Inspired by the iconic prints and patterns of its fashion collections, the new Roberto Cavalli Home collection is pure jungle luxe; the hedonistic maximalism of crushed velvet and zebra stripes, Murano glass and animal prints, delicate porcelain and soft furnishings, ornate trims and gold braids. Opulent colours and sensual materials juxtapose, layer and overlap to create an aesthetic of drama and tension.

The colour palette is sophisticated, brooding and delicious – shark grey and black onyx contrasted by sand, dark flamingo and burgundy orchid. There are palm prints, jaguar patterns and giraffe embroideries. Innovative new metallic finishes like black chrome and dark bronze play off the precious materials of printed python, silk, onyx and leather to create a lush, unconventional and exclusive mix that perfectly embodies the Cavalli identity.

Stars of the collection include new interpretations of the iconic Wings armchair designed in five new finishes including mink, kiddassia fur, arapaima leather and Charlize coating printed with palm trees.

Launched during Salone del Mobile in 2012, the Roberto Cavalli Home brand has been developed in collaboration with a team of specialist makers and manufacturers: JC Passion for furniture, Emiliana Parati for wallpaper, Ricchetti Group for tiles, Caleffi for home textiles and Compagnia del Cristallo for tableware. In 2016, the company announced a collaboration with Venetian firm La Murrina for the production of lamps and interior design accessories crafted from Murano glass.

Drawing on pieces from the current Roberto Cavalli Home collection, the Wallpaper* interiors team has created a fabulously festive shoot that celebrates the brand’s chic extravagance and sumptuous luxury. A multi-textural, convention-flouting clash of jet set baroque, discotheque deco, animalier and damask. Glamour begins at home.
