With her beautiful, vibrant print collections sought after season upon season, it was simply a matter of time before Diane Von Furstenberg would be snapped up to turn her hand to interior design; and for Claridges no less.
Starting out as a simple redecoration project, the 20 suite makeover has seen DVF let loose: creating prints, designing fabrics, furniture and altering the ‘oh so’ traditional Claridges layout. Producing rooms that are quirky yet tasteful and full of colour without being garish, DVF has effectively mixed every trend going with ease and style.
Eclectically combining Ikat, Floral, Aztec and Geometric, DVF has encapsulated Claridges’ clientele perfectly – vintage with a splash of modern avant garde. But for those of us who can’t even afford Claridges discount £299 room only offer, (never mind DVF’s piano suites) help is at hand. With her upholstery fabrics ready for en masse production and soon to be available to interior decorators worldwide, we’ll all be able to have a sliver of DVF’s Claridges – even if it’s only a cushion, a very small one.
