A design tour through New York would not be complete without a few edgy stops. Thanks to a nice suggestion by Stacy Bewkes we made a fun stop. The Ralph Pucci showroom has two floors of outside of the box creativity for those with a palette for bold and edgy. Very fresh and creative, this showroom pushes the boundaries of contemporary, leaving no surface untouched. Whether it is your taste or not, it is an impressionable adventure, as you will see from the pictures:Even the walls, floors and ceilings become art.
These walls were all painted freehand by a known local artist.
How appropriate. Ralph Pucci and Andy Warhol knew each other.
Lighting as art. Cool lamps everywhere.
More lighting as art. These sculptural sconces are so heavy that the walls needed extra fortification. They have halogen lights. What piece of art would you place between these sconces?
Is this cool or WHAT. I love this hanging sofa.
An artful mix of old and new. So cool to juxtapose contemporary furnishings against great old architecture. How cool are those contemporary chandeliers? And the table, and the chaise, and the…. well, everything.
Even these two pieces of art have a surreal twist if you note the headless and tailless horses.
A retro lofty feel…
Even the furniture is art.
It is like a trip through the MOMA where everything is for sale. So what do you think? Is this level of contemporary right up your alley or is it too much? Please comment and give us your thoughts-
