    As furniture becomes more and more tech-driven (e.g., USB ports, chargers, coolers, etc.) we can sometimes forget that claims to advancements in the basic sofa have been around for some time. Today's Westlaw's "Headnote of the Day" e-mail contained the case headnote "Sitting on a couch is not exercise." This got my attention and warranted a deeper look.The headnote comes from Stauffer Laboratories, Inc. v. F.T.C., 343 F.2d 75 (9th Cir. 1965).

    Materials: SVARTSJÖN Hook rack & Bekvam Spice Rack After unsuccessfully searching for a key rack/sunglasses etc holder we stumbled upon the Svartsjon towel rack in our local Ikea. We noticed it fit almost perfectly on the front of the spice rack, which looked great for storing sunglasses. The coat rack is about 1/8″ longer on each end but we think it works and looks great. Simply assemble the spice rack. Then place the coat hooks on the front and mark spots to drill holes for the screws. I found a couple screws in the garage and attached the coat hook to the spice rack.

    After working with this small IKEA desk in our apartment, we realized that the storage and work space just wasn’t cutting it. In order to accommodate space for our large printer and miscellaneous paperwork, we decided to work with the existing desk, but make it a more appropriate size and style for our space! Before We created another storage cubby on the left of the desk using a $12 piece of MDF from Home Depot. We simply made an L shaped frame and added a few top supports using a KregJig. We used 3 1×8 pieces of wood cut to size to make the new desktop and stained them with a…

    Materials: FOTO pendant lamp Here are the sequence of steps I took: 1. Decided that I’m going to turn this pendant lamp into a pivoting wall lamp. 2. Decided how long the pivoting arm was going to be, and drew the side view of the new lamp at full scale. 3. Went to the hardware store and stared for ages at all the bolts and hinges until I finally worked out how to make a pivot with a hex bolt and eye bolts. 4. Made a wooden arm with a short cross piece at one end, and another wooden piece to fix to the wall. 5. Drilled lots of holes: for the cord to pass through, for the eye bolts, for…

    This FROSTA stool was found sad and lonely in the streets of Tel Aviv. After some painting and a new mixed upholstery, it fits perfectly into our weird furniture collection. First – you take the legs off and paint, in this case – a glossy pink did the job. Then – you sew the upholstery of your choice, round base and a sort of tube on the sides. Finally – after adding some padding for comfort, put on the fabric, ruffle it tightly on the bottom of the stool, and tie with some nice ribbon. You can then cut the ruffles to make it look nicer. Tip – After the legs have…

  • 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."
