Milan Design Week 2013 featured the newest in interior design by Versace and Armani. These luxury designers’ home décor contributions to the $750 billion global luxury goods market have earned them even bigger revenues as affluent international buyers snap up leather-covered wardrobes and custom drink coasters.
Georgio Armani reported to Reuters, “We have always looked at distant parts of the world, but this is inevitable now with the economic problems in Italy.” Armani has used materials like rare Japanese tomo wood for his newest trunk-shaped wardrobe, and he also utilized banana tree stripes for gaming tables.
Donatella Versace collaborated with Nikolai e Simon Haas for a “Donatella Chair” crafted from black leather and honeycomb brass, and Missoni presented versatile outdoor furniture.
