FURNITURE DESIGN: Elegant Agnes Armchair by Magni Home Collection

Sometimes I get really excited while doing blog research. I was impressed by finding this beautiful and elegant armchair. It's the 'Agnes Armchair', hand-crafted in Southern California with a white gold leaf finish by Magni Home Collection. Very interesting company with the focus on elegant, stylish and sophisticated furniture pieces. Below you will find the links for much more inspiration from this inspiring company.

More about James Magni
James Magni: Global Modernism. The end result speaks for itself. This is the mantra behind innovative interior and furniture designer James Magni, whose signature aesthetic mixes modern elegance and sinuous simplicity with a strong architectural background. Named as one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designers and famed for his signature aesthetic of “Global Modernism”, James Magni’s award winning designs are frequently lauded by the press for sinuous simplicity with strong, sophisticated architectural backgrounds. The New York Times declared, “…prophetic designer Magni, is trim, tailored, as a Jil Sander suit.“ In 2007, Robb Report Luxury Homes honored Magni Design Inc. as part of their “Top 40 Interior Designers” worldwide.

With a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Magni’s love for residential design was born when he took a job with Dallas firm HMBH Architects. Now, with his Los Angeles-based company, Magni Design, Inc., the designer works with an impressive list of clients from around the world, taking how they live their lives functionally and aesthetically and formulating design concepts specific each project, client, location and budget.

Magni — who travels extensively searching for unique items — describes his design style as “Modern Globalism” and takes his cues from international influences including French items from the 1930s and ’40s, Asian elements, handcrafted African tribal pieces and, most importantly, art. Influenced by such design greats as Mies van der Rohe, Carlo Scarpa, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann and Maxime Old, Magni also incorporates his past training into his interiors, often taking a very architectural approach. “I have immense respect for architects,” Magni says. “Interior designers must understand what the architect is doing and dovetail seamlessly with his or her work. I frequently go back and read about great architects’ philosophies ranging from Le Corbusier to Andrea Palladio.”
