Comments Off on patricia urquiola crinoline chairs

patricia urquiola can do no wrong! patricia urquiola can do no wrong! (i apologize if you hear this too much around here but i think it’s the truth.) i love the rustically styled weaving and inspired crewel work on the chair with the high backrest on these crinoline chairs.


distributed, natch, through b + b italia.

agape steel tub – modern rustic

posted by the scholar on October 31st, 2008

Q: Why does this Vieques tub that looks like it is straight out of 1870’s Deadwood appeal so much to me? I half expect to see some gold miner dude in it, wearing grimy long johns with a back button flap, trying to scrub himself clean while he smokes a cigar.


A: Well, duh – it’s designed by Patricia Urquiola for agape, and she can do no wrong as I have previously mentioned. Love her style. This beast is made of two toned steel and has an optional teak backrest and shelf, which totally make this piece as I see it.


See it and more ultra modern bathroom design right over here.

b+b italia canasta outdoor furniture

it may cost multiple mortgage payments and might be just a tad too low to the ground for me, but i swiftly and deftly defy these challenges to present to you the new canasta collection designer by patricia urquiola for the ubercool b + b italia. patricia designed these gorgeous pieces as a nod to past traditions of woven seating, but exaggerated the loose weave to keep a contemporary edge. the collection is made of lightweight polyethylene for durability in the elements, and is offered with high and low backs in white or bronze with a variety of coordinating pillows.
