Furniture designer Patricia Urquiola is known for her bright, overstuffed upholstery for the likes of B&B Italia and Moroso as well as her slightly exotic, woven outdoor pieces for brands like Kettal. Here are eight great houses that show how to incorporate Urquiola's signature modern aesthetic.

Modern living room with purple sofa and artwork

For this showstopping urban apartment overlooking New York City's High Line, furniture is just as crucial as the architecture. Fjord tables by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso join a couple other Moroso pieces, like the Misfits sofa by Ron Arad and a pair of white Nanook tables by Philippe Bestenheider.

When in doubt about moving them out... Considering incorporating weather-proof furniture into your interiors, like Julien de Smedt did for his Brussels loft apartment. The living room includes a “plain old” beanbag, an Other One armchair by Leif Jørgensen for Hay, and two Tropicalia lounges by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso. Photo by Frederik Vercruysse.

Hosu Chair by Patricia Urquiola for Coalesse

Urquiola's signature look extends to the home office with her Hosu design for Coalesse. It's an innovative version of the classic lounge chair, merging lounging and work into one design. With a built-in ottoman; hidden pockets for magazines, notebooks, and tablets; and a hidden threading system for the cords of your electronic devices, the Hosu chair is the digitally wired worker's dream chair.
