Roberto Cavalli is usually known for his fashion designs, but he debuted a part of his Roberto Cavalli Home Collection during Milan Design Week. The collection's latest piece includes a luxurious armchair called 'Wings.'
The chair is a futuristic-looking recliner that is shaped like a triangle. It matches perfectly with the rest of the 'Wings and Roses' collection, which pays homage to traditional Italian designs. Cavalli embodied those designs by the use of heat fusion, vibrant orange and yellow coloring and prints and all-over printed glass.
According to Cavalli, it is “an armchair that breaks the rules with complete nonchalance.” Of course, the fashion designer didn't stray from his usually luxurious fabrics while he "broke the rules;" he used leather inlays and floral motifs to make the furniture.
