Two worlds apart no longer, Italian-based Kartell is keeping consumers sitting at the feet of haute collaborations from renowned fashion houses, most recently: Moschino and Etro, keeping it in the Italian family. Already having produced style-laden armchairs with Dolce & Gabbana and Missoni, Kartell’s latest versions have been touched by Philippe Starck and Piero Lissoni, each intrepid in their own rights. Sit up and take notice as legendary names in fashion and interior decorating marry in a vow to exquisite design.

Appreciated for its technological advancements and innovative approaches to design, Kartell has over fifty years of experience in designing classic furniture. Kartell’s Lucite pieces cover the furnishing spectrum in terms of the wealth of shapes, sizes, and rainbow of colors available.

Starck honed in on transparency and fabric to give Kartell’s Mademoiselle armchair, $860, airy and tactile qualities bringing as much function as fashion into the home. This clever aesthetic partnership boasts harmonious design and utter comfort. The chairs structure is composed of transparent polycarbonate, for a sturdy, yet flexible, fit for a seat made of expanded polyurethane. Mademoiselle’s clear Lucite legs and retro fabric options are sure to suit trendy and eclectic tastes. Think Dandelions and hearts meet street art for a funky, fresh update to any room.

The Pop chair by Piero Lissoni, $1,700, is highly customizable. Composed of combined transparent polycarbonate modules, and upholstered in Etro fabric, a keen eye can distinguish Pop’s punchy allure. The plush cushions provide maximum comfort and come in polyatomic fabrics. Get creative (Haute Living’s fairy-tale-inspired thought bubble begets frogs on gondolas) with your interior space and add a modern touch with Pop.

From establishing a rich international history to revolutionizing today’s home, Kartell brings contemporary chic and whimsy to any space with its latest armchairs. Upholstered in Moschino and Etro, Kartell gives you all the more reason to sit pretty in high-fashion furnishings.
