Design Gift Wishlist
I put together a Design gift list. For the super posh. The design sophisticate. The design lover who can name everything in the Design Within Reach Catalog but is so beyond that now. This awesome individual speaks mid century modern in their sleep but is so fluent they are now playing design jazz.
Confession, this is my wishlist. And it is very MoMA Design Store heavy. I get the MoMA catalogue and go, I want that, I want that, I want that. The MoMA Design Store is like Barney's for designers. Their curator is off the hizoooook. The first item here is a total reach, a total splurge. I want this chair. I have a lot of chair desires and this one is pretty high up. You may recognize it from Men in Black as the chair that Will Smith tried to take a test in, but wound up needing to drag a Saarinen table towards him so he could actually write. That scene is a delightful mod design ode.
The rest of the list includes some quirky fun numbers that make a house a home. Or well, just fucking cool. I have a total thing for skatedecks. These two are super fun. I also want my gold Philippe Starck gnome Attila to be united with his mate (his name is Napoleon). I had to include something Fornasetti, I could probably do an entire Fornasetti only wishlist (and I may!) but I put just one here, this gorgeous vase covered in lips. You'll notice that these pieces go together. If for some reason your living room is completely empty (if it is call me) you could literally just buy this list and be insanely cool. Just saying.
