Furniture or Art?
Korean artist and furniture designer Bae Sehwa is on my style radar. Im quite enamored with his unique wood furniture. I was recently invited to a private showing of his furniture and I was instantly in love with the soft curves and simple lines. My favorite piece is his meditation bench ( shown below ) because it truly does have a very zen and quiet visual feeling.
His rare and beautiful handmade pieces made out of walnut have cause a sensation at the Miami Art Basil and the Dubai Furniture Shows. They are objects of desire that only a few can afford. I can't wait to see what else he comes up with next.
So the question remains…art? or furniture?
