Paul Mathieu for Ralph Pucci
French designer, Paul Mathieu, exhibits his signature style in his Aria collection for Ralph Pucci International. I saw this chaise in the Pucci Showroom at the PDC last month, and it looks even better live! It's polished bronze with a gold finish, ethereal and yet sophisticated, and at $62,400 it's truly a living room sculpture. I don't know if this is a stretch, but I find the shape and the open back of the chair to resemble a human form... it reminds me of a woman wearing a backless dress... provocative to say the least.
Wonder if I can get a recession special?
