One of the biggest design fairs, Milan Design Week took place from June 7-12. As always, the collections showcased left us awestruck, with multiple collections from home decor and fashion to impressive installations and designed spaces. One of the most extensive sections this year was the home decor collection exhibited by a multitude of brands. These covered everything including lighting, furniture, wallpaper, cushions, rugs, vases, decor pieces and more.
With over 20+ home decor collections, it was hard to pick the ones that stand out. Nonetheless we have our favourites. Take a look at some of the most stylish and eccentric home decor pieces from this year’s Milan Design Week.
Milanese fashion brand Colville is best recognised for its eccentric fashion pieces that are a burst of colours, prints and patterns. While the idea of such an elaborate mix may sound jarring, rest assured it is anything but that. For this year’s Milan Design Week, the brand forayed into home decor, stretching their eccentricity into design with a range of colour blocked poufs, colourful cushions, shaggy rugs and coloured coffee tables. While we certainly enjoy every bit of their collection, it is their selection of shaggy rugs that are a real eye grabber. These shaggy rugs made in Turkey borrow from the brand’s fashion eccentrics, blending mix and mactch colours in a series of linear patterns, which are a great pop of colour for a netural toned space.
You cannot talk about eccentric home decor without looking at D&G Casa. Designer fashion label Dolce & Gabbana like many other brands launched its own selection of home decor last yet. Since then D&G Casa has unveiled a vast number of products all of which follow the maximalist aesthetic. Their collections displayed at Milan Design Week followed four specific themes, Carretto, Majolica, Leopardo and Zebra. Within each theme was a collection of couches, cusions, carpets, poufs, tablecloths, serveware and more. Our favourite among these had to be the Majolica collection. Resplendant of Southern Italy, the collection revisits the Blu Mediterraneo through shades of pure white and intense light blues.
Colour was a huge part of Milan Design Week 2022. It is no longer about the neutrals and the pastels, but rather the brightest colours of bliss. This was not limited to wallpapers and furniture, but home decor as well. La DoubleJ, another fashion brand that is well known for its colourful collections, showcased its selection of colourful tableware, beacause who want plain white ceramics anymore? The brand has since come to known as one of the few maximalist tableware brands with an appealing selection. Look out for their colourful glass vases, printed cermaics, intricate patternered plates and more.
Louis Vuitton’s “Objets Nomades” is a Milan Design Week must-see. For this year’s presentation, the brand decided to reconnect with some of its old collaborators like the Campana Brothers and Raw Edges, to create updated versions of their previous designs. These include the Bulbo chair by the Campano Brothers,which is inspired by nature and food, the colourful cocoon chairs also by the Campano Brothers, the Raw Edges cosmetic table redesigned with an enameled base, Atelier Oi’s Belt Chair spawned lounge chair, stool, and side stool, among others.

An iteration of the “Flora Seating Series”, Nilaufer Gallery presented a new collection at the Milan Design Week which had a psychadelic approach. Creating a dreamy state of mind, the set up of the collection was enhanced by elements like the Medusa lamp, the Flora Modular Sofas, or the flora modular bench. The collection is designed with a customised fabric, reminiscent of psychedelic illustrations.
