From the Runway to Your Home

In September, the world’s top fashion designers unveiled their looks for Spring 2013 to a packed house of reporters, buyers and celebrity friends in New York’s Lincoln Center. Called Fashion Week, it’s the world’s first look at what the stylishly chic will be wearing when the leaves on the trees start to bud the following year.

The shapes, colors and patterns seen on the runway often make their way to home decor. Whether the inspiration is subtle or obvious, combining fashion with furnishings creates gorgeous pieces that dress up your home.

Take a look at some of the fashion-forward furniture available at Art Van Furniture, and the runway looks they resemble.


Calvin Klein

Known for minimalist, urban design, Calvin Klein showed this gorgeous layered black moiré over a white shift. With a wave pattern, it delicately frames what’s beneath. Our Metal Denmark Bed has a similar curved, fine-lined silhouette. In black finish, it will allow your linens to take center stage.

Proenza Schouler

The wearable luxury of the Proenza Schouler label has an edgy flair, which is evident in their red and black eel skin and leather jacket. While not made of those same hip materials, our Shuffle Sofa creates similar drama with its striking red and black combination. The fun “Relax” pillow adds a pop of rock-inspired playfulness to the piece.

Marc Jacobs

Known for classic and current, Marc Jacobs used stunning horizontal lines to create this beautiful and bold dress. Its linear look can be found in our Howick Collection Master Bedroom Suite. Available in high gloss black or high gloss white, the sleek panel design is simple yet sophisticated.

More Marc Jacobs

Mixing graphic patterns was another theme Marc Jacobs used in his Spring line, especially in black and white. The graphic look of his gowns can be felt in our Lucky Accent Chair, with its striking black and white scheme.

Donna Karan is known for creating garments that have heart and soul, and she showcased this beautiful yet casual color-blocked leather dress and white trim during Fashion Week. Our Prize Sofa offers a similar feel, with flared lines and contrasting welt. The styled accent pillows add a lighter touch of caramel for a look that says effortless glamour.
