Celebrated Designer Ray Booth Gets Personal with Knoll
Knoll recently teamed up with Ray Booth, of McAlpine Booth & Ferrier Interiors, to specially curate a collection of Knoll furniture—one that personally inspires his design vision.
Take a look below at the beautiful New York City apartment that he shares with his partner John Shea, and read below for more on what inspired Ray's collection. Then visit promotions.shopad.net/knoll to enter for a chance to win David Adjaye’s Washington Skeleton™ chair—the same Ray chose for his terrace.
Ray Booth on David Adjaye's Washington Skeleton™ Chair: The living finish in copper is a great juxtaposition to the modern form.
RB on Maya Lin's Coffee Table: The simplicity of the form makes for a beautiful surface.
RB on Mies's Barcelona Chair: Classic and timelessness expressed in modern form.
RB on Mies's Brno Chair: I have an addiction to bar stock steel. There I said it...A-D-D-I-C-T-I-O-N!
RB on Mies's MR Lounge Chair: The epitome of a sexy serpentine form.
RB on the Saarinen Table: I have always liked that this table is a beautiful form at all scales—and that it limits the legs!
RB on the Krusin Lounge Chair: An elegant simple form with the warmth of walnut.
RB on Harry Bertoia's Bird Chair and Ottoman: A great and beautiful organic form that cradles you when seated.
RB on George Nakashima's Straight Chair: It is Nakashima; it feels spiritual.
