A mix of smart essentials for maximizing work-at-home style.

Giorgetti Roberto Lazzeroni’s new Genius armchair for Giorgetti (available in two sizes, starting at $4,014 depending on materials) embodies the Pisa, Italy–based architect’s interest in designs that recall the past in a modern way. Its silhouette presents an elegantly curvaceous, pared-down interpretation of a classic wing chair on wheels. 212.889.3261, giorgettiusa.com

Bottega Veneta Previously available with a bent-iron frame in a bronze finish, the Floating Desk ($18,600 to $40,400) now can also be commissioned with a gunmetal or brushed-steel frame and with oak drawers stained in any of four hues, from dark to ash. Or the Italian luxury-goods house’s signature intrecciato weave, in either calfskin leather or lacquered parchment with a bronze finish, can cover the drawers. Each desk is made to order. 646.292.5817, bottegaveneta.com

Trussardi Casa A division of Italy’s Luxury Living Group, Trussardi Casa asked the designer Carlo Colombo to create shelving that is as handsome as it is functional. Among his answers is the Totem bookcase (from $16,010). It has a wenge-dyed oak frame with burnished steel details and an interior that can be rendered in any color. 800.634.4043, luxurylivinggroup.com

Flos Gino Sarfatti’s famous Mod. 548 table lamp—designed for Arteluce in 1951—became available anew in the United States last year. The reissue, this contemporized version from Flos, retains the original’s qualities of reflected and diffused light, but substitutes an optical dimming sensor for the old push-button control and replaces the initial incandescent bulb with energy-saving LED technology. 844.356.7872, usa.flos.com

Asprey Established in 1781, the British jeweler still measures up, as evidenced by its distinguished Presidents Ruler ($2,150). The 13-inch sterling-silver straightedge bears the engraved names of all the U.S. presidents. For those seeking to measure while reciting the English monarchs, there is the brand’s Britannia Ruler. 212.688.1811, asprey.com
