Yesterday the famous Italian designer debuted his latest collection "Roberto Cavalli Home" in Milan at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013 – one of the world's top furniture and design tradeshows. The exhibition was named "Gold, Excess and Love" and judging from the pictures these words sum up the collection perfectly. Featuring opulent furniture, the most spectacular wallpapers, plush rugs and many other interior elements, this range is certainly a feast for the eyes.

Last year when he launched the debut collection he said "When I create a dress I want it to emphasise the femininity of a woman at all times; and so as with designing for the home, I try to identify the character of the people I'm designing for, thinking how I can diffuse this with the colours, the warmth and joy of living that first of all one gives oneself."

"My Home collection was born from a personal desire to share the optimism of my fashion with those who love me-derived from my creativity, my philosophy, and my style which is also evident in the decoration of the home.

"There is no difference between the thinking behind designing a clothing line and a homeware line. My lifestyle is always hugely driven by passion."

I think he has represented his brand perfectly with this latest Home collection, focussing on the details such as materials selection and using only the most luxurious of fabrics. It is opulent, over-the- top and unashamedly decadent.

Many top designers have branched into designs for the home with this year's exhibition also featuring pieces from Versace, Missoni, Blumarine and Kenzo. They have all created beautiful designs but I think that the "Gold, Excess and Love" collection is definitely the most outstanding.
Even if this is not to your usual taste, you can't help but desire these luxurious pieces. Although I think they may look out of place in my house, I may have to create one room and dedicate it to be my Cavalli boudoir!
