Farm to Fantasy

There are few places that spark the majesty and wonder of dropping your paycheck on a chair or lamp like Amsterdam-based Moooi. If you have yet to be introduced to these quirky masterminds of high-end whimsy, consider this one of your more lucky afternoons. Whether it's a horse lamp, a chess table or simply a chair that provides the "strange sensation of sitting on burnt furniture," the fairy-tale absurdity of Moooi's studio provides a refreshing shock to the often absurd boundaries we give ourselves and our creativity. And with design rock stars like Studio Job, Maarten Baas and Marcel Wanders at the reigns, you'll be able to name drop to your hearts content...all while you explain the timeless appeal of the pig table in your living room.
