Living And In Its Other LIfe, Furniture

India Mahdavi, an Iranian-born, Parisian designer and architect, recently introduced her line of furniture to the United States. The 18-piece collection of tables, chairs, stools, desks and lighting, is a sculptural mix of lacquer, wood and ceramics. Some of it was used to furnish her projects, like the new Coburg Bar and helene Darroze restaurant at the Connaught hotel in London. Ms. Mahdavi began her career working for the interior designer Christian Liaigre, and has continued in a minimal yet playful vein. The Superstarr Dining Table ($27,300), for instance, is oak with four different totem-like legs made of stacked wood and black and white ceramic blocks, above, while the flower Cocktail Table ($17,400), below, has interlocking petals of green, brown and black lacquered wood. Available through Ralph Pucci International.
