    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 27/04/2018

There is no denying that the French maison's handbag is one of the most globally recognised icons and coveted items, but mention of their furniture line may draw a few blank looks or two. There are no shortages of accessory or fashion houses that also cover interior living grounds, be it American classic authority Ralph Lauren Home or the Italian peacock that is Versace Home. But what exactly is the Hermès aesthetic and what is so enticing about it? How does it encapsulate its high-end luxuriance when their art direction seems to be less is more?
