The essence of Gianfranco Ferré Home designs is one of stylish and classy refinement.

The design house's newest collection of dishes for 2016 is dedicated to Milan, the stylish city of its founder and is a collection as refined as the city itself.

Made with the highest quality porcelain, the plates come in two different tones either sepia with a gold border or gray with a platinum border, both versions graced with images of the city of Milan. The style incorporated in the dishes of this newest collection makes them a seamless addition to other Ferré collections. While the set can be bought as a whole, it's also possible to buy a few key pieces and add them to previous plates from other sets making for a playful table that is still highly elegant and graceful.

The brand's 2016 collection of home accessories goes beyond just the table and extends to other areas of the home. These beautiful designs can be found for bed and bath accessories, lighting, pillows and other decorative pieces as well.

This year's collection for Gianfranco Ferré Home was first presented at Maison&Object in Paris and recently at HOMI in Milan. Notable are the sophisticated blending of classical lines and modern shapes which are characterized by a subdued color palate of ivories and taupe, creating an atmosphere of tone-on-tone which is complemented by other refined design accessories included in the collection.
