Navy blue silk and wool rug with abstract gold design


Milan’s Salone del Mobile showcase of top new furniture design


Zaha Hadid Architects introduced three limited-edition rug designs for Ilullian that boast the firm’s signature animated geometries: Interlace, Perspective 01, and Perspective 02 (shown). All are 50 percent wool and 50 percent silk, and measure roughly 8 feet by 10 feet. $11,800–$12,100; illulian.com

Mustard yellow, soft-cushioned, three-seater sofa with fabric cover

As part of their new Re-connecting collection, Zanotta introduced the Za:Za sofa by Venice-based studio Zaven. It takes cues from 1970s design but is made of recycled materials with no glued elements, making disassembly easy. Matte black or red frames available. $9,450–$11,790 for two- to three-seaters; zanotta.it

Light-colored sectional sofa with graceful curve silhouette

Jean-Marie Massaud’s Brera sofa for Poliform reflects a Salone trend toward lighter, more tailored sectional silhouettes. It has an architectural presence without skimping on comfort and a graceful curve that allows its components to conform to a variety of environments.

Dark gray, asymmetrical sofa with sculptural design

Exemplifying the cross-cultural origins of Inoda+Sveje—founded by the design duo Kyoko Inoda and Nils Sveje—the asymmetrical Lars sofa (shown) and Yoko cord chair for Minotti blend her Japanese aesthetic with his Danish modern leanings in elegantly light, sculptural designs. Sofa $14,530; chair $4,525; minotti.com

Wool and silk rug with colorful fruits and lush plants in fall colors

For Kaleido of Life, a new limited-edition collection of rugs designed by Marcel Wanders Studio for Sahrai, each of the three wool-and-silk patterns represents an element of nature (earth, wind, or water) depicted by computerized graphics, such as lush plant life for Earth’s “Charm.” Only six versions of each pattern in roughly 9-by-13-feet and 20-by-15-feet sizes are available. $43,250–$115,050; sahrai.com

Lacquered polymer bench with cushion

The new outdoor seating Dharma collection by Studiopepe for Baxter takes a sculptural, postmodern approach to form.

Price upon request; baxter.it

Wooden wall shelf with 3 shelves

Ethnicraft’s new PI shelves seem to take their cue equally from mid-century design and the studio furniture movement, with a handcrafted wood profile that comes in modules, offering versatile and expandable storage for any room. The system comes in two-, three-, and five-shelf units. From $590; ethnicraft.com

Solid ash wood table and wood chair with white upholstered chair and black stained legs and arm rests

Porro introduced Piero Lissoni’s Nebbia chair and Ryoba table. Nebbia was shown in black-stained ash (a ubiquitous finish this year).

Nebbia, $1,450; Ryoba, $9,450; porro.com

Woven chair with white upholstered cushion for seat and back

One of the most elegant relaunches this year was Exteta’s Poltrona Bergère, designed in 1939 by Franco Albini—arguably one of Italy’s greatest interpreters of chic. Consisting of a woven back and seat over a wood frame, it’s available in four wood finishes and multiple fabrics and leathers. From $7,755; available at ddcnyc.com

Colorful glass handles

Lake Orta, Italy–based luxury bath fixture company Fantini partnered with the legendary, 100-year-old Murano glass studio Venini to debut extensions to its Venezia handles collection.

It includes sensors that automatically detect cookware size to adjust heat to their exact footprint. $5,200; us.bertazzoni.com
