From socks to sports cars, Italian quality consistently stands out as the best in many fields of manufacturing. This easily holds true in the world of home décor as well, so it's no surprise when someone looks for ways to add a little Sicilian flair to his or her home. If you live in Los Angeles though, finding imported décor can be a bit of a challenge since the city doesn't really have any predominantly Italian neighborhoods, making the hunt that much more difficult.
And that's why we are here to help. We scoured L.A. to find shops that specialize in imported Italian décor, and we're covering a whole lot more than furniture so you can decorate nearly every aspect of your home.
