Planning the New York launch of the spring-summer collection, McQueen staffers contacted Hudson Furniture. Their idea: simultaneous installations in McQueen's 2,000-square-foot boutique and Hudson's 8,000-square-foot showroom right above. In both spaces, couture would intermingle with limited-edition furniture and lighting designed specifically for the event by Hudson founding principal Barlas Baylar. His answer: Absolutely. Mannequins strategically stood or sat near pieces such as the Lipstick console and side table, constructed by stacking layers of wood, metal, and acrylic. In the elephantine Tusk chandelier, polished stainless steel replaces ivory. The very goth Black armoire, lacquered in that color, opens with pulls that look like two halves of a giant brooch in a bronze-copper alloy. And a black-lacquered high-backed chair owes its sinuous form to the stingray, a pet?McQueen motif. For more information call 212-645-7800 or visit hudsonfurnitureinc.com.
