Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.
One thing that’s clear about fashion designers is that a majority of them harbor a strong and unstoppable desire to make furniture and homeware. Raf Simons has a long-standing collaboration with Danish textiles company Kvadrat, Ann Demeulemeester recently pivoted to ceramic kitchenweare, and Rick Owens makes obsidian, marble thrones along with more light-hearted life-sized models in his own image – complete with bulging biceps and long mane of pitch-black hair – as tables and chairs.
The point here is that an interest in designer clothes can naturally extend to an interest in elevated domestic furnishings too.
Explore some of our favorite designer homeware from the likes of Acne Studios, Balenciaga, Gucci, and Jil Sander in our curation below.
