Alexander Wang’s Hip Hangout

BY Rebecca Sherman // 03.16.15

Leave it to Alexander Wang to reinvent, in a fit of irony, the beanbag chair. In sumptuous black leather or shearling with a geometric bronze base (and priced at $8,800), the slouchy basement furniture of our youth has been elevated to art … or couture, as the case may be. Wang, the creative director for Balenciaga, is known for his sleek urban style and predilection for black. Two years in the making, his first capsule home collection with luxury Italian furniture maker Poltrona Frau debuted last month during New York Fashion Week and is available to order. The limited-edition three-piece issue includes, aside from the two beanbag renditions, a portable bar cabinet in matte black shagreen with interior chunky brass shelves and recessed wheels ($18,500) to zip from beanbag to beanbag. At Scott + Cooner, 1617 High Line, Dallas, 214.748.9838; Internum, 3303 Kirby Dr., Houston, 832.242.9470.
