Simple Lines With Bold Color


Above is another of those clean-lined vintage 1960s pieces that work so well in classic or modernist interiors. The dealer, NoHo Modern, describes it as a lacquered red-orange campaign desk with brass hardware. The creator is unknown. I like the subtle Asian vibe.

On a very loosely related note, I love how designer David Cafiero, who owns Cafiero Select, used this little red Chinese writing desk in actress Chloe Sevigny's East Village guest room, below, as seen in January's House & Garden. Photography by Francois Halard.
