The fourth-generation Viennese workshop of Carl Auböck combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design. Designed in the 1950s by Carl Auböck II (1900–1957), this modern accent piece suspends an expanse of black leather from a lustrous brass frame. The resulting sling creates a place to keep magazines, newspapers, or a book or two close at hand. Minimal assembly required.
Nourishing, vibrant, and without pretension, paella has held a place of honor and practicality in Spanish homes for centuries. To round out this meal, choose a good Spanish red wine from the Rioja region, a crusty baguette, and a light salad.
