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 is a match made in heaven, or at least in that part of heaven where the hip and young creatives types hang out. For its 2012 DreamHome, the Washington Design Center asked a handful of young interior designers to take inspiration for residential spaces from works of craft. Not just from any crafters, but a group of artists whose works are set to be showcased this summer in a Smithsonian exhibition, "40 Under 40: Craft Futures. " What the room decors and the craft creations have in common is that their authors all began their careers after 9/11, and they brought with them a new, more earnest sensibility.

Space Cadets! It's time for the annual Perseid meteor shower, which peaks early Tuesday morning as the Earth crosses Comet Swift-Tuttle's dust trail. Bits of rock will put on a light show as they streak through the atmosphere at 37 miles per second. Flee city lights. Go after 11 p.m., but it's better between 2 a.m. and dawn. That's after moonset, when our side of the planet will be headed straight into the comet's trail. Bring a blanket or a lounge chair and just look up.

Once the homework assigned to her three children grew beyond the boundaries of the kitchen counter, Shari Cohen decided to create a dedicated homework space close to the kitchen so she could keep an eye — and an ear — on its progress while she prepared dinner. "I knew if they were each in their own rooms upstairs doing homework, I'd be running all night," said the Owings Mills mother of Evan, 12, Alec 11, and Lauren, 10. "The other advantage is that they are close enough to help each other," she said.

My small master bedroom is furnished with simple, light-colored maple pieces. Their style can best be characterized as nondescript. Is it possible to give the room a more serene and modern look while keeping this furniture? The room contains a small lounge chair that could be re-covered. You can achieve the look you want simply by taking the room in the direction already established by those light-colored pieces. Put a white slipcover on your lounge chair, for starters. And then buy an upholstered headboard, perhaps box-tufted, in the same or similar fabric as used on the chair.

One look at David Hess' chair -- a sort of lounge chair made out of an old farm plow, a metal frame and some copper strips -- and you know it's making a statement. Maybe it's saying something about how we look at things, maybe something about the intrinsic value of what we throw away, maybe something about seeing things in new ways in a new aesthetic context, maybe . . ."I don't want to get too philosophical here," he says. "I just pick something up and I'm struck with it and then I start from there."

A roundup of new products and servicesBlanket ProtectionRemember last summer when your beach blanket blew away while you were frolicking in the surf? Or worse, that time when you returned from a splash and found that the keys and wallet you'd laid on your blanket were missing? Say hello to the multifunctional Rolle Blanket (named after its inventor, Reno Rolle). The patented blanket features weighted corners to keep it on the sand or over a lounge chair -- no matter how breezy the day is -- and a hidden pocket for storing valuables such as wallets and keys.

A mountain of junk blocks an alley behind Van Brooks' house in West Baltimore - three refrigerators, five televisions, a washing machine, baby crib and lounge chair - nurturing a small ecosystem of rats, cats and insects. Two months ago, a driver asked the city to clear the alley. He called 311, the number that Mayor Martin O'Malley began advertising a year ago as the taxpayers' "One Call to City Hall" for nonemergency services. A city worker told his bosses on Dec. 30 that he had hauled away the junk, cleared the alley and "taken care of" the problem.

Simms, chief executive officer of the Chesapeake and Potomac Region of the Red Cross.
