Welcome back, everyone!
Casa Vogue is published by Vogue Italia. When it was launched in 1968, it was published monthly. While it includes the sorts of interiors and house show & tell of other glossy interiors magazines, this one has excellent coverage of current furniture design, art trends and collecting, and every aspect of furnishing or decoration, particularly home goods of all sorts.
Much of the furniture and small knick-knacks in this title are one of a kind artworks, or manufactured on a small studio level. Unlike, say, Living, Etc., this title isn’t about DIY, either. Most of the pages show expensive decorator or artist interiors.
In order to provide this sort of avant-garde interior information, the pages are about 2/3 advertising. Looking backwards for inspiration, these ads are as interesting as the editorial, showing, as they do, some of the best of contemporary Italian design.
As with so many fine things, the 1990s brought financial difficulties. The last issue of this title was published in July 1995. That was not the last of Casa Vogue, however. A few years after it stopped being published separately, Vogue Italia began including the title as one of the many supplements it ships with. Casa Vogue now comes out in a spring and fall edition, concurrent with the April and October issues of Vogue Italia.
Casa Vogue and Vogue Italia can be paged at the PERS desk, 6th floor in the library.
