Salone del Mobile, Milan’s Furniture Fair, is, at its most basic, interior decorator porn. There are home objects of every shape and size: from luscious couches to high-concept design prototypes. But, in the midst of it all, there are a string of highly inviting chairs from fashion houses. They may just be sofas, but they're also extensions of these luxury brands -- and shed light on very different ideas of what comprises a stylish home. Behold, our favorites:

1. Marni: The Italian luxury brand has released a limite edition of the project "100 chairs," which includes several pieces -- from chaise-lounges to rocking chairs and tables -- in bright colors linked, as they say, "to the idea of the urban sitting room."

2. Versace: The brand unveils a collection of twelve limited edition pieces by Nikolai and Simon Haas -- the "wonderboys of the Southern Californian design world" -- for the brand's 2013 home collection. The line, which features several Versace-esque leather sofas with golden gromets, was made by the brothers at their workshop in Los Angeles.

3. Louis Vuitton:  Vuitton first debuted its Objets Nomades collection during Art Basel last December. It features 16 travel-inspired objects, including foldable furniture. A highlight is this beach chair by Marteen Baas, which looks like an attachè case, and opens up to reveal white, woven cotton straps.

4. Hermès: The French luxury brand debuts a new home collection, "Nécessaires d’Hermès," which features wallpaper by French designer Phillippe Nigro, and a collection of furnishing fabrics and wallpapers -- seen here on one particularly plush chaise.
