Color-blocked resin, woven PVC, extra-durable paper: One of the coolest decor collections of the moment isn’t even from a homeware company. Italian fashion house Marni just launched a new line, full of inventive materials and vibrant patterns. It’s not the first time the brand has dabbled in design, but it is noteworthy. The aptly named Marni Market only rolls out about once a year. This one is all about celebrating the unexpected.
Among the 100-plus products, you’ll find revamps of iconic bags in PVC so tightly interlaced that it almost looks like rattan. There are two-tone resin trays ideal for serving yourself breakfast in bed (we’re all about indulging in little moments of glamour these days). There’s a cat-shaped magazine rack crafted out of iron. Don’t miss the metal-and-paperboard baskets either: The unusual fabric makes for quite the statement.
Everything is handmade by Colombian artisans to spotlight unconventional materials, a refreshing twist on the quintessential summer collection. No breezy neutral linens or boho cane furniture here. In Marni’s world, the season is made for bold colors and cheery prints that make you feel as if you’re vacationing in an eccentric Italian villa. Even if your current travel plans only include a walk to the backyard, you’ll find something to bring that holiday feeling home. We dare you to look at these maximalist pieces and not smile.
