Lighting Science Group Corporation, a developer and integrator of intelligent LED lighting solutions, today announced that on October 7, 2008, the Superior Court of California for Sacramento County issued a preliminary injunction against Philips Solid State Lighting Solutions, Inc., Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. and Philips Electronics North America Corporation (collectively “Philips”) preventing Philips from using or relying on certain confidential or trade secret information obtained from LSG. In granting the motion for a preliminary injunction sought by LSG, the court found that LSG was “likely to prevail on the merits” in its action pending against Philips. The action began in March 2008 when LSG filed a complaint in the Superior Court of California for Sacramento County alleging, among other things, that Philips had misappropriated confidential information and engaged in unfair trade practices.

New Concept in Cat Furniture Gives Feline Friends Their Own Space Instead of on the Computer Keyboard
The Refined Feline has introduced the best of all possible cat furniture solutions: Kit-In Box, a compact and inviting desk-side cat perch, perfect for millions of cat owners who face the daily challenge of sharing their work space with their beloved cat partners. This attractive and convenient all-wood “in-box” attaches to the edge of the desk to keep cats close at hand while maintaining that all-important distance between paws and keyboard.
The compact Kit-In Box has high sides for a nest-like coziness, and a comfortable cushion with a machine washable cover. Besides the clamp for mounting to the desk edge, the Kit-In Box has non-marring feet for those who have the room to place the box on the desk or a nearby side table. This unique patent-pending cat perch was designed specifically for cat owners who work in a home or small office, according to The Refined Feline’s President, Josh Feinkind, who has personal experience with ‘Kitten-on-the-Keyboard’ syndrome.

The Bombay Company’s home furnishing stores across the United States are going out of business.
Bombay, which filed for bankruptcy in September, said a joint venture between Gordon Bros. Retail Partners and Hilco Merchant Resources submitted the winning bid for the retailer’s U.S. inventory.
The amount of the bid was not disclosed.
The winning bidders plan to shut down Bombay’s U.S. stores and keep its Canadian stores open, the Fort Worth-based company said. Read more »
We have an update to a 7 On Your Side investigation into a Peninsula furniture store that abruptly closed.
This is a story that is getting stranger by the moment.
When Bay Area Sofa closed, consumers were angry they’d been left holding the bag.
An empty space in a Burlingame industrial park used to house the store.
Many consumers say they paid for furniture and got nothing in return but excuses.
“I bought a sofa, a sectional, and a ottoman and I paid them $2814.50 in a personal check,” said Jennifer Tagorda, San Francisco. “If you paid a personal check or cash then, yeah, you get a discount.” Read more »
Home sales are slow, and furniture retailers are feeling the pinch. So is this a good time to launch a new furniture empire?
Joe Carron thinks so. He and partner Anand Patel plan to turn a Brandon’s Home Furnishings store in Wellington into a SoHo Living warehouse store.
The pair also has taken over an existing SoHo Living store on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach. Right now the store’s focus is sleek, contemporary furniture for small-scale homes, such as condos. But Carron and Patel plan to expand the store’s offerings, too.
Expanding a furniture business now seems risky. After all, the housing market is expected to get worse before it gets better, and experts predict an uptick is still a couple of years away. Already, there are casualties in the furniture industry: Earlier this year, veteran retailer Modernage closed its doors after 67 years in business.
But Carron and Patel, who are not affiliated with Brandon’s, have a strategy they think will overcome the market. Read more »

The Bombay Furniture Co. of Canada has joined its American parent company in receiving court protection from creditors.
The retailer’s Canadian division said Friday it has obtained an Ontario Superior Court order under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act.
Bombay Furniture said its stores remain open for business as usual, and employee salaries and benefits will continue to be paid during the reorganization process.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based parent company made similar assurances as it filed Thursday under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
“With a tremendous talent pool and an excellent selection of high-quality home accessories and furnishings, we are confident that our business will emerge from this process stronger and more competitive,” stated CEO David Stewart.
Bombay Furniture said GE Corporate Lending and GE Canada Finance Holding will provide US$115 million in debtor-in-possession financing, of which up to $15 million will be available to the Canadian operation.
The Texas court filing said Bombay Furniture had US$239.4 million in assets and $173.4 million in debts as of May 5.
The company has been losing money for three years, with a loss of US$15.4 million in its latest quarter.
Eurway, a contemporary furniture store based in Texas, is opening its first out-of-state location in Tempe.
The grand opening is scheduled for July 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Emerald Center at Interstate 10 and Warner Road. It is the company’s fifth store.
“We’ve been doing business in the Phoenix area for years through our e-commerce Web site,” said Alan Chasak, Eurway’s chief operations officer. “After watching the sales volume increase, in 2005 we decided to visit the area and conduct a market review and preliminary site selection. As soon as we had our feet on the ground, we realized that the Emerald Design Center in Tempe was going to be the home of our first store outside of Texas.” Read more »
