RHODE launches home decor line, proving that fashion and interior design go hand in hand
Just in time for summer, fashion label RHODE, known and loved for its vintage prints and playful silhouettes, has officially entered the homeware space. Yes, the inauguration of RHODE interior decoration line is the perfect extension of everything fans love about the brand: vibrant color palettes, whimsical patterns and details, and a rare timelessness.
“We’re so excited to see our home collection now available,” said co-founder Phoebe Vickers. “In 2014, when we launched RHODE, the goal was to always make it a lifestyle brand and not just clothing. To see the extension to homeware finally come to life with this first collection is truly amazing.
For their first limited-edition home collection, founders and longtime friends Vickers and Purna Khatau opted for a mix-and-match vibe, featuring signature designs dubbed Garden of Dreams, Sicilia and Squiggle. “Similar to how we approach our ready-to-wear collection, we wanted the house to feel special – like unique treasures found on your travels near and far,” Khatau explains in an email to TZR. “Each piece works on its own, but there is a special magic when you mix them together. The Sicilia print as the name suggests was inspired by our travels in Sicily and the Garden of Dreams was inspired by ancient Mughal fabrics.
Indeed, the quirky mix (which includes face-drawn serving plates, rich red floral tablecloths, and scribble-marked graphic doilies) can certainly be acquired piecemeal to suit a range of aesthetics and of pallets. And despite the variety of designs and color combinations for each item, there is an inexplicable cohesion that comes together well as a collection, for those with a taste for maximalism. It’s the Rhode way.
Like the brand’s fashion line, each piece in the home collection was created by artisans in Italy and India, delivering a worldly aesthetic that reads like elevated memories. Featuring everything from papier-mâché coasters and hand-painted serving platters to tablecloths and cushions, the range has outdoor summer entertaining covered…literally.
While it’s hard to pick a favorite from the unique collection, Vickers notes that Squiggle plates are at the top of her list. “Each piece is unique and hand painted by artisans in Italy, which makes them extra special,” she says. “I love pink, and mixing colors with this particular pattern brings such a fun feeling to the table.”
As for her top pick, Khatau says she loves the Garden of Dreams pieces. “The print looks like the quintessential RHODE and the painted faces on the plates add a whimsical touch to any table,” she says. “I’ll never go to the beach without our new duvets either.”
