Nice and New: Tord Boontje Crystal Ice Furniture

Renowned tech-meets-folk product designer Tord Boontje debuted his new Crystal Ice furniture collection for Swarovski at the Maison et Objet trade show in Paris last month. The range includes three designs (a bench, table, and stool) which use densely wrapped crystals to create an illusion of floating icicles. If the words "winter wonderland" could ever translate to interior furnishings, he's pulled it off. The collection is completely stunning — almost (almost) too precious to own.
Boontje wasn't alone in creating the Swarovski Crystal Palace; among others, Tom Dixon created a suspended virtual sphere out of crystals and Belgian architect Vincent van Duysen took home an award for his opulent 10-foot chandelier made from cascading crystals. It's not even Valentine's Day yet, but I'm definitely in love.
