The new Armani/Casa Collection is simple, yet elegant and timeless. The collection employees unusual eco-friendly materials to protect the environment, such as striped banana tree finishes (gathered after the crops are cut) and tamo, the Japanese ash wood whose grain seems to reproduce the movements of sand in Zen gardens.

The Armani designers use these striking materials for furniture that features pure lines and simple shapes.

The collection has a wide array of items, including lighting, gifts, table accessories, furniture and decorations.

We loved the use of extremely simple elements that tell tales of distant worlds, rich in tradition – like Nepalese carpets and kilims, woven with an ancient artisan skill that generates sophisticated abstract patterns in beautiful, natural shades.

Here’s a look at some of the items in the Armani/Casa Collection.
