I recently ordered new chairs for the dining nook of my apartment. When they arrived, I had to perform minimal assembly — attaching the wooden legs and adding some bolts under the seat for extra support.
Now, I’ve assembled a lot of furniture in my day. The packaging and instruction sheet typically leave a lot to be desired.
This one got it right.
The instructions were clear, concise and included an illustration for every step. Most importantly, the teeny tiny parts were clearly labeled and packaged together.
No searching through the box for tiny bags. No trying to match bolts to numbers or hard-to-read graphics.
But once you watch the video below, I’m pretty sure you’ll want this door, too.
Currently only a prototype, the Evolution Doorby Austrian designer Klemens Torggler is sleek, modern and requires no floor track to make its way cool transition from side to side. It also has rounded edges so you or anyone in your house don’t lose any fingers walking into a room.
Seriously, watch the video. Then join the ranks of people, like me, who –
I can’t believe The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been open for four years, and I still haven’t gone.
So I’m going in the next couple of months — before the summer crush of kids and family.
Or am I?
Universal Orlando announced just yesterday that the park is launching a new expansion…
Can I really go now and miss all the cool new attractions? We’re talking the actual Diagon Alley, a fully functional Hogwarts Express train that connects the Universal parks, more shops and restaurants from the books, and a new ride called “Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.”
Of course, if I do wait and go this summer, all those kids will be there….which means ginormous crowds and lines and heat and sweat and regret.
Perhaps I can wait a bit longer — what’s a few more months at this point — and go between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That is supposedly the slowest time at the park.
