Ochre at Home's Manhattan Console, with compositions of various rectangles posed at different angles, is born out of our love for contemporary art — evidenced by Bose Krishnamachari’s ‘Stretched Bodies’ (from our private collection) gracing the wall. The console — more art than furniture — draws heavily from New York’s modern architectural forms and asymmetry of design.
