Furniture: Gabriella Crespi

Papers pile up for us over the course of the week and by far the one thing I look forward to most is the Weekend addition of the Journal. They have the best fashion/Lifestyle/Home/Food coverage. Today the WSJ Magazine: Fashion Issue arrived. I was excited to read an interesting design article: Cue the ’70s.

Most notably mentioned is celebrated Milanese furniture designer Gabriella Crespi. She is well regarded for her brass covered Z Desk as seen in Aerin Lauder’s dressing room below. These pictures have been around the block and then again but they are still heaven to look at.

I started to do some research on her and found many more pieces that deserve accolade.

Besides working in brass, Crespi is also known for her work with bamboo and rattan. I got the images below from 1st Dibs.
