Roberto Cavalli will launch a home collection based on his iconic animal patterns.

The Italian designer will show the new range - which will include furniture, wallpaper, tiles, and textiles, bed, table and bath linens - during Milan's Salone del Mobile, the city's international furniture and design exhibition in April

Roberto told WWD: "The home and the objects that surround us reflect our lifestyle. The fantasy, memories of a trip.we are always looking for new inspirations to have objects and atmospheres around us where we feel at ease.

"[This collection stems from] personal wish to share with those who love me the joy of living my fashion, my creativity, my philosophy and my style also in the world of home decorating."

The home furnishings line will be distributed worldwide including in Italy, Europe, US, Eastern Europe, The Middle East, China and Asia-Pacific.

Roberto has previously revealed doesn't look at what his peers are creating as he believes he is his own biggest rival.

He said: "I don't judge what is going around me. Honestly. I don't want to see what the other designers do.

"I do what I like, I don't have any competition. Sometimes I say to my team, 'Why we do like that? Because Dolce & Gabbana and Armani do like that? What do I care?' "
