was turned into a bar essentially by changing the hinges and adding a shelf insert. I made a trip to Lee Valley to pick up hidden door slides (pocket door slides) to replace the 90 degree hinges that were standard to the wardrobe from Ikea. Some whittling was required to make the hinges fit while allowing the doors to close and fit properly. The shelf insert is some project pine, stained in Ebony, forming an “H”, with two fixed shelves on the top and bottom, and an adjustable shallow shelf in the middle. The shelves…

  • Federal Circuit Clarifies Test for Obviousness of Design Patents

    2 Oct 2013 | 10:35 am
    Who gets to decide when a design patent is obvious? There was some confusion on that topic until the Federal Circuit handed down its opinion in High Point Designs LLV v. Buyers Direct, Inc., No. 2012-1455 (Fed. Cir. Sept. 11, 2013) (a copy of the opinion can be found here).In the opinion, the panel of Judges O'Malley, Schall, and Wallach confirmed that the obviousness of a design patent is to be determined through the eyes of an "ordinary designer," not an "ordinary observer." What's the difference? A big one actually. The ordinary design test requires the court to engage in a more…
  • Copyright + Trade Dress = Solid Combination For Furniture Manufacturers

    17 Sep 2013 | 7:38 pm
    Furniture manufacturers have a varied arsenal when it comes to protecting their intellectual property. A single item of furniture can be protected by a utility patent (assuming there is functionality), design patent, copyright, and trade dress. If the item or its collection has a name, trademark rights may be available too. Even though there are many tools, the copyright and trade dress combination is a dependable pairing that provides a formidable offense.Amini Innovation Corporation ("AICO") recently deployed this one-two punch against McFerran Home Furnishings. See Civil Action No.
  • Stop Infringement At The Border

    5 Jun 2013 | 6:31 am
    In today's home furnishings marketplace, the importation of goods is a reality that every manufacturer deals with whether they import or not. The importers are often blamed for bringing infringing goods into this country (a reputation that is not altogether undeserved). For manufacturers or importers, it is important to remember that proceedings before the International Trade Commission ("ITC") are an important tool to stopping infringing items from ever entering this country.ITC proceedings are instigated in Washington, D.C. by the holder of intellectual property rights. The ITC has…
  • When Is A Couch, Just A ... Sofa

    7 Mar 2013 | 7:09 pm
    The New York Times recently ran article focusing on couch style and quality. The article, written by Steven Kurtz, may be found here. Kurtz does a superb job of explaining the of what's "under the hood" on a couch and what separates a $13,000 sofa from $599 couch. Included is a great graphic on sofa construction. While Kurtz doesn't expressly address legal issues, the article's discussion of the work and effort put into high-end sofas explains why high-end manufacturers protect their product. The protection may take the form of design patents as well as policing the marketplace for any…

Did you ever have to sit for a long time in an uncomfortable seat – like in a waiting room, or on a long bus trip? You probably did not feel like getting much done after that. What if you had to sit like that for eight or more hours a day, five days a week… until you retire? In addition to back aches, poor circulation and other conditions, sitting in prolonged discomfort can and will drain the motivation out of otherwise productive workers, even if they may not notice…

    7 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    We’re proud to announce that Old Barn Star is featured in the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Flea Market Style. The home design magazine ran a feature called Born in a Barn, offering a nod to all of our products and showcasing one of our hutches. Thanks, Flea Market Style!
