Diane von Furstenberg

The woman behind the wrap dress has been wrapping her head around the home of late, producing outdoor tableware, bedding and decorative accessories such as bowls and trays as vibrant and elegant as her clothes. The Diane von Furstenberg Home collection, which is currently available through www.dvf.com and launches across Canada at the Bay in April, is inspired by a wide range of influences, from batik to Spanish tilework. Her Decal Chargers - including, from top to bottom above, Sun Stripe, Floral Batik and Barcelona Mosaic - are about $25 each.

Hermès

When the Milan Furniture Fair gets rolling next month, Hermès will be there for the first time, signalling how serious the luxury leather-goods company is about tackling the home-furnishings market. La Maison, its new home-decor line, was kicked off in November with updated reissues of classic Jean-Michel Frank furniture, including the inverted-U nesting tables and sheepskin-covered club chair above. New additions this spring include contemporary textiles, wallpaper and rugs. Visit www.hermes.com for Canadian retail locations; J.M. Frank par Hermès is available by special order.

Christian Lacroix

Lacroix fans who wept when the innovative couturier declared bankruptcy in 2009 have reason to rejoice: He's back - or at least his name is - with a line of fabrics and home accessories for Britain's Designers Guild. Under the creative direction of Sacha Walckhoff, who worked alongside Lacroix for more than 17 years, the collection "embodies the true essence of the Christian Lacroix," meaning "complex, colourful" rugs, cushions and textiles evoking sunsets, rural French landscapes and bullfights. Visit www.designersguild.com for Canadian retailers in Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria.
