The smooth curves of artist Cindy Vargas' wood furniture resemble the contours of the human body. "When I decided to pursue art, I started considering the human form," Vargas said. "It is great food for creatively expressing something." Vargas works meticulously at crafting both functional and decorative furniture pieces in her Glendale studio that bring out "gesture, rhythm and musicality," she said. Several of her furniture creations are inspired by mid-20th century designs, Vargas said.

The floor in Tim Hassemer’s Gallery H Custom Furniture and Woodwork shop in Burbank is sticky, and the walls smell of new paint. The gallery, at 2214B W. Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, is slowly taking shape on the inside, still being filled with custom-made woodwork. Several pieces are still in the works for its grand opening. But this furniture is not your mother’s dresser — the works Hassemer creates have a heavy metal influence, as evidenced by the spiky, devil’s-ear designs he gives his work.

Buck Wargo CITY HALL -- Wanted: bulky items such as furniture and appliances. The cost: free. Glendale will be starting a new household collection program on July 3 to replace one in which residents paid a $27.75 fee for city workers to pick up items at a home. The city's Integrated Waste Management Department is dropping the fee to encourage residents to legally dispose of their furniture, appliances and other bulky items, instead of dumping them in the street.

Maurice Barnfather In "The Price," written in 1968 and set in post-World War II New York, Arthur Miller returns to one of his favorite themes: our need to accept responsibility for our own lives. This rarely performed masterpiece, intelligently revived by Glendale's A Noise Within, illustrates this when two brothers gather to dispose of their long-dead father's furniture. Victor Franz, who sacrificed his education to look after their Depression-ruined father and wound up a humble cop, wants redress.

I'm so sick of rental properties being built in Glendale (“Downtown luxury high-rise plan becomes lower,” Nov. 16). It seems as if 50% of Glendale's population are renters, who get to vote. They practically outweigh the primary homeowners that have a long-term, vested interest in this community. Is the City Council so lame that the only way they know how to generate income is taxes on new rental properties? Pathetic! We have enough renters that leave their useless furniture on the sidewalk as it is. Theo Fuller Glendale

Karen S. Kim The Montrose Shopping Park Assn. is looking to offer community members a little something old to go along with the new. The merchants organization is considering bringing an antique market to the shopping park, to run once a month on the same day as the recently established Montrose Harvest Market on Sundays. "The notion of bringing people with money in their pockets significant enough to purchase antique furniture, that seems to me like a good idea," board member John Drayman said.

Karen S. Kim DOWNTOWN -- Kay Waltz was working as a manager for the city of Los Angeles six years ago when her friend, a shop owner in Carmel, invited her to go to Bali on a shopping trip. Waltz resisted at first because of her job, but then realized she wasn't meant to be tied down to a desk, she said. "I love to travel, and I love to shop, and I've always been interested in other cultures," Waltz said Friday. Waltz turned that love, with the help of her shop owner friend, into a business and opened Cat in the Lotus on Maryland Avenue.

Elizabethan costumes, fairy dresses and a hair dryer that any beauty school dropout would be proud to own were just a few of the items on sale Saturday at the A Noise Within theater garage sale. The ghosts of productions past filled the rooms full of items as resident artist Jill Hill and education director Samantha Starr picked up a costume, photo or prop and reminisced about the play it came from. ?This is a great beanie. I think this came from ?Waiting for Godot,?? Starr said.

A couch and mattress on sidewalks on two different streets in Glendale were set on fire seven minutes apart early Saturday, according to the Glendale Police Department. A mattress was set on fire at the 200 block of West Lomita Avenue at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, and about seven minutes later, a couch was set on fire on the 200 block of East Chestnut Street.   “Both were very close to each other, so it was probably the same person walking from one to another, but nobody saw that,” said Glendale Police Sgt. Miguel Porras.

Ken Goldman was only 13 the first time he picked up a 2-by-4 rasp, a very coarse type of wood, and filed it until it resembled an airplane. “I’ve been hooked since then,” said the 61-year-old La Crescenta resident, who is showing his wood sculptures and photography this month at Whites Art Framing & Restoration in Montrose. All of his sculptures are unique, and every single one tells a different story, store owner Miguel Perez said. “It’s best for people to come and see them and enjoy,” he said.

Though the front door to the recently closed Swanson Furniture in Montrose is locked and its dozen showrooms inside are all but empty, longtime patrons of this threegeneration family business are still trickling by to say farewell to Bob and Donald Swanson. The brothers, who took over the business from their parents 35 years ago, closed up shop on June 30. And though they're moving on to other ventures now, the imprint they left in the community is built to last, said Judy Kelly, a La Cañada Flintridge resident.
