Italian fashion house Fendi has selected British furniture designer Mark Humphrey to create two furniture ranges for its interiors arm, Fendi Casa.
The collections, called Wing and Classic, are launching at the Verona Furniture Fair in October and will form the core feature of the Fendi stand, according to a Mark Humphrey spokeswoman.
The Wing collection will feature six pieces, including a day bed, an ottoman and a dining chair, says the spokesman. The Classic collection features five items.
Humphrey claims to have been snapped up by Fendi on the strength of his own-brand furniture collections shown in London.
‘The Wing and Classic collections combine classical English elegance with fluid, modern curves, and will give Fendi Casa’s usual range a new twist,’ he says.
Meanwhile, Fendi is refurbishing its store in London’s Chelsea Harbour, with all interior design work undertaken in-house in Italy. It is also looking to open a standalone Casa store in London, says the Mark Humphrey spokeswoman.
