Italian design in DC

As many of you know by now, I am not a modernist.  However I do appreciate the clean lines of many modern products. Last week I attended an event at the Boffi / Maxalto showroom and thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces with you.
I loved the LED lit console seen at the top of the page, even if it felt a bit commercial. The soaking tub above was pretty great too.
The egg shaped tub was probably my favorite, it looks so comfortable! I could see it in a more traditional bathroom with a different faucet.
The furnishings from Maxalto were more my speed especially the sectional above in this great maroon velvet; great for stretching out on movie nights.
Probably my favorite item on view though was an installation of these paper butterflies by artist Paul Villinski which fluttered as one walked by. What do you think, would you install any of these modern fixtures in your house?
