prints inspired by gucci’s ready-to-wear collections are used throughout the collection including on new metal tables and trays as well as chairs upholstered in the GG pattern jacquard, interspersed with bees and stars.for its tableware, gucci employs the skill of richard ginori, a florentine company founded in 1735. images show snakes for handles on vases produced by ginori, and tableware featuring herbarium print – a whimsical toile de jouy design of cherry branches, leaves and flowers, inspired by a vintage fabric.

the illustrator behind the campaign for gucci décor’s 2018 is alex merry, who worked on the brand’s previous collection. comprising wild animals and folkloric inspirations, her artwork perfectly captures gucci’s bizarre world. scented candles formed of wax infused with aromatic extracts and essential oils are presented inside a porcelain holder decorated with merry’s prints.
