Pierre Paulin

Artifort ABCD Rep Sep08


Available in many colors, including the Momentum fabric by Jack Lenor Larsen

Vintage three piece sofa blue, green.


Pierre Paulin designed this sculptural piece in 1968 for Artifort in two variations: sofa and love seat. This vintage offering, a sofa, was manufactured in France.

Flower Chair

We imagine Darth Vader would look like quite the stylish Sith Lord sitting in this translucent polycarbonate petal. Pierre Paulin, who passed away in June, crafted ergonomic designs for over 50 years and Flower, his first collaboration with Magis, proves that the Force was always strong with this French legend.


Pumpkin Pouffe

The famed French designer Pierre Paulin made pouffe magic in 1969 with his perfectly curvaceous Pumpkin. Ligne Roset reissued the icon in 2008, and it comes in a myriad of colors.

Pros: The combination of black lacquered steel, walnut veneer, and black laminate (or, for a price bump, Corian) lends this reissue of a 1950s classic a luxurious feel, as do the self-closing drawer gliders. It’s almost too chic for a home office­—unless you live on the set of Mad Men.
Cons: When closed, the double-decker drawers appear to be two different sizes, but it’s a front: Upon opening, they’re revealed to be equally puny, just over two inches deep. In the digital age, have roomy drawers gone the way of the eight-track?
