Furniture is an art form, which is why it’s no surprise that the sleek lines in this modern couch fit perfectly with the bold lines found in the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Paris has a certain “je ne sais quoi” to it, and it’s probably so indefinable because it’s a city that successfully manages to combine its classic architecture with new modern design. To re-create this magnificent juxtaposition, place this modern table inspired by The Louvre in your traditional home, and we promise, people will be saying “oh la la” whenever they visit. Nest, $295 (Photo of the Louvre via The Girl With The Red Bag)
