Pretty in Pink

It may not be October anymore, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about products that benefit Breast Cancer research…especially when those products are so delightful to look at.  For the next year, Hans Wegner’s famous Wishbone chair will be available in pink and 20% of the proceeds will go towards breast cancer research.  I’m a fan of the Wishbone chair, but I’ll be honest…I was less interested in the release of the pink edition than I was in the grand kickoff at Barney’s.  Twenty leading women designers were asked to create cushions for the pink Wishbone chairs that were exhibited at Barneys, then auctioned off to benefit breast cancer research.  The playing field was totally even as everyone was working with the same exact chair as a base…here are the lovely ladies I thought came out on top in terms of creativity.
