The extravaganza that is Art Basel Miami celebrates a combination of art, fashion, design, real estate and a perhaps excessive amount of aggressive partying. Naturally, the aesthetically-obsessed will flock to Louis Vuitton’s Miami boutique in the Design District, where the brand is previewing two new pieces from the Objets Nomades furniture collection.

Designer Tokujin Yoshioka created the Blossom Stool; a seat made of wood and leather, inspired by Louis Vuitton’s signature patterned-flower petal monogram. For those who prefer a flashier aesthetic, it also comes in a glossy metal edition, made of a shiny gilded brass.

Then there is the Fur Cocoon, designed by brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana. It’s an updated version of their iconic Cocoon Chair, which swings from a gilded steel and brass hook. The new edition is made of vacuum-molded fiberglass (reinforced with resin, so one doesn’t need to worry about flying off the dangling seat) that is covered in lambskin.

The Blossom Stool and Fur Cocoon will be displayed at Design Miami from November 30 until December 4, and are available for purchase (price upon request) during the design fair. For those not able to make it down to Miami in time, the items may be purchased in the boutique through January. And even if you’re not in the market for a furry egg chair, at the very least you’re sure to get a superb Instagram-worthy photo.
