Last week, Milan was lit with design-related events as part of Salone Del Mobile and Milan Design Week, which ran from June 6 to 12. While the annual design week sheds a spotlight on leading lighting design, furniture design and more, it’s interesting how fashion designers take a different approach when designing interiors. And they didn’t fail when pulling up at design week. Here are some highlights.
The German fashion designer debuted his foray into interiors with his new home collection, with a booth at Salone Del Mobile. He created a new Home Collection photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth, and created in collaboration with furniture company Eichholtz, and wallpaper firm, Zambaiti Parati. “I designed a truly immersive and experiential collection. Home design and architecture have changed post pandemic, and this made me re-think the way people should feel at home” said Plein.
The French fashion brand also creates designer rugs, dreamy, floral-inspired interiors, and furniture. Lacroix presented latest collection, called Fête vos jeux, at Salone Del Mobile 2022 with porcelain brand Vista Alegre.
Toiletpaper is more than just a magazine, it’s a fashion and interior design company too by artist Maurizio Cattelan and the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari. They not only throw great parties, but create everything from cat sweaters to cheeky slogans on bathroom mirrors. They also have a showroom in a house that has garnered a lot of attention on Instagram, which they call Casa Toiletpaper (last week, they announced Via Balzaretti, the street it calls home, as Toiletpaper Street, with a marble plaque). Inside the house (by appointment only) there was a showcase of their latest design offerings, available on their website.
The French fashion brand showcased their interior design collection at La Pelota with wallpaper that takes visual cues from its textile patterns, which are abstract and minimal, while.
The Canadian-born, Italian-based luxury brand launched their first edgy wallpaper collection co-created with LondonArt, a wallpaper firm who has worked with Maurizio Cattelan’s Toiletpaper brand. It combines tagging with floral patterns, mixing high and low.

The French fashion house launched a three-floor, colorful exhibition in Milan with a focus on weaving, hanging chairs and wall pieces that call to mind flower power. As the fashion company’s interior design arm celebrated their 10th anniversary with a new lifestyle collection at Garage Traversi, all of which had a retro, modular vibe, much of which calls to mind the architecture of Pierre Cardin.
