Monica just sent us this great tip:West Chin ("A NY architect who has done the homes of Christy Turlington, Amber Valleta, Shalom, Francois Nars and more.") has designed a collection of furniture and accessories out of Corian with "very clean lines" (Corian is typically used for kitchen counters). Available at FTF Design Studio on 14th street, the pieces range from $160 and up and are hand finished. Some pieces are also available at unicahome.com. (Thanks, Monica!)
