Modern & Natural Dresser

Blending modern and natural styles is a precarious balance, but the right juxtaposition can make perfect harmony. The Elm Branch dresser from Ralph Pucci, part of the “After the Storm” collection by designer Chris Lehrecke and his jewelry designer wife Gabriella Kiss, is made of acid-ebonized white oak. The clean lines contrast the bronze drawer pulls resembling mushrooms, like fungi adorning a tree trunk. The result evokes the feeling that life, like good design, can grow from the most unlikely of places. $26,400;
