Tailored lines, lustworthy prints and the couture-like textiles, the style apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree when it comes to the off-runway interiors collections from our sartorial favourites.
The furniture of fashion houses should be recognisable
The words modern simplicity come to mind when considering the wares of CK Home, the homeware branch of the famed fashion house. The collection is a celebration of minimalist design and includes cube-like ottomans, tailored upholstery and simple sled based pieces. Even the brand’s home accessories are entirely devoid of embellishment, preferring instead to focus on clean lines and shapes. Subtly patterned bedding and nature-inspired floor coverings are the only truly decorative aspect of the brand’s collection, drawing on organic colour ways and motifs including stylised florals, animal skins and natural textures.
With a renowned heritage inspired by the Roman saddlery craft just shy of a hundred years, Fendi Casa produces the most exquisite leather goods. Made in Italy, the brand’s upholstered pieces often incorporate hand-sewn features using the finest of materials. Having expanded the empire to include everything from luxury homes to jaw-dropping yacht interiors, the rest of the collection is comprised of mixed textures, marbled worktops and accent stitching, rarely digressing from its time-proven chic neutral colour palette.
Hugo Boss Home
Boss Black is known for its array of sharp tailoring softened with splashes of colour and it seems the iconic Hugo Boss Home collection is just as hot. This season’s array of ikat florals in bold aubergines and cobalts, sheeny pixelated prints and crisp hotel-like linens has strong roots in the house’s fashion collection. Subtly embroidered with the Boss logo, this is home décor for the über-stylish urbanite.
The Parisian brand’s over 175 years of experience in producing, amongst other things, iconic and oftentimes jovial prints paved the way for a stellar homeware line. Comprising of oriental art-inspired tableware, solid rosewood paperweights and deliciously smooth cashmere throws, the collection is decked out in stand-out patterns like illustrated cartoons and the brand’s notable equestrian patterns.
Even devoid of the iconic Medusa image, which so regularly rears its snake-topped head, theVersace home collection succeeds in realising owner Donatella’s vision that, “the furniture of fashion houses should be recognisable” to the utmost degree. Never a brand to go unnoticed, the Versace interior is one of gilded fine porcelain tableware, fringed silk cushions in bold Baroque prints and rich Renaissance themes. This is a collection for hosts who really want to go all out.
Maintaining the Parisian fashion house’s penchant for eccentric fashion but with a home-friendly finish, the Kenzo Maison collection is big on colour and revels in the effect of print. The products are inspired by the brand’s captivating runway hits with a particular interest in exotic motifs. Think stripes, chevrons and florals in tropical shades, perfect for injecting a splash of interest into your interior.
One of the most recognisable fashion houses to hail from the perennially stylish Boot country, Missoni has become a favourite for channeling a relaxed 1970s vibe focusing on exquisite knitwear, fabulous colour combos and, of course, that iconic chevron print. The brand – which celebrates its diamond anniversary this year – has divided its time in recent years between its catwalk collection and its popular interior range which translates the bold fashion looks into game-changing home accents. Loved by designers and celebrities alike, the collection specialises in ombre-like patterns, vibrant tropical prints and metallic designs.
