Explore exotic lands with Armani Casa’s latest homewares collection, inspired by an imaginary journey from Venice to Japan. The luxe-minimalist pieces blend simplicity with top craftsmanship, as Rubelli-designed textiles meet eastern-influenced pieces decorated with streaks and sprays of gold to imbue each one with a soft glow.
Pared-back tables, cabinets, bookshelves and bureaux are finished in gilded silver leaf stucco, a specially designed turtle lacquer and marqueterie de paille, an unusual technique popular in the 1920s and 1930s, where strands of straw are individually flattened and smoothed to create a distinctive pattern.
The Golden Age range also features an assortment of acid-etched and bevelled Murano glass vases and paperweights, as well as tempting gift items, from the gold-and-dark-oak chess set to the cashmere, mohair and merino wool blankets, perfect for lounging by the fireplace.
