They had one of their servants bring me one of these while I waited for my fiancee' to shop last time. It was actually really nice. Same with the rest of their furniture, really nice and insanely expensive. I think they keep it in the store to help you rationalize the handbags.

their stuff looks like Room & Board but with nicer leather.

It's nicely made about on par in workmanship with the most famous Danish manufactures. I personally favor the work of the Danish manufacturers. The public seems to offer fashion companies an excess of goodwill when they step out of their market that other manufacturers have had to earn inside their niche.

Bottega Veneta has a nice home line.

They also did a pop up shop during Salone a couple years back.

I think it is awesome. It is intelligent and clever, is super interesting in its design and detail and when folded up could not possibly be more sensitive to its environment.

The Bottega Venetta stuff, on the other hand, is freaking horrifying.

It's also a somewhat underused form of log construction. 

 

This is the interior. For extra awesome.

I like some of it.

The only fashion brand I can think of that has moved successfully into interior design is Missoni and to some degree Armani (I like their new hotel in Dubai).

Most seem to do better with curiosities than furniture.

The fact that they make everything look like their iconic purses, even to the printing on the bowls means that they should all be destroyed.
