We're All Going GaGa for Gucci!

Global audiences have been going gaga for Gucci over the past few weeks, thanks to the huge amount of publicity around the hit film ‘House of Gucci’, starring Lady Gaga, Adam Driver and Al Pacino. So much so, that apparently there has been a 131% rise in searches for ‘Vintage Gucci’ since the film was released on the 26th November!

Gucci homeware is purposefully designed to bring the eclectic, romantic aesthetic of your home to life in a way that enables one to create a surprising, joyous combination of hue, pattern and design where there are no rules. So, in honor of House of Gucci, I asked my Interior expert friends at Essential Living to compile the very best finds from vintage Gucci dating back to the 80s, to modern decor, and to also source some affordable alternatives to help you to bring a touch of high-end glamour to your home at a fraction of the price.


Herbarium printed wallpaper


Plenty of off-white, chrome and a little velvet. This is what Gaga’s lavish life articulates throughout House of Gucci. The 'Souvenir from Rome' collection of furniture and decorative pieces have been designed by Creative Director of Gucci Alessandro Michele and are the perfect modern way to add a burst of tradition to your interiors, with motifs and patterns borrowed straight from their ready-to-wear collection.

Gucci's Herbarium motif depicts a whimsical Toile de Jouy design of cherry branches, leaves and flowers, inspired by a vintage fabric perfect for a "Gucci-fied" home. However, this wallpaper will set you back £200 per metre length.

Affordable Alternative: Lilianna Jessamine Floral Trail wallpaper


This affordable wallpaper alternative gives you the essence of the Gucci classic floral, but without the hefty designer price tag. This Wayfair wallpaper costs £19.99 per roll.


Star Eye XL demitasse cup and saucer set




If Gucci is your cup of tea then this set is perfect for your home. Crafted from ivory Richard Ginori porcelain, the demitasse cup comes as a set of two. The tea cup and saucer are printed with special details inspired by previous Gucci collections, resembling intricate architectural details, and with House codes sprinkled throughout.

"Maison de l'amour" appears on the saucer, surrounding the Gucci bee, while at the interior of the cup is a special hidden detail: the Star Eye. The eye logo will give visitors who finish their drink a fun surprise. Find the set on FarFetch for £400.



Affordable Alternative: Alice in Wonderland Cup & Saucer



This adorable ‘Alice in Wonderland’ teapot would be a playful but still sophisticated touch to any tea party, and costs just a tenth of the Gucci version.


Moiré armchair with embroidered butterfly

The armchair in pink moiré fabric has a high-backed design that's reflective of a seashell. The fabric is specially woven to create a textured appearance that resembles waves, set on black metal legs. The main cushion is further enriched with a butterfly motif that is embroidered and then hand-applied, a process that takes approximately 5 hours to complete.

You’ll find this armchair on the Gucci website for an eye-watering £5,280.



Affordable Alternative: Vivian Velvet Cocktail Chair


This rose cocktail chair with a similar aesthetic will set you back only £149, much easier on the bank balance!


1980s Style of Gucci Gold Faux Snakeskin Chairs

The beauty of using gold and brass in your home décor comes from the warmth the metallic shades and tones bring to any space. These disco-themed dining chairs are the epitome of luxury art deco design with a delicate balance between the brass snakeskin and gold buckle backs.

In a neutral, modern home, a sprinkle of gold or brass accessories will lift and energise the space, adding an elegant reflective quality that will contrast gracefully with wood or textured objects. Find these on Chairish for £9,800 for the set of 8.

If you’re still looking for the warmth and luxuriousness of the brassy dining chairs, this affordable modern alternative costs just £226.50.



GG bee and star jacquard stool

Gucci Décor brings an accent of the brand's contemporary romanticism into the home while allowing for a flexible and personal approach to decoration. Crafted from wood, this stool has a lacquered black finish, enhanced by GG pattern jacquard upholstery interspersed with bees and stars—codes that have become synonymous with the House. Braided and knotted fringes, along with brass nail-heads detail the edges of the cushion.

For a real statement, you’ll find the stool on the Gucci website for £2,400.



Affordable Alternative: Contemporary black rose padded stool



Matching up with the black and white wallpaper, this Gucci alternative from manomano.co.uk costs just £64.99.
