Love it / Love it: Brushed Seating [Claire Desjardins]

Happy Monday everyone! I always love a painterly abstraction, especially when juxtaposed against a sleek modern environment. The organic brush strokes and bold layered hues of Claire Desjardins' 'Urban Blue' would fit beautifully in a modern setting while bringing in a touch of happy chaos...

And 'The Frilly Chair' by Kartell combines both sensibilities into the same piece, emulating an actual brush stroke bent and molded into a functional object. And while you may think sitting on polycarbonate might not be so pleasant, all of Kartell's chairs have been carefully crafted to be incredibly comfortable, some of the designs having taken years to perfect. So I say, shock your space back to life with a bright jolt of painterly color- whether it's on the wall or under your bum...Enjoy!
