Lou Speak Chairs by Philippe Starck

“When you sit on a Lou Speak, you are obliged to raise your level of conversation. If you don’t, your chair will look more elegant than you do,” says designer Philippe Starck. The cocooning swivel chair in particular is both a work of art and a sophistication piece that is timeless in design with fine leather fabric. It is the latest addition to the Lou family, which includes Lou Read, Lou Think and Lou Eat.

Asprey Egg Salt & Pepper Shaker

Asprey Egg Salt & Pepper Shaker
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Quintessentially functional and objet d’art, the Asprey chicken leg salt and pepper shakers are sure to pique the interests of guests. Showcasing an egg-shaped body standing on chicken legs, they are a smartly creative twist to the traditional salt and pepper shaker design. These fine pieces are crafted in hallmarked gilt and sterling silver, making them a luxurious, yet playful addition to any dining table.

The Huntley Cabinet is a show stopper as it balances imagination with the refinement for which designer Kelly Wearstler is known. This versatile piece fits perfectly on a yacht or in a home. The tri-level pyramid shape crafted from a black stainless steel body and an American walnut interior highlights the piece’s stunning artistry. The fronts of all drawers and doors alternate between white parchment and clear and champagne-seeded mirrored glass accentuated with hand-sculpted pulls, giving the piece a modern,
yet timeless look.

The Ghost Collection by Studio Drift

The Ghost Collection by Studio Drift
Designed by Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn, The Ghost Collection is an ensemble of futuristic furniture handmade using the finest materials and the latest laser and 3D technology. These chairs boast a mysterious, luxurious beauty. The Ghost Collection is designed to look almost invisible, but when placed under distinctive lighting, the chairs are transformed by their internal, elusive ghostlike figures that showcase the contrast between endless freely floating airiness captured in rigid form. These chairs remind us that what you see is not always what you get.
