Trendy & Fun Design Resource

Irwin Weiner ASID -- If you're ever in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY, make it a point to stop in at the Future Perfect, a trend-setting design store that stocks home items that blend great art, design, and craft instincts. They carry fashion for your home from imaginative and playful designers, all curated with a good eye.

If you can't make it to Brooklyn, there's convenient online shopping on their website.

I enjoyed the diverse mix of playful and sophisticated design objects, ranging from wallpaper (like the London Toille samples below, updated and urban takes on classic toille from Timorous Beasties) and lighting to tabletop and furniture.

For more info: Go to the Future Perfect website for more information and the latest design merchandise.


The photos below will give you an idea of some of the items that really caught our eye.



From Qubus, these porcelain Abstract Vases (2006) look wonderfully crumpled.

The Future Perfect founder, David Alhadeff

Today's Lazy Susan, the Three Sixty Table (2005) by Studio Mauerer Hendrichs. Love the skate wheels!

Colorful plastic balls a-go-go with Hugh Hayden's whimsical Strict Chair (2008). 

Eat in style off these porcelain Pummaroriella Pizza Plates (2006); Massimo Giacon for Alessi.

Lacquered wood and glass, with interchangeable legs, the Showtime Multileg Cabinet (2006) by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona.

Love this deconstructed stainless steel and glass Blow Up Table (2004) from Fernando and Humberto Campana for Alessi.

Tongue-in-cheek ancient artifact, Jason Miller's 2009 Woolly Chair; seat is bison hide and industrial felt.

Classic 2000 modular, adjustable shelving, Ronan and Erwan Bourroullec's Self Shelf.


2006 Showtime Double Poltrona Sofa by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona combines a Jetson's plastic frame with a traditional leather seat. So clever.
