A Fashionable Home

The pinstripes on a Ralph Lauren suit make their way into the
upholstery of a French-inspired Ralph Lauren armchair

So many fashion houses have dabbled in the furniture and home accessories market. Looking at their home collections and their spring/summer pret-a-porter, it's easy to see that they apply the same philosophy they use to create their clothing in their home lines. This begs the questions: Would you really want to sit on a couch that looks like your dress? Wouldn't having the same color palette for your wardrobe and your interiors be boring?

Black and criss-crossing detail as well as a gauzy texture
are both present in the Casa Fendi sofa and Fendi dress

Peach and silver are used to created a tufted occasional chair for Versace Home
and a flowy floor-length evening gown for Versace

Geometric shapes - rectangular and grid-like in the Armani Casa screen and squares
in the Giorgio Armani dress - unify the designs for the home and the fashion lines

Simple, stark and minimal at Calvin Klein

Understated luxury and the lasting appeal of neutrals are present in both the dress
and the desk from Bottega Veneta
