Ralph Lauren Home Goes Gold

Ralph Lauren’s new One Fifth home collection was inspired by one of New York City’s swankiest addresses, and its Art Deco–style pieces are very Marlene Dietrich–ish, very film noir–ish. With a dramatic black-and-gold palette and rich textures such as gold leaf on shagreen and beaded chevron, the line is a departure from Lauren’s all-American, equestrian-esque designs. Likewise, Mr. Lauren’s Deco state of mind was in full force on the runway of his fall womenswear show. The collection ranges from $40 for a glass to $14,250 for a mahogany server and is available at Ralph Lauren, 888 Madison Ave.; ralphlaurenhome.com.
