T o celebrate the opening of Natuzzi Italia's new Houston showroom, more than 150 guests joined chief brand officer PJ Natuzzi and a host committee with designers Anita Smith, Shannon Mann, Courtnay Tartt Elias, Brandon Fontenot, Kelie Mayfield, and Alexandra Killion.

The Natuzzi Green Rabbit armchair, artistically designed to resemble a rabbit's ears, drew a steady stream of Instagram posts.
