Hi there, Poang. Hello, Cendy and Nandor and Emmabo. You chairs all look so chipper in your Scandinavian splendor. But here in Burbank, inside an IKEA store brimming with bargain hounds, what I really could use is a little peace. A smidgen of quiet. A respite from the 10,000 others plodding along the blue-arrowed aisles with me today.

OUR homes are meant to be a reflection of our taste. But how do you create a cohesive environment when your favorite designs span centuries and styles? Is it really possible to have black leather Wassily chairs in the same house as your grandmother's 19th century dry sink and a Japanese tie-dye silk throw bought yesterday on Sawtelle Boulevard? "Anything goes," reassures Carol Kipling, a Los Angeles-based designer of furnishings and interiors.

WITH three art fairs and the Pageant of the Masters on tap this month, visitors might set aside a few extra hours to explore the decor destinations on Laguna Beach's North Coast Highway.

Chill out from the heat with an old-fashioned electric fan? No way, you say, if it means some boring looking box. Good thing there's been no cooling trend in the design of fans. The look may be retro, but high-tech touches like soft rubber blades allow for a guard-less cage design. In colors as bright as Hermes orange and as subdued as Eddie Bauer green, the fans make handsome home and personal statements. They offer some stylish, costeffective options to bring your temperature down.

The products introduced at the recent International Home & Housewares Show here straddle the divide between a rising generation that started keyboarding in kindergarten and an aging group asking for larger digital readouts on alarm clocks and microwaves. Tom O'Higgins, who heads a marketing and design firm, tags the groups as tech-obsessed "geeks" and over-50 "geezers" -- "segments of the population who increasingly rule the market."
