Gone are the days where a sofa is simply a place to sit or the cabinet simply a storage unit. With an increasing appreciation for unique designs and the importance of beautiful spaces, home furnishings now resemble pieces of art that look completely at home in the halls of Museum of Modern Art in New York or even London’s Design Museum.
Here are some of The Peak’s favourite designer furnishings that we think deserves a place in your luxurious abode.
BLOW AWAY VASE
Designed by Front for Moooi
This royal blue delft porcelain vase seems to be saying “I may bend but I will not break” as it’s blown away by a powerful gust of wind.
Designed by Philippe Malouin for Roll & Hill
Raw, rugged and almost industrial, these series of lamps are inspired by the Brutalist movement that flourished from the 1950s to mid-1970s. Thousands of minute brass pieces are carefully put together by hand to form these architectural ceiling lamps.
Designed by Patricia Urquiola for B&B Italia
It’s hard to miss the intricate pattern that runs down the middle of this outdoor table. The geometric shapes and patterns inspired by Vienna straw is perhaps one of Patricia Urquiola’s most brilliant ideas.
Designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell
Can anyone else feel the Jeff Koons vibes from these deliciously colourful chromatic table lamps?
Designed by Rossella Pugliatti for Giorgetti
We have to applaud Rossella Pugliatti for one of the most creative rocking armchair designs that looks like it was dug right out of an archaeological site. The solid ash wood curves recalls the bone structures of grand beasts that once walked the earth.
Designed by Joris Laarman for Flos
With 10 blown glass cones of varying sized set into a die-cast aluminium body, it’s safe to say that this pendant lamp is truly a work of art.
