Port 68 moves to new InterHall spot, bows Jill Seale collab

A look at some of Port 68’s new collaboration with Jill Seale.

After 12 years of showing in InterHall’s temporary spaces, Port 68 has a new, permanent home in the curated space.

The decorative accessory, wall art, lamp and accent furniture manufacturer secured one of the perimeter spaces on the first floor of the International Home Furnishings Center to showcase its offerings in time for this week’s High Point Market.

For this edition and beyond, it will exhibit from InterHall space 105. While the footprint is close to the same size as the company had last October, having the permanent spot has its advantages.

“It will be easier to not have to move things in and out as much. I can spread out a little bit,” said Mark Abrams, co-owner and designer for the brand. “Every market, or every other market, you’re putting down new flooring and building, but that’s what makes it exciting and interesting. There’s a challenge in thinking that every six months, you’re putting together a new ‘store’ or showroom. Now I don’t have to move as much of the stuff around and the walls are built.”

You wouldn’t try to paint a watercolor masterpiece with a kitchen whisk or dig in the garden with measuring spoons, would you?

Fortunately, following a few guiding principles, as well as consulting with professionals like those at The Home Depot, will help ensure you have all the right instruments for the job.

Materials dictate the tools

Not surprisingly, the flooring material you’ve selected is the single biggest determining factor when it comes to what tools you’ll need to get the job done. (For example, the trowels necessary for installing tile have nothing in common with the pneumatic nailer you’ll need for hardwood.) The difficulty level of installation

Gardening Well being And Safety Tips

These days are gone when people used to cook a meal in a crowded, remoted kitchen where most space could be allowed for freestanding kitchen furniture. Planting a backyard is a powerful, rebellious, resilient act. It means being less reliant on the agricultural-industrial complicated to feed ourselves. It means being less depending on governmental programs. It means being purposeful, because producing meals is deeply meaningful, physically partaking, and fun. And it means cash: a 2016 College of California examine showed that new San Jose residence gardeners saved a mean of $ninety two monthly and neighborhood gardeners saved $84 per month on produce than earlier than they began.

The thick stems and plump leaves of jade plant (Crassula ovata) can develop to look like a small tree over time. However, it’s really a drought-resistant succulent that doesn’t thoughts a bit in the event you let the soil in its pot almost fully dry out earlier than you water it again. Should you transfer it outdoors through the summer time, the additional sun and warmer temperatures may help trigger a growth spurt, which may also help your plant get closer to its most six-foot peak.
