Gone are the days when luxury fashion brands, such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Hermes were pouring all their creativity into designing handbags, clothes, and shoes. With the home furnishing market experiencing a revenue growth that is expected to exceed 1 trillion dollars, high-end fashion brands found the perfect moment to emerge from the dressing and take on the rest of the house.
Each fashion house found a way to stay true to their aesthetic, while creating pieces of furniture or décor meant to satisfy the needs of their most avid customers. Some of the brands, such as Hermès and Armani have long joined the homeware industry, but others have only recently launched their first home collection. If you are looking for ways to bring your passion for fashion into your home, check out the collections from the following brands.

The company launched its first home collection in the early ‘90s and has since stayed in the homeware business.
The most recent collection was launched this year, at Milan Design Week, in April and features neon pieces, combine with bold prints and luxurious materials. Versace kept its infamous motifs, such as the Medusa and graphic checkerboards, but altered them with modern colors and prints.
