The name Riva is synonymous with the utmost levels of sophistication and luxury, and discerning yacht owners have been looking for a way to capture the allure of the water-bound brand in the home. As an answer, the company introduced the Riva Home Couture collection at the end of 2008. The line consists of fine leather bags, cashmere pillows and blankets, silk and cotton sheets, fur rugs, wood and stainless steel boxes, and small pieces of furniture.
Created by Milanese designer Odilia Prisco, each piece in the line is made-to-order in Italy. The items were inspired by the clean, sophisticated look of the Riva yachts, and are meant as a perfect accompaniment onboard or off. The epitome of chic, the leather beach bag is lined with linen printed with archival Riva images from the golden era of the Italian Riviera, when Brigitte Bardot owned Rivas. Only one home couture collection will be introduced each year.
