In the home above, you may notice the classic BKF chair which is one of our most popular items at Diseño. They're comfortable and give a modern yet vintage vibe once you know the history behind them. See our collection of BKF chairs here with the choice of leather or hide cover seatings!

Fun Fact: Costanera Center is Santiago’s Tallest Building
Friday, October 17, 2014
Located right in downtown Santiago, Chile, the Gran Torre Santiago building boasts all the popular stores – TopShop, Zara, Levi’s, Bobbi Brown, M.A.C., Espirit and H&M, which are all conveniently located inside the Costanera Center mall. Built in 2012, this is the tallest building in Latin America and the second tallest in the Southern Hemisphere after Australia's Q1 on the Gold Coast.
There are sixty-four floors of jewelers, bookshops, high-end fashion, electronics, department, retail, and accessories; you can even find a car yard. The structure is home to the three largest Chilean department stores Paris, Falabella, and Ripley. The parking lot is also the first in South America to use the "Find Your Car" parking technology by Park Assist making it easier to locate your car after shopping. Starbucks is outside to rejuvenate shoppers after their shopping marathon of carrying heavy bags and walking from store to store. If you’re looking for more of a meal, there are restaurants or food courts on the upper levels to satisfy your hunger. Don't really want to eat out? For patrons who love to cook, the Gran Torre Santiago even has a jumbo supermarket so you can pick up any essential groceries. If you want to turn it into an outing, there’s even a cinema, CinePlanet, often showing recent films in English. What doesn't the tallest building in Latin America have in it??
