Every year, we wait with bated breath for the biggest design showcase of the year: Salone Del Mobile.Milano, otherwise known as Milan Furniture Fair. This fair leaves design devotees thoroughly dazzled with installations, exhibitions, and pop-up galore. The 58th edition this year was a resounding success, as it boasted a host of innovative designs and revolutionary collaborations from luxury design labels, many of them high-end fashion houses. While some have been in wowing the design industry for decades, others have only started making a splash in recent years — the houses of Gucci and Dior, for instance, just entered the scene with a range of home decorations.
This transition should come as no surprise. A home furnishing arm offers an all-inclusive effect for those seeking the ultimate lifestyle experience from a coveted label. Moreover, the worlds of interiors and fashion have always been intertwined, with textiles and design at the forefront and both regarded as extensions of one’s personal style. We take a look at the high fashion labels racing to be part of the homeware scene.
