Goth designer and frequent Kell on Earth reference Rick Owens is in town this week (at the Bowery Hotel, no less) to debut his furniture exhibition titled “Pavane for a Dead Princess” at Salon 94 gallery. This is Owens' first time showing his furniture foray in New York, so he had to make a strong impression, like two tons of Paris-imported alabaster strong. His exhibit is inspired by his bedroom and showcases a bed and daybed created from the abundance of alabaster. Owens is a self proclaimed daily napper, telling WWD “I like reclining more than sitting.” Looks like Rick Owens disciple Andrew Mukamel may be trading in his Versace chair for some new bedroom furnishings soon.
