As ready-to-wear designers expand their interior lines, fashioning a home has never been easier. Here, our top seven sources for runway-inspired home interior decoration.
Armani is a sensual minimalist, drawing inspiration not only from the catwalk but also from the Zen cool of Eastern design. The collection is popular with the downtown crowd, who are eager to furnish their homes in contemporary style with sleek, masculine lines. Tables with parchment veneers, gold lacquer dining room tables, and even mother-of-pearl caviar sets underscore Armani’s genius with fabrics and finishes.
Donna Karan reinvented the way career women dressed in the ’80s and brought a glamorous fashion edge to business attire. For her home collection, it’s all about easy luxury—sumptuous beds draped in silky sleek linens, charmeuse, cashmere, and cuddly knits. There’s fashion detailing as well with duvets, quilts, and pillows styled with special embroideries, ruched stitching, and even sequins.
3. Boss Home
Hugo Boss is the go-to uniform for many on Wall Street, so it’s no surprise that Boss Home is a favorite for many FiDi condos and lofts. Look for plush bed and bath items—kimono-style bathrobes, silk pillows, and alpaca throws in chic neutrals. Boss’s signature plush cotton Classiques towels are as indispensable as the brand’s cotton slim-fit dress shirts.
The Missonis, known for their lively and colorful patterned knits, launched an eponymous home décor line three decades ago. The collections have grown substantially since that time and now the label’s chevron motif appears on a wide variety of home items, including bedding, lighting, and even all-weather furniture and pillows perfect for outdoor spaces.
One of America’s most important fashion tastemakers, Ralph Lauren created a wildly successful home collection with various lines referencing everything from Hollywood to the Wild West. Perhaps best known are Lauren’s Anglo-inspired pieces – available at his flawless Neoclassical-style flagship on the Upper East Side. Lauren pulls from diverse influences, including the Parisian Left Bank’s artistic roots and an Edwardian Bishopsgate estate.

6. Versace Home
Fashion designer Donatella Versace’s affinity for the dramatic and the ornate shines through in her home collection via intricately hand-painted china and other tabletop items. In the Fifth Avenue boutique, you’ll find the majestic golden Legend of the Dragon pattern, as well as luscious leather sofas and armchairs. Gilded accents abound, among them a painstakingly carved golden mirror, which along with the collection’s lavish multicolor crystal chandeliers infuse distinctive old-world style with new-world glam.
Young celebs like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé love Kate Spade for her witty designs, which range from chic retro-modern day dresses to Pop-art-inspired iPad folios. The brand’s collaboration with Lenox, the tableware company that has made china for six US presidents, resulted in a collection of hip and modern place settings, with dishes splashed with dachshund designs and Crayola-colored cityscape doodles. Mugs and paperweights quipping eat cake for breakfast make whimsical gifts.
