Hyago Large 3-Seat Sofa from Roche Bobois

Butterfly Chandelier by Boatswain Lighting
If you jump at the chance to go to a butterfly sanctuary, then this light fixture’s for you. It’s composed of handmade, porcelain-bisque butterflies, each slightly different and embossed with a delicate damask pattern. The porcelain casts a gentle light. The artist is Englishman Jason Boatswain, whose large-scale fixture hangs in London’s St. Pancras Station. Price upon request, exclusively at Bright on Presidio.
Bouquet Coffee Table by Kenneth Cobonpue
Here, designer Kenneth Cobonpue has translated the floral centerpiece into a sculptural object that’s both eye-catching and functional. The top features a floral relief pattern on fiberglass, and the base is stainless steel. The table is suitable for both indoor and outdoor environments. $1,000 at JANUS et Cie. Find a showroom here.
Cinque Fiori from Corbin Bronze
This bronze sculpture of a garden—28 inches high and 29 inches wide—was inspired by American sculptor Tom Corbin’s visit to The Art Institute of Chicago, where he came upon one of Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings. With Cinque Fiori, Corbin deconstructs the still-life form, taking cues from the Dutch painter’s impasto technique, with evocative results. Limited edition of 80, price upon request. In San Francisco, contact Sloan Miyasato. In Chicago, contact Holly Hunt.
