Gucci Decor finally launches in Singapore with standout pieces for luxury living

Under the watch of creative director Alessandro Michele, decorative maximalism reigns.

When Gucci announced last year that it won’t be stocking its much-coveted homeware line Gucci Decor here, fans of the Italian luxury house had to put on hold their dreams for an eclectic home. This month, the brand has revealed that their boutiques in Singapore will be stocking the collection of chairs, porcelain vases, mugs, tables, candles, foldable tables and trays and more.

New pieces have also been added to the debut line. Among them are the medieval era-inspired porter’s chairs commonly used in olden times by servants and gatekeepers positioned at the entrances of great estates. The modern version comes in either leather or velvet, featuring drawers at the bottom and the style’s distinctive canopy, and takes Tuscan artisans a total of 64 hours to complete an entire chair. Meanwhile, jacquards from Gucci’s previous ready-to-wear collections end up as the upholstery for the drawers – a great move for those who champion sustainable design at home. Other new designs added to the collection are foldable tray tables, vases, mugs and candle holders. The latter are larger than those featured in the debut collection.

  • The expanded range of cushions sport cross-stitched motifs like a tiger’s head, teddy bear, and illustrations of creative director Alessandro Michele’s two Boston terriers, Bosco and Orso.
A noteworthy feature of this collection is the high craftsmanship factor. For instance, the three-dimensional snakes on the lids of the candle holders are all hand-painted, while the porcelain vases are made by the 283-year-old Florentine company Richard Ginori, using intricate processes of ceramic firing that require manual adeptness and a high level of skill. We wouldn’t expect anything less.
