Fashion Fridays: Mad for Missoni

My love for all things Italian continues today with a focus on the fashionable Missoni Home collection. This family run company has been bringing us fabulous knitwear with a multitude of colors since 1953 and their home collection roots itself in that same Missoni tradition. I would use their fabrics, throws or pillows in every project if I could. After generations of producing their iconic prints, this recognizable brand is as stylish and hip as ever. 

The Famous Milanese fashion house took their extraordinary textiles into the home in1983. An explosion of colour, pattern and luxurious texture, the Missoni Home collection now incorporates design for every part of our lives from rugs and upholstery fabrics to bedding and towels, from tableware to soft furnishings and furniture. The colorful fabrics and home accessories that this fashion house offers are to die for!

The images below are selections from the 2010 Outdoor collection


Missoni embodies Italian luxury that I just cannot get enough of. I have my favorite Missoni caftan and top but the home collection sends me over the edge!  On my trip to Italy this summer, I couldn't help but go into Missoni in every city we visited. I was so giddy to finally visit the Missoni outlet.  How about these oh so chic tablewares! Dreaming of having a full set one day. Available at Bloomingdales

For those who watch Gossip Girl, you will find their fabric on Lilly's Eames chair in the living room. Love!

If you are visiting Milan anytime soon, hit up the 6th floor of the La Rinascente on Piazza Duomo for the Missoni Home display.  If you live in LA you can find Missoni Home products at the Missoni store in Beverly Hills or at Planet Blue stores. NYC has a store on Madison Avenue as well. For the online shoppers, the best selection of all Missoni Home products is available at Unica Home or All Modern

There are so many favorites to choose from that I will surely be blogging about this fashion house again :). Enjoy!
