Giovanni "Gio" Ponti's furniture pieces read as current today as they did in the 40s.
I was lucky enough to be in Paris earlier this year in time for the Gio Ponti exhibit at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs—which opened my eyes to the work of the genius Italian designer whose furniture pieces read as current today as they did in the ’40s.
Pair that with a recent visit to Vancouver’s Livingspace, where I made a beeline for this stunner of an armchair and was thrilled to discover it was designed by Ponti in 1949. It’s all straight lines and comfort, with walnut Tuxedo-like sides and a perfectly angled strappy back to cocoon into with my latest Tana French thriller in hand.
D.156.3 by Gio Ponti for Molteni & C., from $9,020, available at livingspace.com
