Last week in London, I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw Piet Hein Eek’s new furniture collection at Liberty. An admirer of his work only via photos, I was stunned when I saw it in person. Weighty and dramatic, the simple yet sculptural pieces radiate depth and texture. We’re dreaming of their arrival in the US. Go to Piet Hein Eek to view.
