H&M Home’s hotly-anticipated collaboration with fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg launches next week on the 16th April and the interiors world is buzzing with excitement.
Since teasing us with news of the launch back in November - and giving us a sneak preview of a fabulous red glass statement vase - the collection has been kept firmly under wraps. Until now! We've finally been given a sneak preview of what we can expect from the collection.
H&M Home x Diane von Furstenberg
Not one to shy away from bold patterns and daring colour combos, the new collection promises DVF’s iconic fashion prints and stand-out style on a whole range of home buys.
The collection will feature zebra and leopard print, a kissable lip pattern and Diane's abstract lettering, all bold prints the designer is famed for. The collections will be made up of 31-pieces including wool blankets, cushions covers, boxes, trays, candles, espresso cups, small plates, vases, pots, posters and even a robe.
The key pieces we'll be keeping an eye out for are the double-sided blankets - perfect for adding a flair of style to a bed or sofa and coloured glass pink and orange rounded vases. True Von Furstenberg fans should also be looking to scoop up the scented candles house in printed glass. The large candles are scented with the designer's favourite scent - amber. While the smaller ones also include cedarwood, sandalwood, amber and pine.
If you're hoping to make a splash in a zoom meeting you might want to watch out for the luxurious robe that has also been included in the collection. The robe features the famed 'Diane' print that will keep your cosy and stylish when working from home.
‘I’m thrilled to be collaborating with H&M Home, especially since I have such a passion for interiors. The home is both a relaxing and empowering place where you can really ‘own’ a look or feel,’ says Von Furstenberg.
‘With this collaboration, I want people to take charge of their home decor. The only rule I have is that your home should reflect who you are. The main point is to create a space that you’re incredibly comfortable in and is a true expression of your personality,’ she adds.
'The prints in the H&M HOME collaboration are very iconic. The ‘Diane’ print I created 20 years ago when I started the company, while the lips print comes from the painting Andy Warhol did of me,' the famed designer explains.
'Personally, I love animal prints – zebra is very DVF – and also vibrant orange and pinks, but monochrome black and white is very chic, too. The whole collection is fabulous, and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.'
So what other interiors ‘must-haves’ can we expect from H&M Home this Spring?
H&M Spring/Summer 2021
Sculptural shapes in ceramics and artwork are a key trend in interiors right now and H&M Home has got it spot on with these stunning vases - and a bargain too, with prices starting from just £6.99 for the smallest.
Au naturale is the way to go when it comes to the bedroom, with cotton and linen mix bedding in natural tones and simple stripes that create a calm, relaxing vibe.
Tactile tableware is big too, with lots of crafted, Artisan-style pieces that scream ‘high-end’ but are pleasingly low-budget.
And don’t miss the furniture. The selection gets better each season, with our favourite for Spring, this chic storage coffee table with glass top, perfect for displaying all those cherished keepsakes.
The new Spring and Summer collection is in-stores at H&M today.
