Chai Ming Naming: 40-Piece Furniture Collection For Chai Ming, I developed names for a 40-piece collection of high-end furnishings. Inspired by the furniture’s lyrical lines, many names draw from classical dance. The Relevé table, for instance, suggests the intentional placement of a dancer on pointe. Pieces with provenance in mid-century design evoke the golden era of Hollywood. So we have the Hepburn chair, which leans back to regard the room, confident as Katharine herself.
