Modern Icon

Light as air with an organic, fluid form, Warren Platner’s signature table is just as stunning now as it was when it debuted in the 1960s, when its innovative use of elegantly bent and welded steel wire rods turned serious design heads.

Now available from Knoll, this piece remains just as graceful in any of its available top finishes, from classic glass to a wide array of choices in marble or veneer;

Color Out
Add a splash of color to your yard or patio with the Outdoor Philly Club Chair from designer Damian Velasquez. Drawing on the convention of the classic leather club chair, Velasquez created a durable, eye-catching piece ideally suited for outdoor use. The stainless steel framing is specifically designed to allow for flexibility and comfort while standing up brilliantly to whatever nature decides to throw at it. And no, it doesn’t turn into a roasting rack on hot sunny days; $3,400,

When it comes to enjoying a stunning spring afternoon, nothing beats a good, old-fashioned picnic. Make sure you’re properly equipped with these no-holds-barred picnic sets. Just add food and wine.
