When you hear the name Fendi, you know you’re getting luxury. The Fendi Casa Home Collection was created in 1989 as a natural evolution and a new important chapter of a great Italian business epic characterized by an unlimited creativity. This collection was launched in collaboration with Club House Italia, a company established in the 1970’s by Alberto Vignatelli who specializes in the production of upholstered furniture and related raw materials. Their aim is to “dress up” rooms in a way which is very similar to how Fendi designs its fur and precious leather coats, clothes and accessories.
