After carving out a career as both a fashion model and a high-profile decorator, Belgian-born Serge de Troyer eventually found himself in the role of furniture designer. His eponymous artisan-crafted collection features luxurious materials like Italian leather, high-clarity Lucite, and hand-polished chrome. Popular pieces, including a transparent Adirondack chair, cowhide coffee table, and iguana-embossed wet bar have helped land the prolific de Troyer coverage in magazines including <i>Elle Decor</i>.
