A lot of people love the dior-inspired furniture at Dior, but you might not be able to buy it in the United States.
A spokesperson for Dior’s parent company, Dillard’s, told The Hollywood Reporter that the company does not sell dior products in the U.S. due to licensing restrictions.
The spokesperson did not offer any specifics as to what restrictions prevent companies from selling dior items.
However, according to the International Business Times, Dior has already begun to roll out dior furniture to stores in China.
That means you’ll likely see dior couches, loungewear, bedding, and even a new version of the Dior Slides.
(The company has also launched a Dior Slide smartphone app.)
What are the diolines, anyway?
Dior dioline stands for dior, which is French for “diamond.”
While diolinae is often associated with dior and diamonds, the term actually comes from the Greek word diolus meaning “a diamond,” according to CNN.
According to the Dictionary of the Ancient World, the word dior came from the Italian word dioclere meaning “to shine,” which is what a diamond actually is.
So, if you think about it, a diamond is a piece of jewelry that is almost always made of diamonds, which are naturally soft and shiny.
So there’s a certain appeal to that.
But there are other, less traditional uses for diolinines, too.
In ancient times, diolinos were often used as jewelry.
Diolinos can be made of gold or silver and can even be made with diamonds.
And as we’ve noted before, dior is a brand that has a history of wearing jewelry, especially jewelry made from gold and silver.
