No one is associated with bold style and vivid patterns, quite so much as Diane Von Furstenberg. An icon in the fashion industry and requiring little introduction, it seemed only natural for her to transition to interior design. Design lovers rejoiced when the fashion designer entered the home realm, creating a collection of fabrics for Kravet and the most divine array of floor rugs for The Rug Company.
Known for her trademark wrap-dress in stand-out patterns & prints, the New York fashion designer has provided the same amount of drama and confidence in her exclusive collection for Kravet. Drawing inspiration from nature, Von Furstenberg mixes scale and colour, to translate well-known prints into legendary DVF statements. “Patterns are a natural for me,” she says. “I capture them from nature through photography, then reinterpret them. It’s all about mixing—scales, patterns, and colours,” she adds.
DVF’s collection for The Rug Company was launched in 2003 and continues to grow as she reinvents her runway favourites into sexy and sophisticated heirlooms for the home. It came as no surprise that the catalyst for her rug collection came from Isak Dinesen’s memoir ‘Out of Africa’. Bold zebra, leopard and python prints of glorious proportions fill the collection and sit alongside an oversized Damask, known as ‘Bishops Cape’.
Diane Von Furstenberg has been empowering women to embrace their femininity for generations, and it’s no question that she’ll continue to be equally as iconic in the interiors space. From runway to interiors, we can’t wait to see what she graces with her bold design-eye next.
