When luxury meets furniture

credit: Rick Owens

Rick Owens started making furniture for his own home and soon became a talented furniture designer. His first collection was presented back in 2007 in Paris. The fusion between modest materials with luxurious ones characterizes one of Owens’ most contemporary works.

During the past weekend, the third annual Salon: Art + Design fair in New York showed Rick Owens’ latest furniture line which included some cutting-edge pieces such as a daybed of plywood and alabaster. His designs are more functional than they seem and clearly represent the magic that happens when luxury meets furniture.
