COLOR! PATTERN! PORCELAIN!

The French jewelry designer Jean Boggio's debut furniture collection at Bergdorf Goodman commands attention. His first foray into home furnishings combines vivid use of robust color, fantastical motifs, and varied shapes that have the clean lines of art deco in a new medium. By working with Taiwanese porcelain manufacturer Franz, he created high relief, textured and lustrous porcelain panels. His collection includes decorative vases, plates and sculpture that have a wit and whimsy the French artisan is known for.

Flowers adorn the facade of this pale aqua console topped with Chinoiserie vases and plates

Intertwined vines and leaves serve as a border on a sharp purple console

Palm tree festooned high back chairs sit around a table with a stately pagoda centerpiece

Look at these panels! The garden of Eden comes to life in richly textured doors in bright blue and lime green.

The blue and green console is to die for. Too bad you can't have them shipped to England.

The bold use of color, texture and patterns in these pieces is outstanding. A wonderful debut collection.

The turquoise color, proportions, tapered legs, and textured door fronts are my favorite elements of SO mid-century modern style. I love love love the console table. What a debut.
