Part of the 'Objets Nomades' collection for Louis Vuitton, Particia Urquiola's Swing Chair has style. This folding piece of luxury travel kit embodies the founding spirit of Louis Vuitton - how to make travel more comfortable for the elite and well-heeled (and if you think I'm kidding, try a price tag of $20,000+). This series is a collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories by 11 notable designers. The Spanish born Urquiola, now based in Milan, is famous for making the old fashioned look trendy again: witness her elegant swing chair. Made from nylon rope, she uses leather cushions for the perfect splash of rich color. And the chair has gold-plated hooks. It was inspired by a handbag! Two hooks support this superior woven mesh throwback to the hammock chairs of the 70s. And doesn't it look so inviting? Can't you just imagine being curled up with a book in this chair on a seaside deck somewhere?
