Just what we need: More gorgeous stuff to gawk at

blog_SOFA_lv.jpgSOFA NEW YORK, the International Sculpture Objects and Functional Art fair, kicks off to the public today.  W‘s jewelry department got a sneak peek at some of the more fashionable goods, including former psychiatric nurse-turned jeweler Ted Noten’s latest acrylic wonders. His Louis Vuitton pochette, above, accidentally dyed red in the casting process, is one of our favorites. (It’s priced at $60,000.)

A few other gems from the show below:

The fair runs April 16 to April 19 at the Park Avenue Armory.
