The United States Army is the land warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces….which is one of the seven uniformed services of the United States….and is designated as the Army of the United States in the United States Constitution.  As the oldest and most senior branch of the U.S. military in order of precedence….the modern U.S. Army has its roots in the Continental Army….which was formed June 14, 1775….to fight the American Revolutionary War from 1775 – 1783….which was before the United States of America was established as a country.

Irish Spring is the brand name of a deodorant soap….which was first marketed by the Colgate-Palmolive company in 1970…..as it was launched first in Germany in 1970….and then it was launched in the US in 1972.

Modern furniture is from the 19th century through the present….which is all influenced by modernism …..with post World War II ideals of cutting excess, commodification and practicality of materials in design heavily influenced the aesthetic of the furniture. It was a tremendous departure from all furniture design that had gone before it. There was an opposition to the decorative arts….which included Art Nouveau, Neoclassical, and Victorian styles….as dark or gilded carved wood and richly patterned fabrics gave way to the glittering simplicity and geometry of polished metal. The forms of furniture evolved from visually heavy to visually light. This shift from decorative to minimalist principles of design can be attributed to the introduction of new technology, changes in philosophy, and the influences of the principles of architecture…..and Modern Furniture Rentals of Austin carried this type of furniture. 

The Silver Arrow Bar on Greystone Blvd. in Austin, Texas was an upscale bar scene on the West Side of Austin in the more affluent area of the city….as the bar wasn’t around long enough to develop an reputation….for it’s tv commercial has lasted much longer than the bar did.
