Internationally renowned, MissoniHome – a partnership with leading Italian manufacturer, T&J Vestor – evokes Rosita Missoni’s philosophy to living:
“The home is alive. It’s constantly evolving and never finished… Furnishing my way means creating a habitat that's ordered yet informal, versatile and welcoming.”
The colourful line of indoor and outdoor furnishings, textiles, and décor is characterized by unusual fabrics, whimsical prints, and simple shapes, designed for sophisticated, artful settings.
Born niece to Rosita in Milan, Jelmini has breathed the family business for 31 years, working in fashion and home departments since she was a student. With a comprehensive, 360 degree perspective, she leads research and development, and the creative process, finding inspiration everywhere around her:
“I absolutely adore what I do but I’m also a lover of life; I love to pick mushrooms, I love to grow flowers, I love to paint, I love music, I love friends, I love sports, I love my family and I love working… Inspiration can be captured at any and every moment. We take out forms, shapes and colours and start by experimenting with how they could be applied in a new way…”
Mark your calendars: Jelmini shares more on her design philosophy at Canada’s top meeting place for design professionals, IDS15 Trade Day, on Friday, January 23, 2015.
Produced and distributed by leading textile manufacturer T&J Vestor, the MissoniHome line was added to the company’s product range in 1983. Renowned since 1921 for the quality of its homewear, T&J Vestor is run in partnership by the Torrani family and Alberto and Giampiero Jelmini, Rosita Missoni’s brothers. Rosita remains the designer for MissoniHome textiles, along with Creative Director of T&J Vestor, Wanda Jelmini. The MissoniHome collection has enjoyed growing success and expansion in recent years, developing a strong international reputation. Home furnishings now account for a considerable part of the brand’s production, as well as a rich assortment of textiles and accessories. Missoni’s outstanding creativity and timeless style and T&J Vestor’s leading technology and market knowledge combine to create the winning elements of worldwide acclaim based on imagination and innovation.
