The Pod Squad
This week, The Selby goes home with W magazine design director Edward Leida whose midtown pad looks like a hybrid of retro and sci-fi futurism. Little did we know it was possible to combine those two looks until we saw his warm wood panel walls that work as a backdrop to funky gadgets from the ordinary (floating cabinets and pod light fixtures) to the extra-terrestrial (an alien head-shaped glass sculpture and a Unidentified Foreign Object that looks like a perforated flying saucer). But for those lacking a budget fit for Arne Jacobsen chairs, here are a few ideas on how to outfit your space to replicate that past-meets-future look. Choose from the more obvious pod like touches (a lamp or a table that doubles as a seat) or a crafty tongue-in-cheek set of beaker vases that look like a science experiment.
You can even go more old school than Leida’s 1970s era Braun calculator with this clunker thrown in for good measure.
