Kartell

Plastic reigns supreme at this iconic European store, which takes traditional design and modernizes it with this extremely durable material. Virtually everything showcased is manufactured from synthetic polymer—from Philippe Starck’s famed transparent Louis XVI Ghost chairs to Ferruccio Laviani’s must have Bourgie table lamp. There is a humorous aspect to the pieces with items like Gnomes stool-table and Lovely Rita bookshelf. The hard material may not be suitable for couch potatoes, but if you are aesthetically inclined or have abundant outdoor space, the durable waterproof material is a perfect fit.
