ALEXANDRA VON FURSTENBERG ACRYLIC FURNITURE & ACCESSORIES
Los Angeles, California based Contemporary Furniture Designer, Alexandra
Von Furstenberg created Alexandra Von Furstenberg, LLC the brand in
2007, to create luxurious, innovative, modern furniture made of acrylic.
She originally began by designing acrylic tables for her personal home,
and then realized there was a market for her designs. Following her
passion, she launched her first division, a collection of acrylic neon
tables, titled Fearless in March of 2008 and the second division,
Voltage, in 2009, which consisted of acrylic tables in a smokier color
palette. AVF Accessories were added to the collection and include a
variety of tabletop accessories like trays, bowls and much more are soon
to come. All the collections of acrylic furniture and home accessories
are continuing to grow and evolve.
ALEXANDRA VON FURSTENBERG
Designer Alexandra von Furstenberg attended Parsons School of Design and
Brown University, where she studied costume design and art history. In
1995, Alexandra joined the design team of her mother-in-law, American
fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg. During her ten year career at DVF as
Creative Director and later as Director of Image, Alexandra was
instrumental in the re-launch of the iconic wrap dress as well as
reinforcing the relevance of this American brand. After relocating to
Los Angeles in 2006, Alexandra focused on designing exclusively for the
home. A synthesis of art, home
furnishings and fashion, the collection consists of signed, limited
edition pieces made out of acrylic – a nod to the 1970s when acrylic was
widely regarded as the material of the future.
Beginning with a sleek 8-piece collection ranging from side tables to an
oversized dining table, the designs were named in honor of their
inspiration – diamonds (i.e. “Brilliant,” “Trillion”). The gem-like
collection is illuminated with neon colors.
collection “Voltage,” debuting in March 2009, is made of mirror and
smoke-colored acrylic. The 9-piece collection (in addition to an
expanded range of accessories) is sultry, bold, and strong. For
Alexandra, choosing a darker, smokier palette for her sophomore
collection was a natural evolution from the bright, pop aesthetic she
embraced in 2008.
