Cook up a Modern Classic

So I was loading the dishwasher the other day while watching Stacy and Clinton transform the latest fashion disaster into a style maven, and something Stacy said made a lightbulb go off over my head. The virtual, not kitchen, kind.

She shared a simple rule to look stylish: Choose a classic-shaped garment in a modern fabric. I immediately realized this works just as well with furniture. In fact, this blend of styles often draws me to a piece. It ups the coolness factor.

Look at (or better through) Philippe Starck’s Louis Ghost Chair by Kartell. A modern furniture staple, its beauty blends traditional baroque lines with crystal clear polycarbonate. An indulgence yes, but how these will illuminate your next dinner party.

Or dress a Norwalk Louis XV in a swirly Paradox of brown and blue. You’ll get a warm but kicky spot to sip a cup of tea.

Or curl up with the latest chick lit in a wing chair wrapped in natural seagrass, PB’s warm interpretation of an old family favorite.

So here’s your recipe: Take one part classic-shaped chair and blend well with one part modern material. Voila! Now that’s cool.
