An Inside Look at Armani/Casa

Inside the luxe, meticulously designed universe

Armani, the man and his mark, is synonymous with Milan. This spring, during the city’s annual furniture fair, a four-story Armani/Casa flagship—its largest store to date—debuted in the center of town, just a short walk from Via Montenapoleone’s Armani hotel, café, and specialized boutiques. This latest outpost features a full range of home goods, including recently refreshed designs in new and exotic materials—woods, leather, lacquer, metals—such as the Camilla desk in dove-gray leather, the Classic chair with satin-black nickel, and the fabric-backed Levante screen (all above).

The double-height main floor has a dramatic oak staircase that leads up to a mezzanine showroom for fabrics and wallpapers. You’ll also find iconic designs, such as the 1982 Logo lamp in copper, brass, and walnut, now offered as a limited edition of 50 signed pieces ($5,620 each), and smaller gems such as jewelry boxes (below, from $2,020). Kitchens, baths, and carpeting are some of the architectural products available on the lower level. Corso Venezia 14; 39-2/7626-0230,
