On the flickering black-and-white screen, the lights dimmed to a grainy gray, and the camera focused unsteadily on a small stage. The curtain rose. There, revealed to the nation for the first time, stood ... a lounge chair. It's impossible to say what the viewers of NBC's Home show thought on that morning in March 1956, when host Arlene Francis unveiled the rosewood-and-leather lounger and matching ottoman, but if any piece of furniture has proved worthy of a network debut, it was the Eames lounge chair.

It was produced and sold by the Herman Miller furniture company for $20.Half a century later, the chair is back, priced at $680.

They painted their cars purple and paraded through the streets of Dundalk. They piled shopping carts with purple doughnuts and cocktail sauce for ritualistic feasting. The threat of celebration grew so palpable the police readied themselves. Fans of the Baltimore Ravens geared up for Super Bowl Sunday yesterday with a near-religious frenzy born of three decades of exile from the peak of American sport. Fearing that fans' stress levels might equal their cholesterol intake during Super Bowl parties today, doctors warned of heart attacks and psychological phenomena known as "birging" and "corfing."

Q: We've just moved into a starter home in the southeastern U.S. Our budget is even smaller than the house itself, but we're hoping to create a somewhat stylish look. Have you got some suggestions?A: When spaces and budgets are small but the sense of adventure is big, retro-styling may well be the way to go.Just now, the 1940s and '50s look is quite hot. So hot, in fact, that designs associated with the era's top names -- like Florence Knoll, George Nelson and Charles Eames -- have become quite pricey.
