Luxury and extravagance arrive to Madison Avenue in sofa form with the East Coast's first Fendi Casa. Set for an official opening on the 23rd, the Design District store hosted its soft opening in late September. According to WWD, expect signature Fendi leathers and prints for every aspect of home decor.
And if you're not about the "off the shelf" life, you can customize with a selection of fabrics and leathers as high as your budget can soar. This launch marks the start of the luxury mad dash to Madison, as Faith Hope Consolo of Douglas Elliman said, "Everybody on Fifth wants to be on Madison." —Cambrey Thomas
