Dolce & Gabbana Furniture

Last fall, Dolce & Gabbana presented their first line for furniture and needless to say, it was an immediate success. The Italian fashion house that is well known for its vivid colors and vibrant prints, presented over 300 pieces, from tables to sofas, with colorful Sicilian cart motifs and animalier lovebeds.

You can now discover the exquisite Carretto, Blu Mediterraneo, Leo and Zebra collections at the new Dolce & Gabbana Casa boutique dedicated to furniture in via Durini 23, Milan.

I am totally in love with this new line. As I am dedicating every room in our new house to a fashion designer, I have just realized that I will also need a Dolce & Gabbana room.

LoL, Sandra
