Paul Smith and De Padova Team Up to Create a New Furnishing Collection
Paul Smith is perhaps best known for perfecting the stripe, whether in men’s socks, women’s swimsuits, or wool rugs. But the knighted 76-year-old British fashion designer has recently paired with De Padova on something else: Everyday Life, a furniture collection that’s a departure from his signature bold lines. As the name implies, the palette for the seating and table line is more subtle, as witnessed in the armchair’s upholstery of brick-red hemp. Other materials are natural, too: stone tops for tables, oak, ash, and steel frames for chairs and sofas, their padding made of kapok-tree fiber and recycled feathers. Their contrast stitching and trouserlike leather pocket display Smith’s everlasting sartorial know-how.
