Designer Touch

Fashion houses bring their craftsmanship and cachet to fine furnishings.

That’s Armoire

Wrapped in leather and walnut bands, Armani Casa’s Gabriel Wardrobe resembles vintage steamer trunks—but with modern touches. The customizable, upholstered compartments are lit by motion-detecting LED lights, and the doors feature interior mirrors.

The Eyes Have It

All eyes are on Fornasetti’s Chair Lux Gstaad. Designed in collaboration with interior designer Anne Lux, this hand-silkscreened, lacquered beauty was first created for a Swiss chalet in its namesake resort town. The playful piece is now part of Saks Fifth Avenue’s Tema e Variazioni series.

Carbon Copy

Typically, you wouldn’t want water getting anywhere near your Louis Vuitton. But, since your flowers need a stylish home, too, the fashion house designed this porcelain replica of its famed bucket bags. Snag a Vase Noé BB, so you can start flaunting your fresh cuts in true, LV-embossed style.

To Have and to Fold

Lawn chairs don’t need to look like they came from a tent manufacturer. If you want to stand out in a crowd, we suggest the recently reissued Pippa Folding Armchair from Hermès. Designed in 1983 by architect Rena Dumas (known for designing many iconic Hermès stores) and Peter Coles, it comes in pearwood or ebonized maple with supple natural cowhide or scratch-resistant taurillon clemence leather.
