Why so serious?
The rallying call to abandon the monochromatic and too-serious side of design has become a movement, known as New London Fabulous, that's full of glee and vibrancy in its celebration of sensual beauty and cultural mash-ups. It is an expression of urban pride, chromatic joy and architectural complexity, says Adam Nathaniel Furman, the London-based Argentine-and-Japanese artist and designer who coined the term. The trend is illustrated in the simple yet graphic pout of the Elysée settee from Ligne Roset, or the statement-making stance of the Jericho chair from Allan Switzer, which melds the styles of Biedermeier and Italian art deco into an exuberant (and goatskin-parchment-wrapped!) original.
