Relaxnews confirms that fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg is indeed planning on launching her own home collection next year.

Partnering up with home furnishings company Springs, the fashion brand will release bedding as well as table wear and bath accessories in January 2011.

The announcement marks the first freestanding home range for the designer and will be carried by international department stores as well as her website, dvf.com.

Her new collection comes as part of a trend of fashion designers branching out into interiors (see Diesel for example, or Vivienne Westwood's newly launched wallpaper) and vice versa (industrial designer Marc Newson created jeans for G-Star).
