Neighbours said Mr Gorokhov fell while trying to lift furniture into his apartment with some workmen, but the former employer of Magnitsky said the fall was suspicious. They were lifting a Jacuzzi through the window, according to Anastasia Berezina, 22, a neighbor who called an ambulance for Gorokhov, told the AP. Ms Berezina said that the equipment Mr Gorokhov and other workers were using was ramshackle. Russian media published photographs from the scene that show a damaged bathtub in the street next to some wooden scaffolding. Bill Browder, the head of Hermitage Capital, the company that Magnitsky was representing when he was jailed, said Mr Gorokhov had been “pushed” but did not elaborate on the claim. In a statement, he said the account of the incident reported by Russian state owned media contradicted witness accounts.

In 1984, art dealer Sandy Millikan sat down with Wendell Castle and said, "Wendell, if you do another show of furniture, you are going to get labeled a furnituremaker. If you want to be an artist and be in the fine arts world, I think you have to deal with the issue of art. Now how do we do that?" (The quote is from Fine Woodworking #59 .) The result was a exhibition of thirteen clocks, including the non-functional "Ghost Clock" which is one of the centerpieces of the modern furniture on display in the permanent collection of the Renwick Gallery in Washington DC. The Renwick, which is part of the Smithsonian Institute, states on their website: "The collection, exhibition program and publications presented by the Renwick Gallery highlight the best craft objects and decorative arts from the 19th century to the present." But it doesn't. And this is what so disappointing to me.

A young married couple looking to find a balance between life as parents and their desire for an active social lifestyle chose to settle down in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in a high rise apartment overlooking the city. They hired HAO Design to create the interior to reflect their fun spirit, along with making it a colorful place for their two young children to play and grow up. With preschool age children and a love for cooking, they requested an open kitchen so they could watch the children in the living room while prepping a meal. Sky blue cabinets are paired with a grey concrete ceiling and an island and backsplash clad in black mosaic tiles. Off the island is a wooden dining table with four different chairs. The living room is furnished with an overstuffed sofa and chair, along with a coffee table at low height making it even more kid-friendly. The low furniture also keeps the views from being obstructed.

For about eight years, Patrick was kicking it solo in his New Orleans, LA Craftsman. He'd spend time in the gardens doing maintenance here and cleaning up there, tending to what he admits was a pretty cookie-cutter-style home. Then his partner Alex Geriner, the founder of Doorman Designs , came into the picture. For the first bit of their relationship they made little updates around the house, until one year ago when the transformation truly started to take off and Alex moved in. After the move-in, the two vowed to inject more personality into their home and have since turned the simple space into a treasure trove of vintage finds and reclaimed goods. Alex's background in furniture design has had a major impact on the home's current style. His studio makes everything from dressers to bed frames, all of which are featured throughout his and Patrick's house.

The fun, functional control of hands-on fabrication is no secret to designers, and it's similarly obvious to kids. You could say the same for the creative potential of simple materials. The new Hamaika furniture project, created by Spanish designer Unai Rollan, taps into that tactile interest, blending simplicity and functionality for both adults and not-there-yets. The name Hamaika is Basque for 'eleven,' which references the project's core design feature: each piece of furniture is made from 11 pieces of wood, each cut to the same length. The little chair in particular captures the pared down inventiveness of Enzo Mari's DIY minimalism with an IKEA-type user-friendliness. The result is a small person sized piece of furniture that would be easy to use as a learning project on tools and dynamic center of balance. Or it could be the base for more creative expression, a blank canvas for your progeny's monstrous Mod Podge masterpiece.

A human intervention was required every 0.9 mile during January 2017 trials. Two months later the results were, if anything, fractionally worse. This is not to say that test drivers were experiencing a potential accident every mile. That particular statistic has actually improved. Critical driver interventions have been much better; up from one every fifty miles to one every 200 miles. Issues and anomalies arose with difficulties navigating lane markings or missing turns, as examples. This demonstrates that autonomous technology is not in itself enough. It also requires a universal improvement in the conditions of roads, unrecognised street furniture and the like. Rival company Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving company, has been working on its own autonomous technology since 2009. However they too still experience driver interventions. The competition cannot be said to be equal though.

In any family, there are a lot of different personalities gathered under one roof. This means that family homes need to be versatile and functional for a variety of different reasons. Especially if it it's an apartment, which tends to be smaller and a whole lot closer to other families. Family apartments need to be specially designed and well thought out. Those of us with families can understand this testament. But that doesn't mean that a family home or apartment should be spartan, dull or even ugly. There are many different ways to create a family apartment that is stylish and functional, in fact- here are three examples. Visualizer: Olia Paliychuk The first apartment showcases the ideal minimalistic style, that is sleek, stylish and neat. The open plan living area is perfect for busy children, with no sharp corners or edges to hurt them.
