Italian furniture and interior designer Paola Navone is on a tear. In May, she debuted a collaboration with twee lifestyle purveyor Anthropologie. On September 9th, Navone hits the retailing dance floor with a new partner, Crate and Barrel.
The designer was asked "to envision an affordable home line with the prompt: 'What would you do if you were having people over for dinner?' In response, Navone has designed all the components of her ideal dining room, from splotchy blue-and-white glazed plates to high-backed Windsor chairs to red steel hanging lights to a dining table with a tiled top and legs of reclaimed teak. "
To kick off the highly anticipated collection, C&B's newest Teapot of the Month features a Navone design and will be available September 1st.
