Williams-Sonoma, the California-based catalog retailer, has acquired the 27 Pottery Barn stores for slightly more than $6 million. A Sonoma spokeswoman said there will be few changes in the region's single Pottery Barn store in Cherry Hill. "The merchandise mix may change, and staff training will be different, but the store will not be turned into a Williams- Sonoma store at this time," the spokeswoman said. Pottery Barn operates 27 housewares stores in four states, California, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

Last week, in lifting a long-standing ban on photographs of the casket ceremonies at Dover Air Force Base, President Obama walked a tightrope, balancing public opinion and the costs of war. Antiwar activists have lobbied to lift the ban, believing presidents blocked photographs as a way of hiding the human cost of war. On the other side, now that Obama is responsible for waging America's wars, he does not want the public to turn against them...

Faithfully slipping a set amount of his earnings into his savings account each week while living with his parents, 30-year-old Frank Filipek successfully landed his very own bachelor pad. And, he says, it was well worth the wait. With a limited budget and not knowing where he might be in five years, furniture purchases haven't been an easy decision. So instead of planning his next vacation, or laying down his money at the bars, Filipek is busy figuring out how to create "old-house charm.

BALTIMORE - Meg Fairfax Fielding might be a mild-mannered fund-raiser by day, but in her spare time she's the Junque Whisperer, trolling thrift shops, auctions, and yard sales for bits of unrealized fabulousness. On her blog, Pigtown Design ( www.pigtown-design.com ), Fielding often shows off her bargain coups: the steel card catalog she liberated from Goodwill and turned into a home for shoes; boxes of silks and other imported textiles she scored for $5 at an auction; ivory cutlery she stumbled upon in France.

I love holiday decorating. This is the one time of year I really commune with both my inner Martha Stewart and my inner child. It's when I get to spend hours crafting wreaths, cutting angel shapes out of old Christmas cards, fussing over mantel displays, and obsessing about centerpieces and garland. When I'm done, my house is transformed into a magical place where candles flicker, glass ornaments sparkle, and greenery scents the air. All of which helps explain why I braved an icy rain Sunday morning to drive 15 miles to the Pottery Barn store in Glen Mills for a holiday-decorating class.

Finding bedding that fits a bed's style sometimes can be a daunting task, but these days more retailers and manufacturers have it covered. Their solution for stymied shoppers: Buy the bed and the bedding all at once. Designers such as Thomas O'Brien, Kelly Hoppen and Ralph Lauren have been doing it that way for some time. They have their own bedding lines to go with their furniture collections for Hickory Chair, Century Furniture and Henredon, respectively. Store buyers have been paying attention.

For 30 years, Bruce Levy was a furniture sales rep, hawking not-so-fabulous sofas and chairs to retailers more focused on price than style. Then one day in New York, he walked into ABC Carpet and Home to check out the competition. Levy had an epiphany in the aisles of the store's Mitchell Gold boutique, where he found furniture that was great looking, well priced, and displayed with real style. "I just knew something like that would work in Philadelphia," said Levy, who lives on Rittenhouse Square.
