The furnishings are inspired by the 1930s, with furniture hand-made to Walter Albini’s designs, covered with mirrors and mirror tiles, as are the walls.
White linen couches with cushions covered in fabrics from his collections.
At the centre of the living room there is another couch upholstered in plastic python-print material.
In the bedroom as well, there are shelves made of mirrors, while the upholstery and bedspread are in plastic python-print material.

Linea Italiana magazine feature, set in the living room of Walter Albini’s home in Milan. Walls are covered in mirror tiles while the white couches have cushions in houndstooth or Prince of Wales check lamé. The same fabrics as the clothes in his Autumn/Winter 1972-1973 collection.
