From fashion to sofas? Designers are cashing in on interiors trends


From high-end to high street, the worlds of fashion and interior design have never been so closely aligned.

Recent years have seen countless collaborations between prominent fashion designers and established homeware brands, who have realized that consumers are hungry for a complete lifestyle experience.
With homeware and furniture companies providing the infrastructure and expertise, partnerships such as Diesel and Moroso, or Raf Simons and Kvadrat have proven to be mutually beneficial.

Expanding beyond clothes not only strengthens a business by increasing brand recognition, but also allows labels to grab a slice of the highly profitable luxury home and furniture pie, which, according to a report by Allied Market Research, is forecast to reach $27 billion by 2020.

1. Moschino

Moschino presented a modern take on Salvador Dali’s “Mae West Lips Sofa,” updating the surrealist classic for their first foray into furniture, launched earlier this year.


2. Fendi

Resembling earring studs and an elaborate duel ring, these three tables from Fendi’s collaboration with architect and designer Cristina Celestino.


3. Gucci

The newly launched Gucci home decor line includes everything from candles and chairs to wallpaper and decorative folding screens.


4. Louis Vuitton

Initially conceived in 1972 by French furniture and interiors designer Pierre Paulin for American furniture designer Herman Miller, the piece was never realised. However, Louis Vuitton created a series of prototypes from the original designs as part of an exhibiton during Design Miami.
