Organic Couture ~ when Urban Organic goes Glam!


{organic couture lifestyle photo: log bench by chista ~ Vogue Italia September, 08}
Organic Glam: the beauty and dichotomy of Haute Nature + Organic Couture. And yes, free-form slabs of unfinished wood is ~ sexy. This nature inspired Urban Lifestyle of Modern Decor offers the ultimate in Eco-Luxury by combining the strength of rustic design with the beauty of feminine form. Deep earthy tones and heavy scale are balanced beautifully with metallic legs + plexi-glass bases. Everyone needs to covet at least one showpiece of Organic Art: a perfect addition to any urban dweller, or art lover's ~ open space.


CHISTA ~ knows Urban Organic Glam. Founded in 1990, this design company "explores the roots of primitivism" and creates some of the most impressive primitive-modern forms on the planet. {the goods: *1. Meteor Coffee Table at 55" wide demands attention and is sculptured by nature in pure Teak Root, also available in glam bronze or glam aluminum. *2. "Suar" Free-Form Dining Table}.

The sexy side of organic comes with metallic legs + glossy finishes. The Cast Slab Dining Table from blankblank exemplifies the Organic Couture Lifestyle. Designed by Rob Zinn, the solid cast bronze legs, combined with a salvaged wood slab top, offers a fabulous balance of Eco-Luxury. What makes it green? "The wood is selected from sources of diseased or storm-felled trees and the fabrication is closely overseen to capture a unique spirit in each piece which comes Signed and dated."
