Milan Vukmirovic for Trussardi 1911 Furniture

May 1, 2009

Another of our favourite magazines 10 Man turn us onto Trussardi 1911’s new furniture, which is designed by Milan Vukmirovic. It’s pretty rare to see the creative director to take on a hands-on with the home range but clearly Vukmirovic has an extremely clear vision for the brand’s identity. We don’t have prices yet, but we’d rest assured that they’re out of our price range.

Oskar : Unique Living Room Furniture

May 1, 2009

The question between a sofa, chair or bench is one that many families wrestle with as they determine what makes for the best living room furniture combination. Another option is having more unique living room furniture such as “Oskar” by Dune. How do you classify these pieces? Oskar challenges our perception between a sofa, bench and chair. Without the back rest it looks a lot like a bench. The lack of arms and the large space underneath the seat give the appearance that it is not a sofa or chair. Oskar provides enough of an abstract feel to let each person decide what type of unique living room furniture it may be classified as.

Edo Hunter Green Lounge

April 29, 2009

Serene seating. Japanese interior style has often been thought to bring a sense of peace and zen into the home in which it is incorporated, and the Edo Hunter Green Lounge Chair doesn’t deviate from this common association. With its calming presence, this low-lying chair is great for a reception area, as a side chair in an office or living room, or even as part of a dining set. It uses a dark brown, mahogany finished hardwood and hunter green fabric to create a contrast that is pleasant yet does not fade into the background.

April 29, 2009

This year, Armani/Casa presented an exclusive, new line of furnishing fabrics as well as numbered and signed limited editions at the Salone del Mobile (International Furniture Exhibition, April 22-27, 2009) in Milan. One of the highlights from the brand was a new 29,000 euro ($38,500) gold-plated desk. The Giorgio Armani desk has been dipped in 24-karat gold. Italy’s furniture manufacturers cited that the demand for home collections has started to recover in March after a six-month slump. Almost 10 years since its launch, Armani/Casa has an international presence based on 80 outlets in 45 countries.

Crystal Lounge By Donatella Versace

April 29, 2009

Donatella Versace created a chaise longue in crystal, called Ninfa and presented as part of the annual international furniture show, in Milan, Italy.

Donatella’s crystal forms the core of a chaise lounge, a three-tiered curving formation, white leather on luminescent crystal on metal, that invites you to relax.

Pierre Paulin 1965 Tulip Chair

April 23, 2009

Pierre Paulin designed the “Tulip Chair” in 1965. Atop a metal frame, a foam core is covered by a choice of upholstery. Clearly, Paulin was inspired by the opening petals of the flower, which gives the chair its line.

Martin’s Maison

April 22, 2009

Maison Martin Margiela’s long-awaited home collection made its debut at Milan’s Salone del Mobile design show yesterday. On display: rugs, doors, lamps, and various other furnishings, largely in the house’s trademark white (red wine, we guess, is verboten chez Margiela). Check out our previous post, or today’s WWD, for a little background, or if you’re just interested in pictures, here you go. (Oh, and none of the pieces are yet in production, though the brand hopes to have them in stores and showrooms by next year.)
