Say “Valli & Valli” to any lover of high-design hardware and watch for the swoon. Known mostly for its minimalist masterpieces penned by star architects, the 70-year-old Italian company did a little digging through its 1940s archives for its newest knobs. The Ornate Collection turns solid brass, scrollwork, and flowers into a handful of pure la dolce vita. From $146. www.vallievalli.com
