Outfit Your Dream Apartment With New Furniture by Moving Mountains and Vonnegut/Kraft
We know pretty much everyone is focused on deals! deals! deals! this week, but before you descend into the Black Friday of your soul, take a moment to contemplate with us how you might decorate your home if money were no object: On view last week at Colony in New York was a capsule collection of new work by two of New York’s leading design studios — Moving Mountains and Vonnegut/Kraft — and we’re coveting every. single. piece.
Syrette Lew of Moving Mountains continued her deep dive into upholstered armchairs with the graphically-shaped Arc Lounge, in slubby natural linen and cherry wood, and a mustard velvet Salon Club Chair. “The club chair is said to have come from exclusive gentleman’s clubs that were popular in and around 19th-century England,” explains Lew. “In staying with tradition, I aimed for comfort first and foremost, but I wanted to update the silhouette to something that felt neither masculine nor feminine.”
Vonnegut/Kraft introduced two new sculptural furniture pieces — a marble-topped, slate-lacquered credenza, and the white oak Relevé Dining Table. The dining table, says studio co-founder Katrina Vonnegut, “was conceived from the outside corners in, inspired by a ballet dancer’s pointed stance, sturdily poised and arched outward. The angled stretchers, bisecting the “heel” in a curving, loose take on a bridle joint, elegantly yield to a single structural cross bar.” Scroll through to swoon, and contact Colony to purchase.
