ITALIAN STYLE  Designed by Luca Nichetto for Cassina, the 380 La Mise sofa beckons with comfortable polyurethane foam and feather padding covered in removable fabric with distinctive zigzag stitching. Nichetto’s rectangular (pictured), square, triangular and round Torei tables are topped by Carrara marble or red-stained ash. All available in DC through Poltrona Frau. poltronafrau.com; cassina.com

GONE FISHING  Philippe Nigro took inspiration from the rugged cliffs of Manarola, an Italian fishing village, in the design of his eponymously named seating collection for Ligne Roset. A polyurethane foam seat and back, complete with lumbar support and headrest, sit atop solid wood legs (pictured) or a circular steel base. Available at Ligne Roset in DC as an armchair, loveseat, sofa or ottoman. ligne-roset.com

TABLE TRENDS  Bassett Mirror Company’s occasional tables come in numerous shapes; materials that include glass, metal and wood; and finishes such as gold-leaf, platinum and rust. Top row: Camilla and Serena accent tables, Kellie Scatter Table. Middle row: Krier and Clover Scatter Tables. Bottom row: Christie Side Table, Calder and Bristol Scatter Tables. bassettmirror.com

MACHINE WASHABLE  Lorena Canals’ machine-washable rugs are made by hand in India using natural cotton and non-toxic dyes. Pictured here, the Azteca Natural rug in Vintage Blue comes in a range of sizes; a complementary collection of throws, cushions and baskets is also available. A portion of the proceeds from Lorena Canals finances schooling for more than 100 children in northern India. lorenacanals.us

WOVEN BY HAND  The Lattice rug collection was designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Nanimarquina. Handmade in Pakistan in a kilim-style flatweave, the rugs are created using handspun Afghan wool and come in four sizes and two color variations. Pictured here in a beige, turquoise and charcoal-gray colorway. nanimarquina.com

EXTRA DURABLE  Armstrong’s Vivero vinyl floor-tile collection with Diamond 10 Technology incorporates diamond particles for extra durability. The waterproof surface is available in traditional wood (pictured in Dark Chocolate finish) or natural stone looks. It withstands dents, scratches, scuffs and stains and is easy to install. armstrong.com/flooring

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY  Capel, which got its start making braided rugs, is marking its 100th anniversary with two commemorative braided-rug collections. New Homestead (pictured) is an updated version of the company’s oldest braided design, constructed out of polyester, polypropylene and cotton, while Yorktowne refreshes one of its best-selling wool blends. capelrugs.com

CHIC COLLECTION  A complex jacquard construction paired with bi-color vinyl yarns distinguishes the new Mosaic and Wave collections by Chilewich; the Wave floor covering is pictured here. Both patterns are also available as placemats and table runners. chilewich.com

CALIFORNIA DREAMING  Inspired by colors found in California shorelines and sunsets, Architectural Systems’ Malibu Hardwoods flooring collection comes in four hues ranging from grayish driftwood to dark brown. The engineered-oak planks are made from sustainable hardwoods that have been wire-brushed and prefinished with hard-wax oil. archsystems.com

VINTAGE LOOK  Hudson Valley Lighting pays homage to early electric fixtures with Colebrook, a pendant that houses a long, exposed-filament bulb within an open cage. An adjustable cord is covered in black, braided cloth. Available in Aged Brass, Old Bronze or Polished Nickel through Dulles Electric in Sterling, Virginia. dulleselectric.com; hudsonvalleylighting.com

INDUSTRIAL CHIC  Troy RLM Lighting’s dual-shade Aero pendant is part of its Modern Visions collection. The industrial-style LED fixture combines glossy white with one of 20 bold or neutral finishes (tangerine is pictured here) and a white cord. Also available as a wall sconce through Annapolis Lighting. annapolislighting.com; troyrlm.com

BATTERY OPERATED  Designed by Philippe Starck for FLOS, BonJour Unplugged is the diminutive, 10.6-inch-tall, battery-powered sibling of the Bon Jour Table Lamp. A transparent or aluminum-painted base comes with a smooth or wavy acrylic shade in transparent, yellow, amber or gray. A micro-USB connector recharges the light in 30 minutes for a lighting life of six hours. Available through Apartment Zero. apartmentzero.com; usa.flos.com

SPARE SILHOUETTE  The Suspenders LED system from Sonneman combines interconnected metal bars and suspended LED components in a range of formations. The modular chandeliers, first designed by Robert Sonneman in the 1980s in spare, modern style, are now even lighter in scale. Pictured here, the 48-Inch 2-Tier Linear 5 Light Chandelier with a teardrop luminaire. sonnemanawayoflight.com

UNCOMMON SCONCE  Arteriors’ Duane Sconce is anchored by a steel backplate with a vertical spear finished in antique brass. Metal discs with an oil-rubbed bronze finish encircle frosted-glass diffusers. Available through Dominion Electric Supply Co. area locations. dominionelectric.com; arteriorshome.com

SOFT GLOW  The Grace Pendant by Studio Italia Design generates a soft glow through the laser-cut pattern in its metal shade, which is covered in a fabric-like resin material that acts as a diffuser. Designed by Andrea Tosetto, the suspension light requires incandescent bulbs; it’s also available as a flush-mount fixture or sconce. studioitaliadesign.com
