Acne launches furniture range
Tuesday 26 January 2010
The Swedish fashion brand has introduced its first furniture designs during haute couture week in Paris.
Having previously added jewelry, shoes, and leather goods to its range of clothes, in addition to publishing the popular Acne Paper, the move represents a further move towards diversifying the brand.
Diane von Furstenberg announced her own furniture range, due out in 2011, just last week, joining other couture labels trying their luck in interior design: Vivienne Westwood recently launched a range of wallpaper with British label Cole & Son, while brands such as Diesel and Bottega Veneta have full-blown home collections.
Acne's new line of velvet chairs and sofas in pastel colors - with their aesthetic being inspired by Swedish design guru Carl Malmsten and executed by Acne head designer Jonny Johansson - can be ordered online. Prices range from €4,000 to €15,000.
