thanks for starting this thread and moving over the posts gius!...
...

the rugs really show the designer behind them...
i guess rugs are often easier for some designers since it's still textiles...
bedding is probably somewhat like that as well...i assume...

i still remember how disappointed i was when i saw the ann demeulemeester table...
so.....nothing.......

It's hard with rugs to make them 'great'. Its almost as thou they need to be taken to a new extreme - of which I have no idea what it would be .... I loved some Titannia's posting but for example the Paul Smith looks so much like what is already out there. Perhaps I just need to see it in person - or would it be a repeat of the Ann Dem table situation.

Ralph Lauren Home is certainly a flagrant attempt at empire building - sheets, rugs, towels, wall paint... the name becomes a brand, then explodes into every area of manufacture. It's just too much imo.

this line, like much of his clothing is very mainstream at this point..
while the stuff may not always be the most fashion-forward, business-wise it is pretty genius and like you said, another way to expand his empire..

the paint in my room is by ralph lauren..
it is sort of a soft metallic gold color that actually looks really great, and it was the only color like it out there
at least i couldn't find paint by any other company that came close to what i wanted in the same way..

many of these other designers only go after specific markets while there's sort of something for everyone when it comes to ralph lauren..
some may put that down, but he's laughing all the way to the bank..

Are designs by Armani and Ralph Lauren also priced like their clothing?

those are lovely runner...
i found this on the mina perhonen website...

Fabrics by minš perhonen are released from a Danish textile maker, Kvadrat.


"tambourine"、"Ikat flower"
The Egg x "Ikat flower"
The Swan x "tambourine"、curtain "Big flower"
"tambourine"

The embroidered "tambourine" is one of the standard pattern of minš perhonen. This pattern is embroidered onto two kinds of fabrics, "Hallingdal" and "Lazio," which will be released with 15 colour variations in total.
"Ikat flower"

The fabric is made using a weaving technique, ikat ("kasuri" in Japanese) which is often used to make minš perhonen fabirics, and a flower pattern is printed onto it. The colour variation is mint colour background with yellow flower pattern and light blue with red flower pattern.
"Big flower"

When the fabric is hanged as a curtain, you will see one big flower print – this fabric is named "Big flower." It is printed on polyester known as Travira CS, which has a big share in interior market not just in Denmark but also in Europe and America. Only navy flower on white background is available for this fabric.
Following items are available at ACTUS shops in Japan.
