A while back we featured the Paris kitchen of trend forecasting pioneer Li Edelkoort. The Dutch native's home remains a favorite, with its mix of well-crafted pieces (a Hella Jongerius vase here, an African stool there). Edelkoort is drawn to wooden Senufo stools, made by the Senufo people scattered across the Ivory Coast, Mali and Burkina Faso, which are carved from a single piece of wood and add a rustic, earthy note to modern spaces. For sources, see below. Above: Above: Li Edelkoort's kitchen in Paris features a multi-ethnic vibe; for more, see Steal This Look: Li Edelkoort Paris Kitchen . Above: Senufo Stools  are available for $300 from Hamill Gallery. N.B. Edelkoort's sensibility extends well beyond the home front and we have long admired her trademark red lipstick. So much so we sleuthed it down: Li Edelkoort's Perfect Shade of Red . For more design ideas for the kitchen, see our Steal This Look gallery of images.
