The Broke Girl's Guide to Luxe Italian Design
Italian modernism is back in a big way, but the refined look of this groovy resurgence comes with a hefty price tag. If you’re floored by the sticker shock that comes with custom luxury pieces sourced by our favorite interior designers, like Dimore Studio and Studio Ilse, check out our broke girl’s (and guy’s, too!) guide to nailing the look.
Milan-based design firm Dimore Studio loves a grand, spidery light piece with exposed bulbs.
The low modular sofa by Living Divani, which retails for thousands, is perfect for kicking off your Prada heels and sipping negronis.
Midcentury furniture designer Marco Zanuso’s Lady Chair, which retails for $6800, was the most popular comeback among the high-end design scene in the past few years.
A solid brass storage piece adds a modern moment and balances soft, feminine lines.
Odd color combinations in geometric patterns on the floor are also favored by Dimore Studio.
Studio Ilse keeps this room feeling super refined, thanks to the ease and elegance of the ultra-thin-frame mirror—a big recurring theme in Italian modernist design.
