Gabriella Karefa-Johnson

meets Le Bambole designed by Mario Bellini

Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, a Global Contributing Fashion Editor-at-Large and renowned stylist, has handpicked the iconic Bambola armchair to elevate the ambiance of her newly acquired Brooklyn residence. She sought a piece of furniture with a storied history, intertwining art, society, and everyday life—a timeless heirloom with a playful essence. This led her to the Le Bambole collection. Though her new home serendipitously came into her possession, Gabriella held a clear vision for her living room—a space where friends could gather, connect, and revel in exceptional design. The Bambola armchair seamlessly delivered the comfort and playfulness she yearned for, becoming the cornerstone of her stylish sanctuary.

"For me, Le Bambole armchair is a toy piece of furniture. You can get really comfortable in it, but it's also one of the most important Italian turn of the century designs"
