My house is full of different kinds of furniture, that are laying there for ages, and that are also serving many purposes of my house. But, today, I would like to talk about a piece of furniture which is relatively new and that I particularly find beautiful.
The furniture I am talking about is a large computer desk which my family bought rather recently from a famous chain furniture store in my country. Even though it was primarily bought to use as a family computer desk, now we use it for practically all purposes, from ironing our clothes to eating our afternoon snacks. Not to mention, of course, the L-shape desk is large enough not only to accommodate our big, old desktop but also to keep some of the best-looking flower vases that our house has.
Anyway, to describe the computer desk, in a bit more detail, it is a brownish wooden (from the oak tree) desk that has perfectly well-rounded corners. Its edges on all sides are curved very smoothly in order to render the desk a rather modern look overall. It’s also very wide and deep, which gives us plenty of room, not only to place a computer but also to do other things which I have already mentioned above. By the way, even though, originally the desk, which can be broken into pieces and assembled easily, had a rather expensive price tag, my family actually got to buy it at a discounted price. In fact, the desk cost us only a little over 200 US dollars, which also additionally included some beautifully-designed metal legs if we wanted to ever use them later on.
Anyway, I find this particular piece of furniture beautiful, mainly because it looks very shiny, as if it is just newly bought. Besides, the particular piece of furniture blends in perfectly and naturally with the other household items inside the room in order to give it a rather elegant look.

Thank you for this nice cue card topic. In fact, the Statue of Liberty, located on Liberty Island in New York, is one of the most impressive and wonderful sculptures in the whole world and attracts thousands of tourists every day from different parts of the world. This is a historical sculpture and was a gift from the French people to the USA, marking the centennial of the liberty of the USA. I am thankful for this cue card topic; the remaining answer is here.
It was made of copper. The structure of the statue was made with a combination of iron and copper. And it was sent to the USA by breaking down the entire statue into several parts. The design of the statue was done by Frederich Bartholdi, while it was made by Gustave Eiffel himself, who is also famous for the construction of the Eiffel Tower in France.
The statue is a symbolic one, and the Lady Liberty has a nice look. The statue is also known as the Liberty Enlightening the World. The statue is in the form of a robbed woman who represents Libertas. Libertas was a Roman goddess. And here, the statue wears a crown on her head, and holds a torch with her right hand above the head. She is also carrying a book in her left arm that contains the date of independence declaration of the USA. The broken chain down at her feet symbolizes freedom.
This is a beautiful sculpture indeed in all terms. Though the symbolic meaning is not known to all, people all around the world come to visit the statue and the island only to enjoy its exceptional beauty. Earlier, the visitors could have reached the torch, but now the visit is limited. It was enlisted with the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 1984.
