Design gallery the Future Perfect has opened Casa Perfect, a West Village showroom in a five-story Italianate brownstone (by appointment only; thefutureperfect.com). Founder David Alhadeff on his favorite rock tables and wood-fired vessels.
“We have a beautiful patchwork curtain ($12,500) by the textile designer Adam Pogue. We had it modified by our curtain guy so it would fit the space perfectly.”
“This wall shelf (price upon request) by Chris Wolston is aluminum with rattan on top. He’s an American designer, but this piece feels very Italian.”
“Jonathan Cross’s ceramics are all wood-fired in Joshua Tree, which makes the glaze unpredictable. This vessel (from $750) is very crusty, brutal, and beautiful.”
“Chen Chen and Kai Williams call this their Geology coffee table ($18,000), as it’s literally composed of 25 to 30 rocks split open.”
“And Marcin Rusak’s coffee table ($7,940) looks like a Rothko. It’s an aluminum form covered in painted-on bronze. It’s an incredibly special work.”
