The Towle Living Barretta flatware set is very modern and a little on the casual side. As an architect, this flatware set was just want I was looking for to go with my mid century modern decorating bent. They wash extremely well in the dishwasher, no rust spots. The black oxide finish on the handles has held up great. The teaspoon is quite large compared to standard spoons as stated in other reviews, but this has no real effect on usage.Read More
This was a gift from the couples registry, so I really have no idea about the performance of the product. I gave it a good rating based on the looks and other reviews.Read More
Very sturdy flatware and contemporary design. Newer flatware pieces of many manufacturers are larger than in the past. The handle finish is not consistent - thinner in some areas than others. It is some sort of metal paint or finish. I thought it would be black but is a gunmetal gray. Nice set and good value.Read More

Flatware looks good but there are small scratches on handle finish. Also, teaspoons are too big-almost the size of the tablespoons.Read More
Great value! Just what I was looking for. Yet, better quality then I expected, for the price. I ordered two sets. If i really liked the flatware, and I did, I wanted to make sure I would have enough for when the holidays or company visits.Read More

Most Popular Types of Garden Fountains
Fountains add the relaxing sound of running water to any setting. Outdoor fountains allow water to spout, jet, pour or trickle into a basin before draining away. Fountains range in size from burbling rock gardens ideal for tabletops to large pieces of public art. If you live in an urban area or a busy apartment complex, you can use a fountain to create a sense of privacy by masking traffic and other noises. When choosing an outdoor fountain, first consider how much space you have. Many yards can accommodate large pedestal-style outdoor fountains while a smaller fountain will create a focal point in a petite flower garden. The longer the waterfall, the more noise it creates; consider volume when choosing your garden fountain.
