London-based luxury fashion portal Matches (if you’re unfamiliar, it’s akin to Net-a-Porter) has branched into the homewares space with the launch of a homewares studio that features a tight edit of creations from fashion luminaries such as Gucci, Peter Pilotto, Preen and Missoni. While certainly not cheap, the line-up of cushions, throws, candles and tabletop items make for great statement pieces.
Peter Pilotto painted ceramic plate: The fashion designer’s foray into homewares has been much anticipated and this painted ceramic plate is made in the UK and recalls the colourful designs that made him famous. $146.
Missoni Home Togo cotton and linen-blend cushion: The Italian fashion house has been decorating interiors since 1983 and its iconic zig zag stripe is an enduring style. $418.
Gucci Herbarium crockery collection: Made in Italy from porcelain, this range is emblazoned with Gucci’s Herbarium floral print and trimmed with black lacquer. The collection includes a teapot, dessert plates, sugar bowl, cream jug, coffee pot, dinner plates, a serving platter and more. Prices start from $240.
La DoubleJ Editions Geometric-print linen napkin set: Made in Italy with an archive-sourced print, these bold napkins would look fabulous against all white. $160 (set of six).
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi floral-print silk-satin cushion: Much like the label’s fashion creations, this cushion unites two contrasting floral prints to dramatic effect. The ruffle border trim is a lovely, feminine touch. $312.
Raawii Strom ceramic jug: For Scandi lovers, this gorgeous jug boasts a bold geometric shape, gorgeous colour and is the work of Copenhagen-based brand Raawii. There’s a bowl and vase in the range too. $100.
Gucci hand-embroidered velvet cushion: The eye-watering price aside, this cushion is one of the key items from Gucci Décor’s debut collection and combines a hand-embroidered cat motif surrounded by yellow flowers on pink velvet with a braided trim and tassels. The back features a contrasting floral jacquard. $1560.
La DoubleJ Editions mosaic-print porcelain plates: These dessert plates are decorated with a 1920s flooring mosaic print found in the archives of Italian silk manufacturer Mantero. Made in Italy, the gold trim really sets off the design. $142 (set of two).
