Now You See It …
The beauty of Philippe Starck’s iconic Louis Ghost Chair is its ability to vanish into thin air, an ideal quality for smaller spaces like this vanity area designed by Troy Beasley. The chair, a modern interpretation of the classic Louis XV, is available in a multitude of see-through hues. This ghost can be purchased for $410 through Beasley & Henley Interior Design, Naples.
Theodore Alexander’s Tula chair makes a clear case for full disclosure. Inspired by 18th century Russian design, the chair’s stainless steel frame and pierced oval wreath cast back is juxtaposed with a contemporary twist—a glass seat. The piece is available at Baer’s Furniture and retails for $3,039.
The Air in There
Casa Italia offers the perfect counterpoint for the clutterbug—a desk that leaves nothing to the imagination. Made in Italy, the Air Desk is completely customizable, offering various glass colors and finishes, including shiny or matte lacquered glass. Sold through Casa Italia in the Miromar Design Center, Estero, it’s priced from $4,580.
Glass with a Splash
Think of it as a diamond for the powder room. The faceted surface of Kohler’s Briolette spun-glass vessel sink creates a dynamic interplay of planes and light. Priced at $663, it’s available at Ferguson Kitchen, Bath & Lighting Gallery, Fort Myers.
Crystal, glass and Lucite add an ethereal sparkle and translucency to the elegant grand salon of a penthouse designed by Kira Krümm Interior Design in The Colony Golf & Bay Club. The Lucite tables, crystal chandelier, glass candlesticks and accessories are available through the designer.
Pretty Prism Catchers
A chandelier is the epitome of the crystal craze and boasts a beautiful bonus—the ability to play with light. Color—like the bold blue multifaceted crystal spheres in Strauss Lighting’s Concorde—ups the fixture’s glam factor and brings each piece into the right-now. Find the Concorde, priced at $2,495, at Strauss Lighting, Miromar Design Center, Estero.
