Ever feel like you wish you could turn your closet into your home furnishings? Well if your closet is jam-packed with Jason Wu and Rick Owens, that wish could become a reality. While the favorite designers have been busy working away at their apparel and accessory collections every season, they’ve found time to translate their brands into totally covetable pieces for the home.
In April 2012, Jason Wu brought his chic, streamlined style to a collection of furniture and home accessories for Canvas Home, a New York-based home goods brand. This Jason Wu For Canvas Home Dining Chair ($1,290) features a vintage metal finish and rich linen upholstery in a deep midnight shade. The Jason Wu for Canvas collection stays true to Wu’s aesthetic but is perfectly translated for the home. You can pick it up for yourself at the Canvas online store.
Diane von Furstenberg
In 2011, Diane von Furstenberg launched a home collection that features her bright signature prints. These wild, multicolored DVF Decal Dessert Plates ($70 for four) would add a bold, modern touch to any tabletop — perfect for entertaining.
Marc Jacobs took his famed creative mind to Waterford, a collaboration that resulted in some adorable crystal wear we’d love to use at our next dinner party. The pieces are still available at Crystal Classics.
Giorgio Armani’s Armani/Casa home collection originally debuted in 2000, and there are now more than 60 store locations worldwide. The high-quality pieces have the same sleek, luxurious feel of the designer’s clothing collections. We love the ’30s-inspired style of this Armani/Casa Baloon Chair — an ideal blend of retro influence and contemporary design.
Donna Karan Home Collections
In the spring of 2001, her eponymous brand launched Donna Karan Home and DKNY – two distinctive bedding and bath collections for the home. More recently, PureDKNY was launched: an eco-friendly home collection made from 100% organic cotton. The brand has also collaborated with Lenox – a U.S. market leader in quality table top, giftware and collectibles – to produce a collection of home décor and tableware’s.
Fendi was one of the first Italian luxury fashion brands to enter the homewares space, launching the Fendi Casa Home Collection back in 1989. Fendi Casa is now widespread and appreciated in 60 countries worldwide, from western Europe to the countries of the former Soviet Union, from Canada to the United States, all the way to South-America, India, China, Singapore, Russia and the Middle East, not to mention Hong Kong and some African countries.
