Paola Navone: Mastering the Vintage-Modern Mix
A member of the Italian design elite, Paola Navone works for clients ranging from old-school Richard Ginori 1735 to modern-minded Knoll.
Inside Paola Navone's Paris loft, simple, white floor-to-ceiling curtains can separate the dining area from the kitchen when she's entertaining.
Restaurant Style: Bar
Paola Navone recently transformed a former tobacco shop in Milan into Pane e Acqua, a restaurant that showcases new and vintage pieces from the adjacent furniture shop. Everything is for sale, so the design changes constantly. The front of the steel-topped bar is covered with weathered 1920s metal tiles salvaged from New York City hotels.
