We all know designers make clothes, but some have been putting out housewares for years.
Forget minimalism, forget boho chic – Gucci’s line of home decor is unapologetically opulent. Launched less than a year ago under the stewardship of creative director Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s collection of homewares includes scented candles (in adorable printed porcelain vessels), extravagant throw pillows and swanky dinner sets. The homewares are designed to be small, moveable items so they can be rearranged and revitalized as the fancy strikes you.

Like Gucci, Versace has a penchant for palatial designs that feel right at home in a French palace. Lavish and fit for royalty, just like their clothing lines, their dinnerware and home accents feature flashy patterns and baroque details. You’ll impress any guest when you pull out Versace fine china for a dinner party. The different styles are well-suited for their stately names – Medusa, Prestige, Le Grande and Les Etoiles de la Mer (“Star of the Sea”).

The fashion line known for its exotic prints (and the creation of the very first pair of sand-blasted jeans) has an equally alluring line of home accents. Following the brand’s predilection for printed textiles, their bedding and duvet covers reflect a taste for extravagance. Dinnerware shows a flair for intricate design. Whether or you’re ready to sleep on a bed of roses or a luxurious velvet and silk cloud, Roberto Cavalli has got you covered.

Christian Lacroix is inspired by folklore and cultural references, and the brand’s home accents are inspired by the same fantasy world we all wish to submerge ourselves in. From Frida Kahlo to European lords and ladies, these gorgeous throw pillows are sure to accent a room and get the imagination flowing.
