CREATIVITY & FUTURE PROJECTS: Architects take on Retirement Communities

Wow! Oceanic waves in the desert. I love the undulating lines of this Charles Renfro designed concept. Believe it or not, it’s for a retirement community.It’s good feng shui and it doesn’t treat seniors like fuddy duddies. Many other architects have also come up with renderings for the retirement homes of the future. See the slideshow at the Los Angeles Times.

John Strauss Furniture Design

One of the great things about living in High Point, NC is being able to attend the furniture industry’s big biannual market week. Topping my list of unusual –and beautiful– things I saw this week was this table by John Strauss Furniture Design out of Canton, Ohio. All of John’s furniture is made in the USA of sustainable materials and finishes in factories owned and operated by Amish craftspeople.

The table you see here showcases a slab of 50 million year old fossil limestone! Ancient fossils have a vibration similar to crystals. The energy of the ages is embedded in the stone.Feng Shui By Fishgirl just loves ancient fish…and this table has a balance of elements: wood, water (the glass), metal, earth (the fossil). Incorporating not only nature but history and beauty into your space is very positive feng shui.
