The Milan Furniture Fair —which ran April 12-17, 2016 — turns the Italian city into the capital of interior decoration and design when it rolls into town

This major industry event attracts big names from all walks of design, including fashion, which is increasingly branching out into the world of furniture design.

La Perla

From high-end lingerie to furniture, La Perla has teamed up with designer Walter Terruso to create a sleekly sophisticated vanity table by the name of "Mia." The table's geometric design is set against a large round mirror, in a design made from glass, brass and pleated silk.

Bottega Veneta

The Italian fashion house has its own Home Collection. This brings the brand's signature fabric -- leather -- to a selection of new furniture creations, including the "Rudi" line, designed in partnership with Poltrona Frau. This features a club-style armchair, a footstool, a three-seat sofa and a chaise longue. The range also includes round tables with bronze frames -- available with an engraved patterned top -- as well as a suede- or leather-covered chest of drawers and a bronze lamp with a woven black leather shade.

Marni

This fashion house was back in Milan with a new home collection for 2016. The range once again reflects the label's colorful style, with chairs, chaises longues, rocking chairs, plus small tables, lamps and vases made from metal, wood and hand-woven PVC cord.

Versace

Another Italian fashion house showing off furniture creations at the Milan Furniture Fair was Versace. This year brought the "Via Gesù Palazzo Empire," a blue sofa inspired by the "Palazzo Empire" bag and adorned with two Medusa heads. This brand symbol was also seen on its "Mesedia" chair, an aluminum outdoor seat available in five colors.

Armani Casa

Giorgio Armani's interiors brand presented a collection in line with its usual classy, sophisticated style. The "Luna" swivel table, for example, is equipped with a swivel system in satin-finished brass, a walnut frame surrounding the tabletop, and a pearl- and gold-colored fabric base finished with glossy Himalayan lacquer.
