First they rocked the runways, then they occupied a permanent place in our wardrobes and shoe closet, and now they're ready to take over our houses. The Italian fashion house Gucci wants to turn your ordinary home into a fashion mansion. Launched last year, there are new additions to the Gucci home line.
We're talking vividly decorated folding metal tables, ornamental folding screens, ceramics vases and cushions with cross-stitched designs on a velvet or blended wool background. Some of the pieces have a vintage air to them. Case in point, the capitonné porter’s chairs. These high-backed and canopy-covered chairs were used in England, and later in 16th–century France - with its medieval touch, it might just make for your perfect Iron Throne.
If you're not a morning person, drinking coffee in Gucci's eclectic mugs will brighten your day. The decor feature prints of cats, a ‘stage-curtain’ image, a jewel pattern, and also designs with the words ‘Maison de ‘l’Amour’ and ‘Urtica Ferox’. Rings a bell? You probably saw it on the runways.
And finally, for those looking for a complete interior re-do, Gucci's unconventional wallpapers in vinyl, paper, or silk will do the trick.
This collection will be available in select Gucci stores post-June 2018.
