Famous Milanese fashion house and ‘masters of colour' Missoni, took their extraordinary textiles into the home in 1983.
An explosion of colour, pattern and luxurious texture, the Missoni Home collection now embraces every part of our lives from bedding and towels to rugs and upholstery fabrics, soft furnishings, furniture and accessories.
On the occasion of its 60th anniversary, Missoni continues to be a vital, energetic force in design. The qualities that have seen the company grow and prosper for six decades in the transient, oftentimes fickle, arena of fashion are the exact same values they are championing with their eponymous homewares brand: innovation, a singular vision that informs every detail no matter how small, and a sense of wonder at the endless exquisite possibilities of textiles and the design process.
It is this considered, intelligent approach to textiles, to colour and to pattern that pervades every Missoni Home collection. Approaching home wares in the same exacting, bespoke way it does fashion, by continuously adding, subtracting, tweaking, reinventing and developing tactile new weaves and new colour combinations. Missoni Home develops pieces that are as dramatic in isolation as they are layered and grouped together.
“The truly miraculous thing about Missoni Home is there is an entire new collection each year; this company does not rest on its laurels, does not stagnate …ever. Each collection builds on and enhances the one before while also exploring new directions and attitudes. Part of this magic is that they are a multi-disciplinary textile house; they actually choose production techniques that best serve the design and pattern. If they want a watercolour effect, they will do a digital print. If they want wonderful textural elements they will make a technically wizardous jacquard design. There is never that single dimension of multiple prints and that is all. Texture and light play are all part of the Missoni experience. They produce textiles that are a visceral as well as a visual feast.” — Fiona at Spence & Lyda
