Karim Rashid Butterfly Chair

Karim RashidThere is no doubt Egyptian-born, globally-trained designer Karim Rashid is trending volcanic right now in the design world. His designs are fun, feisty and rare gems. His self-proclaimed style—“sensual minimalism” or “sensualism” as he tells designboom.com in a Proust-style interview. Rashid accomplishments are so vast, we won’t begin to list them here, albeit he has seen and done it all. He even published a book entitled, Karim Rashid I Want to Change the World published by Thames and Hudson, 2001. (Photo Credit)

If you are the life of the party, people immediately befriend you wherever you go and you love color and lots of it, then Rashid’s style could be your own. He uses every color from the rainbow and some he has even created himself. Anyone that can wear a cotton candy pink suit and manage to look delicious and dashing at the same time has it going on in more ways than one. His designs have his personality written all over them. His penchant and talent for design is far reaching outside of his interior design spaces, he has his own lines of house wares, lighting, packaging, art, fashion, branding and logos, surfaces, fabrics, and furniture.

Everything he touches leaves a trail of vibrant color and shapes and curves that literally dance before your eyes in the most delightful way.  Smashing hues of pink, purple, blue, green, red and more cover everything from sofas to hangers.

In honor of Rashid’s design genius, we’re excited to offer one of his brilliant designs…the Karim Rashid ButterflyChair in a bold turquoise hue, chrome steel frame and Italian design. This designer chair would make a perfect armless dining chair to accompany one of Rashid’s exuberant tables. If you can relate to this elegant seating then you may have just found the entry to your own StylePath. For more information about Karim Rashid and his world view his presspak.
