Janet Ramin - Ever yearn for furniture that’s shaped more creatively like your jewelry? Tired of those boxy plain furniture pieces?  If you’re nodding yes, then we have the furniture for you!  As interior designers, we’re always on the lookout for the unique, and this sculptural furniture definitely breaks out of the box, catches the eye, and can give any room a fresh jolt.

Above is Boca do Lobo’s Baroque interpretation of that coveted gemstone, the diamond. Finished in a glossy amethyst varnish, the Diamond cabinet flaunts faceted doors and sides, ending in gold-leafed lion’s head feet.  Below is the Manuel cabinet, gilded in copper leaf and styled in an ombre finish. The Manuel’s cubist surface reflects a city skyline and sits on top of turned mahogany legs.

Robert Kuo designs very sculptural and organic furniture pieces.  Below, we have his Root dining table and stools, reminiscent of large tree roots and trunks. The base for the pieces is hand hammered and the stools are lacquered in a gold finish.

Also by Robert Kuo, the O Table and Bench (below) remind me of gold link necklaces. Beautiful!
