PHOTOS: Rick Owen’s Masterfully Morbid Princess Pad
Since we first got word that Rick Owens–designer of all things favored by People’s Rev staffer Andrew Mukamal, would be transforming New York City’s Salon 94 for a furniture exhibit we’ve been musing on how his at times brutal aesthetic would translate to the bedroom. With his past work as guide, at first we assumed, black leather drapes, a gothic color palette and the requisite skull staring at you from the nightstand. But never the predictable sort, Owens gave us a Pavane fit for a Princess–albeit a dead one. In case you too have been wondering what that looks like, take a peek inside. Said to be inspired by Owen’s own home in Paris the contemporary quarters feature a grave, low-lying bed, as well as an elongated chaise and a duo of horned tables. Part stern modernism part strangely luxurious, it’s probably not exactly the sort of place you imagine Sleeping Beauty laying down to catch a couple of winks. But as we’ve, Owens is loved for his ability to imbue objects with a sense of beautiful danger. And what’s darker than the headboard as headstone.
