ABC Carpet & Home's New York flagship store has unveiled a new pop-up shop showcasing Donna Karan's Urban Zen collection of sleek, Bali-inspired furnishings. The line includes craftsman pieces made from reclaimed solid teak and cushions stuffed with fiber from a tropical kapok tree.
I'm generally not a huge "Zen-style" enthusiast, but I think the lines of these teak sofas are absolutely to die for. And if you had a big enough bedroom, the oversize platform canopy bed is truly showstopping. There are also a few really romantic root wood pieces that I love. Better yet, 10 percent of sales benefit Karan's Urban Zen Foundation, which works to preserve culture and empower children internationally.
Donna Karan on the collection:
The first time I went to Bali, I instantly and passionately fell in love. The furniture captured my heart — and my imagination. Here was style; strong, simple and authentic. The teak did the talking, the artisan hand did the sculpting. I met with local artisans and saw detailed modern proportions and the purest, most elemental, yet highly functional shapes.
If you're not in New York, you can check out the Urban Zen website, as well as a couple other stores across the country that retail the collection. Take a look at more photos of the shop below.
