If perusing Net-a-Porter for the likes of stylish table linens or chic glassware is not common practice for you, humor us. While the retailer is best known for its covetable collections of designer fashion, it boasts an equally impressive home section that’s rife with hidden gems—1,500 of them, to be exact. It’s a keenly on-trend mix of tableware and decor that’s just as elevated and cool as you’d expect from the well-respected retailer of luxury clothing, shoes, and accessories. Among the glut of Italian brands mingling with Brits and Scandinavians—Cabana, Raawii, and Ginori, to name a Domino-favorite few—there are exclusive fashion headliners, too: La DoubleJ, Emilia Wickstead (along with her mother, Angela Wickstead), Brunello Cucinelli, Chloé, Loewe…the list goes on.
While the tabletop and candle offerings run particularly deep, there’s another area of the Net-a-Porter navigation bar our editors frequent: the sale section. Boasting nearly 200 discounted items, the clearance stock is not to be slept on if you want to score big on expensive designs. Poke around, below, to check out all of the hidden home gems (deals included) that we’re angling to add to cart.
Domino-Favorite Home Brands at Net-a-Porter
Aerin Lauder’s namesake line spans most home categories, but Net-a-Porter edits it down to party-ready pretties. The brand’s Sophia glassware—which includes coupes, carafes, and more—is on our best-of list for being dainty but not too delicate. Handblown in Italy, the crystal pieces have character in the form of a gold rim and soft ridges.
The handcrafted home goods at Cabana are inspired by the magazine of the same name, which was founded by Martina Mondadori, Christoph Radl, and Gianluca Reina in 2014. A veritable celebration of color, pattern, and texture, Cabana’s dinnerware, glassware, and table linens range from scalloped and curvy Splatterware to Carolina Herrera collaborations, as well as all kinds of linen napkins and placemats in between.
While sets by this luxury British homewares brand are certainly an investment, the stylish tableware—from hand-painted Spanish ceramics to block-printed linen tablecloths and delicately embroidered napkins—is of timeless heirloom quality.
The incense holders from scent shop Cinnamon Projects are as handsome as the fragrances themselves, many of which are crafted to reflect certain times of day. We’re particularly into the idea of 7AM, which carries notes of black tea, clay, driftwood, and marigold. Each of the 25 sticks in a tube burns for nearly 25 minutes, and the perfume should linger for hours afterward.
Australian studio Dinosaur Designs is a devotee of resin. The company started as a jewelry practice and added homewares in the 1990s, and the colorful, organic shapes that Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy design are vibrant and versatile. The servers, for instance, could be used as a pair or separately; they’d also make for a great host or wedding gift.
While Italian porcelain stalwart Ginori 1735 needs little introduction, we’ll just say this: It’s one of our all-time favorites (even for adding single plates to a collection). The options at Net-a-Porter span the brand’s classics (Oriente Italiano, Catene) and collaborations (Luke Edward Hall, Off-White), plus many candles and incense holders.
When Florentine beachwear and lingerie designer Loretta Caponi applied her florals, stripes, and frill to linens and dishes, tables were never the same. The designs continue to feel fresh and relevant, like red and white stripes, maximalist florals, and scalloped edges.
We can’t seem to get Sicily off our mind lately: Couturier Luisa Beccaria’s glassware line was inspired by the restoration of her family’s ancestral Sicilian home and designed in collaboration with her daughter. The colors are dazzling, and tumblers, teacups, plates, and champagne flutes wear grooved edges or softly curved lips.
Mrs. Alice, the tabletop brand from Alice Naylor-Leyland, is a cottagecore lover’s dream. Lettuceware, rattan, pastel: The gang’s all here. We’re particularly drawn to the Hobnail glassware that is exclusive to Net-a-Porter. Available in varying styles—tumbler, goblet, jug—in a beguiling olive green, the bubble-laden pieces have character and class, and they’re dishwasher safe.
We’ve been fans of Copenhagen-based design brand Raawii for a minute. Its vibrantly glazed handcrafted ceramics are cheerful to look at, and the shapes have that minimalist feel the Danes are so well known for. The Strøm bowl has enduring appeal—it’s an ideal wedding gift that’ll whisper “I’m the cool cousin.” Raawii’s collaboration with Omar Sosa, cofounder and creative director of Apartamento magazine, produced a range of stackable pieces in colors inspired by nature.
Soho Home lets you bring decor that fills the spaces of Soho House social clubs across the globe into your home. Net-a-Porter stocks an edit of the fashionable interiors collection, including quite affordable glassware and dinnerware sets, as well as barware and serveware most would be happy to have out on display at all times.
Marie Antoinette isn’t the face of Trudon, the French brand founded in 1643 that made candles for Versailles and the imperial court. But by all accounts, she could be the mascot. Example A: This light pink decorative candle is hand-sculpted as an exact replica of the portrait in the Louvre. Or take the Rose Poivrée candle, which was created in collaboration with designer Giambattista Valli and inspired by the queen’s love of the flower.
Designer-Exclusive Home Brands at Net-a-Porter
The mother-daughter duo behind the label Bernadette crafts not only statement-making clothing but darling tabletop accessories and vases adorned with hand-drawn motifs. You’ll find lemon branches, hortensia, and other blooms scattered across eggcups, bowls, water jugs, and more.
Fashion designer Emilia Wickstead, perhaps best known for being a favorite of the Princess of Wales, also designs a small collection of tabletop that includes linens in varying floral patterns—here, it’s posey bunches. Net-a-Porter also stocks exclusive table linen designs by Emilia’s mother, Angela Wickstead, which numbers several sets of embroidered placemats and napkins in a harvest-hued palette.
The Milanese brand La DoubleJ has been a Domino editor go-to for years; it’s a favorite of Kate Berry, our chief creative officer. Founded by former journalist JJ Martin, the label meshes a California state of mind with Italian craftsmanship and inspiration—always resulting in colors, patterns, and creativity. The Roman Holiday–themed chargers won our Good Design Award for best plates, and the pattern is included in the eclectic group of six dessert plates seen here.
The soft goods and table linens from fashion label Sea have that coveted heirloom look to them—we’re talking crochet trimming, whipstitch edges, ruffles, and patchwork. The colors, too, offer vintage-looking flair. The Ida quilt, for example, is complete with a series of dusty floral-print patches, and the Manuela pillow is embroidered with the same pattern as the brand’s Manuela dress.
There’s a trove of slashed-price scores to be had inside Net-a-Porter’s sale section—we’re talking up to 60% off luxury homewares—which can make that just-out-of-budget item or set feel a bit more in the time-to-snag realm.
