World Market Is Having a Huge Furniture Sale Right Now, but It Won’t Last Long

World Market

There are few things in this life that give me as much pleasure as shopping for furniture for my apartment. I keep an open mind with regard to aesthetics; I only have a few simple rules. One, never pay full price for a piece of furniture. Two, make sure that each piece in your home is functional but also has a unique quality about it. And three, if a piece you’ve had your eye on is finally on sale, don’t overthink: Just go for it. 

All of this considered, you can imagine how thrilling it was to learn that from now until November 16, World Market is having a huge furniture sale, with select pieces offered up to 30 percent off. World Market designers and buyers source inspiration from all over the globe, which means that each piece — whether it’s an accent chair, a kitchen table, or

George Mason to allow fans at home basketball games

Under Phase 3 of Virginia’s reopening guidelines during the coronavirus pandemic, sports venues are allowed to operate at 50 percent occupancy or with 1,000 patrons, whichever figure is lower.

The men’s team returns five starters and 12 players from last season, when the Patriots finished 17-15 overall and 5-13 in the Atlantic 10. In the A-10 preseason poll, they were picked 10th out of 14 teams. (Richmond is the favorite.)

The Patriots will open the season later this month in the D.C. Paradise Jam at Washington Convention Center, joining Howard, Northeastern and Belmont. Fans are not allowed. The tournament was moved from the U.S. Virgin Islands.

First they lost their jobs in the pandemic. Then a wildfire burned their home.

James Goodrich and his husband, Jason Kramer, both 44, moved to Talent, Ore., almost two years ago to work in the costume department of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

Together for 17 years and married for six, they lost their jobs in April when the coronavirus pandemic shuttered theaters and live performances.

The loss was like a terrible breakup, Jason said. Uncertain about the future, the couple tried to cling to normalcy by making a daily schedule — Jason, who likes to go food shopping, was the only person who left the house.

“The pandemic made us more resilient,” Jason said. “We realized we had each other and needed to rely on ourselves, which was really kind of daunting.”

The couple were relying on savings and a small side business when, five months later, the Almeda wildfire destroyed their home and much of their town. They fled with their passports, marriage

For office furniture sellers during a pandemic, there’s no place like home

Before COVID-19 sent most Chicago workers home in March, office furniture resellers took orders for dozens, hundreds or even thousands of items at a time.

But in recent months, local businesses like Rework and the Office Furniture Center instead have been besieged by the weary work-from-home masses who are snapping up one refurbished desk and chair at a time, wrestling the goods into their cars and dragging them home.

It’s one of many examples of business models changing because of the public health crisis, and it’s an indication that office workers are hunkering down for a much longer stint at home than they initially expected when the downtown Chicago office market all but shut down eight months ago.

Rework has seen noncorporate walk-in and online orders increase to about $100,000 per month, from a pre-pandemic monthly average of $3,000, said Mark Knepper, one of the company’s owners. Business has picked

In Germany, 300,000 school children are quarantined at home.

BERLIN — More than 300,000 school-aged children in Germany are currently quarantined at home because of the coronavirus, according to an estimate by the German teacher’s federation. The news, first reported by the tabloid Bild, comes as some states are considering extending winter breaks to slow infections at schools.

“Our politicians are relying on the health authorities and not the school system itself to protect pupils from infections,” said Heinz-Peter Meidinger, the president of the German Teachers’ Association.

Mr. Meidinger estimates that between 2.5 percent and 3 percent of all students across the country are quarantining either because they are infected with or have been exposed to the virus. Germany’s second nationwide lockdown, which began early this month, does not include schools and day-care centers, which can be shut down individually by health authorities if they are hit by an outbreak.

In its second week of the lockdown, Germany has

Good Golly, Miss Molly! Iconic rock ’n’ roll pioneer Little Richard passed away earlier this year at 87 after battling bone cancer, and now his secluded rural home in Lynchburg, Tenn., has come available at a sliver less than $350,000. Online listing show a sale is already pending.

Lenny Kravitz launched an interior design company in 2003

On a regular day, Kravitz keeps things lowkey when it comes to the notion of being a celebrity. When he opened Kravitz Design Inc. in 2003, he wanted his company to stand on the merits of its interior design work and not his fame. He’s hands on with the process too.

Back in 2012, Kravitz spoke to the New York Times about his
