Visiting the home goods shop on the lower level of the department store La Rinascente is like going to a friend’s dinner party and wishing you could copy her fabulous taste. More than 100 international designers, including Driade (pictured), are represented in the selection of vases, glasses, and dishes. The stock changes weekly, but everything—a tin tray with an image of a cat dressed in 16th-century garb, or perhaps a cake stand that looks like a cherry-topped cupcake—is a guaranteed standout in any home.
Via Santa Radegonda 3, 39/02- 88-521. This appeared in the October 2013 issue.
