This Ball of Pig Heads was made to celebrate Année du Cochon, or The Year of The Pig, in Chinese Astrology. I Like It.
On the way from one event to another this past week, we passed by the Mave Hotel, located on Madison Avenue at the corner of 27th Street, and were instantly attracted to this display of inflated red and white balloons they have strewn across the floor in an inaccessible part of the hotel lobby, just off the main entrance from the street. Charming!
Inspired by the movie Up, British designer Christopher Duffy created this unique, hand crafted coffee table, where the clear glass top appears to be floating atop lighter than air balloons, from toughened Glass, metal resin composite and toughened steel rods. Limited to an edition of only twenty, this playful piece that would be a conversation starter in any area of your home can be yours for about $9,300.
