Award-win­ning de­signer Pierre Charpin brings fur­nish­ings back to the fu­ture.

We have al­ways se­cretly en­vied the French for their food and fash­ion. Now add fur­nish­ings to the list thanks to Pierre Charpin. Named 2017 De­signer of the Year by Mai­son et Ob­jet, an in­ter­na­tional de­sign fair, Charpin’s work has been show­cased at the famed Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs in Paris. Luck­ily, we don’t have to buy a first-class ticket to the City of Lights to see Charpin’s award-win­ning works, as his fu­tur­is­tic, sculp­tural pieces can be found at Old City’s Ligne Roset. “Charpin’s de­signs bring an el­e­ment of sur­prise and breathe life into a space,” says An­toine Roset, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of Ligne Roset USA. The lux­ury dé­cor brand is the only re­tailer in the United States that car­ries Charpin’s name­sake col­lec­tion. “Ligne Roset has part­nered with Charpin sev­eral times over the years to in­tro­duce a range of prod­ucts--and his de­signs re­main time­less pieces.” The quar­tet of fur­nish­ings in­cludes two of his most iconic de­signs: the eques­trian-in­spired Mo­bidec sad­dle foot­stool and the Slice arm­chair, a col­or­ful, cus­tom­iz­a­ble seat that looks like some­thing suited for Ge­orge Jet­son’s liv­ing room.

Pierre Charpin’s Stump oc­ca­sional ta­ble ($2,590), hewn from one piece of Car­rara mar­ble, is a lap­top ta­ble for the in­te­rior de­sign lover.
