With the new Armani Casa home design line, Giorgio Armani adapts his signature color palette—subtly hued greens, taupes, and charcoals—and streamlined tailoring to furniture, from sleek tables to armchairs covered in dry-pressed wool and cashmere. At the Armani Casa store, which opened in SoHo last month, larger pieces include an armless chair ($2,495), a set of three wood tables ($1,450), and a bronze lamp with parchment shade ($650, above), while accessories range from bleached coconut wood mosaic boxes ($395 each) to pear-shaped cut Murano glass vases ($695-$1,495) to porcelain serving plates ($95-$275). There are traditional Italian tables with terra-cotta legs, but also Japanese screens with weave-finished wood and place mats made from butal, a plant from the Philippines. Armani Casa: 97 Greene Street, New York, NY 10012; 212-334-1271.
