Meet CaSa, Simon Miller’s First-Ever Home Collection Suitable for Style Lovers Everywhere
Ever wish your shoes could match your home decor? What about your napkins to your market bag? Though we can’t totally say we have, the new Simon Miller home collection is the fashion-meets-home collab we never knew we needed but now certainly can’t live without. With everything from terry cloth towels, leather place mats, and dog leashes to a tightly curated selection of vintage glassware and furniture as well as artwork, CaSa by Simon Miller encompasses all decorative categories of the home.
Including art deco teapots, desert-tone placemats, and flower print pillows accompanied by a set of matching slides (yes, you read that correctly), CaSa by Simon Miller brings a shopping experience unlike any other. Spearheaded by the fashion label’s creative director, Chelsea Hansford, the collection is stocked with goodies made perfectly for the Los Angeles cool girl and the design aficionado alike.
As for the inspiration behind the much-anticipated collection? Chelsea’s home, which we got a full tour of just this week. “I wanted this collection to give off the vibe of the house,” the designer tells us of her multi-use Studio City space. Featuring midcentury Hollywood ranch architecture and bold mod interiors, her home is the unofficial headquarters for all things Simon Miller. From game nights to full-throttle team meetings, Chelsea’s Los Angeles place has been deemed the set of all sets when it comes to photo shoots and ads.
After observing the reaction her followers had to her home on her personal Instagram page—a useful advertisement tool for, well, anyone—Chelsea saw an opportunity to provide her customers with something they most likely deemed impossible. “The intent was to make the lifestyle of this home shoppable,” she continues. “I wanted it to feel like more than a brand doing small goods.”
Made with materials like fiberglass, leather, and cotton, the collection is a not-so-subtle nod to the quirky yet chic aesthetic of the label. And sustainability definitely was not left out of the conversation either: “A lot of [the collection] is made from excess production,” the creative director notes of the new line, a play that many companies should take note of.
For those who know Chelsea, it’s obvious that her vintage-filled home is fully equipped with nods to her past, and Simon Miller’s home collection is no different. Sculptures and paintings found around Chelsea’s home, from her collaborations with artists such as Ashely Cahill and her former New York neighbor Leonard Urso, are now up for grabs. And when it came to curating the swoon-worthy vintage goods—cue a 1980s hot pink Ikea lamp—Chelsea tapped her longtime friend Lisa Jones of A Good Chair in London.
Sold exclusively on Simon Miller, the 48-piece collection, ranging from $30 to a whopping $18,000 (you can thank Leonard Urso’s jaw-dropping Pendulum Sculpture for that), offers up gems both quaint and extravagant enough for any space. With notable artwork and thoughtfully crafted tabletop accessories, CaSa by Simon Miller definitely does not skimp out on the good stuff. After all, according to Chelsea, “it’s a curation of my lifestyle.”
