What: Marie Coquine floor lamp.
Why: Philippe Starck designed this Mary Poppins-meets-Raging Bull chandelier for Baccarat: at one end, under an ivory umbrella, are 12 graceful lights; at the other is a camel-leather punch bag, which acts as a counterweight; in the middle, supporting the two, is a photographic stand. The contrast could not be more Starck.
