Modern Geometry.

The "Brigham" desk by Ralph Lauren, (Also available with a glass top). $17,000.00

'm craving a bit of geometry these days. Furniture with clean, simple straight lines to circles enveloped by a square, to bold geometric fabrics upholstered on classic forms. A piece of furniture with a repetitive geometric pattern can add a lively "pop" to a room. On the other hand, a simple, uncomplicated piece of furniture can add a refreshing sense of clarity to a room, without being fussy. My desk, pictured above, carries an elegant simplicity that I love. I am also fond of the way Ralph Lauren "foils" a triangular, polished stainless steel sawhorse base with a smooth, polished mahogany wood top. Shown here are some of my Most Excellent "of the moment" furniture picks. All with a geometric flair.
