If BUtterfield 8’s Elizabeth Taylor needed a place to rest her slip-clad self, we’d recommend the lavishly tufted velvet Claudette sofa, scheduled to hit the floor at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams new emporium in Highland village Shopping Center in the former Restoration Hardware space (which moved just across Westheimer to larger digs), opening end of August. The designing duo’s fall collection, inspired by fashion, film and photography from the ’60s and ’70s,  includes Upholstered All Over, a mini collection that includes the fully upholstered Victoria mirror, a top-to-bottom fabric-finished Victor console, and the aforementioned Claudette, a new take on the Chesterfield. Each piece is available in 350 fabrics or more than 50 leathers. At Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, 4519 McKinney Ave., 214.753.8700;; a second location arrives at The Shops at Willow Bend August 1.
