Featuring drawings of chairs and tables by international designers such as Eileen Gray, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Otto Wagner, Isamu Noguchi, Eero Saarinen, and others, ABC of Design slyly uncovers the first letter of each of their names within the piece they designed.

In the beginning, there was the hair. And some of the hair was bad, but it was small. As men and women everywhere worked to improve and increase their lot, however, they stumbled onto some of humankind's most miraculous innovations: spray, gel, mousse, crimping irons, and of course, the perm. With these new tools, people everywhere suddenly found themselves able to coax their lank, lifeless tresses toward glorious new heights. The age of big hair had begun. Now, the greatest of these bouffants, afros, rakes, beehives, and Flock-of-Seagulls have been plucked from their spots in hairdressers' windows and given the respect they so clearly demand. Bigger and badder than you ever dreamed possible, Big Hair goes out to all those people of yesteryear who were unafraid to think BIG. 4- The Chair: An Appreciation (Design Icons) Hardcover In a light-hearted look at how 20th century designers have transformed this everyday item into an object of desire, Colombo discusses how shape, size, colour and materials are used in chair design, and asks whether there is an ultimate chair.

  • Rita Moreno tells all about her ‘near-fatal’ affair with Marlon Brando in memoir
    More info
    Moreno falling for Brando on the set of “Désirée.”His still from their film “The Night of the Following Day.” (AP) ( )She was fiery and formidable on screen, but off screen, and in the arms of her lover Marlon Brando, Oscar-winning actress Rita Moreno, best known for her role as Anita in “West Side Story,” was reduced to a withering, suicidal mess. Her obsessive love for the Method actor “almost proved fatal.” During their eight-year affair, she endured chronic philandering, emotional abuse, a botched abortion — and that’s only the beginning. “I remember how he spoke to me, how he played the drums, how he made love. .. and how I almost died from loving him,” Moreno, now 81, writes in her new memoir, “Rita Moreno.” Although Moreno’s life story is fascinating on its own — she’s one of the only people, not to mention the first Hispanic, to receive an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony — a sizable chunk of the book, about one-third, is devoted to her torrid love affair with Brando. “We were locked in the ultimate folie à deux, a crazy love that lasted for years, until one day I quite literally was forced out of a coma and had to choose life over him,” she writes. Ruby Dolores Alverio arrived in The Bronx from Puerto Rico as a 5-year-old. She started taking dance lessons a year later and by 16 was discovered by a talent scout, who recommended her to famed producer Louis B. Mayer. Mayer took one look at the teen — who had painted herself up to look like Elizabeth Taylor — and in a matter of seconds said, “Sign her!” The second order of business was getting a Hollywood-friendly name. She was calling herself Rosita Moreno, using her stepfather’s last name, when she met with powerful casting agent Bill Grady, who tried some options out. “Ruby Fontino? Marcy Miranda?” The names got progressively worse. “Orchid Montenegro!” Then he stopped himself. “I got it! How about Rita, after Rita Hayworth?” Her voluptuous beauty caught the eye of many older men, including one “very handsome redheaded gentleman” at a hotel opening who was sitting next to a regal companion. “His hairline moved back an inch, as when a predatory animal spots his prey and paralyzes it with ‘that look.’ It was obviously lust at first sight, and I remember thinking, ‘Whooo, this guy don’t waste no time!’ ” she writes. “I have no doubt that this man would have sent someone over to my table to escort me upstairs. Weeks later, she sees her admirer in Life magazine — the young senator from Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy, with his wife, Jackie. Then, in 1954, in a makeup room on the set of Brando’s “Désirée,” in which he played Napoleon, a 22-year-old Moreno met the man who would rock her world. “Just meeting him that first day sent my body temperature skyrocketing as though I had been dropped into a very hot bath, and I went into a full-body blush,” she writes of meeting the 30-year-old icon-to-be. “It was the sort of rush that inspires poetry and songs.” The sex was earth-shattering. “To say that he was a great lover — sensual, generous, delightfully inventive — would be gravely understating what he did not only to my body, but for my soul. Every aspect of being with Marlon was thrilling, because he was more engaged in the world than anyone else I’d ever known,” she writes. But it wasn’t all roses. He seemed to have a darkness, a deep well of need, stemming from his childhood with an alcoholic mother. Possibly as an outgrowth of this, he had “insatiable sexual needs,” which he unabashedly pursued with droves of other women. “He broke my heart and came close to crushing my very spirit with his physical infidelities and, worse, with his emotional betrayals,” she writes. During their relationship, he married twice and fathered children with his wives. But “I couldn’t stay away. In fact, I was becoming addicted to the challenge of winning him over and over again,” Moreno says. Often the way to win him over was to date other men. Moreno took up with a disappointing Dennis Hopper, then with “a human missile. .. Elvis.” “I knew no one could possibly make Marlon Brando more jealous,
