Inspired by Austrian potter Lucie Rie, creative director Jonathan Anderson designed three sets of 50 different leather bowls. They've been produced by Spanish artisan José Luis Bazán, and each has been handcrafted for a line of one-of-a-kind creations.
Some of our favourite brands are steadily making their way into our homes by way of bespoke furniture. Salone Del Mobile, held in Milan last week saw some eclectic pieces. Here are our top picks.
Louis Vuitton added to its Objet Nomades collection with a new 16-piece line of portable travel furniture (foldable hammocks, woven swing chairs, etc) in collaboration with nine international designers like Patricia Urquiola, Gwenaël Nicolas and Maarten Baas. This bright-as-sunshine foldable table by Raw Edges won our hearts.

Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola created interesting shapes from recycled wine barrel wood to create 'Baco', a tunnel shaped stool with a three-petal seat. Each piece is unique – designed by an architect or designer, and then hand-made by the boys of San Patrignano Design Lab and they'll now be a part of the brand's permanent collection.
Taking over the Armani Teatrospace the brand displayed a retrospective in honour of the label's 40th anniversary. And it covered the company's top design projects over the last decade. They also expanded the Armani Casa furniture line that borrows from various cultures. Our favourites? These Japanese-inspired dining room pieces.
Inspired by the iconic Versace key design motif, the brand introduced a new chair, with the seat and arms rendered in laminated silver leather. Created by artistic director Donatella Versace, the La Coupe des Dieux chair's clean lines stood out.
