A home furnishings collection curated by Melissa Gorga of Bravo TV's Real Housewives of New Jersey will be presented at Melissa Gorga, Real Housewives of New Jersey, home decor to launch at Joss & MainJoss & Main this week.

According to the online shopping site, Gorga's "Home Italian Style" collection is inspired by the splendor of Old World Italy, reflective of the Gorgas' opulent Montville Township, N.J. mansion.

The Gorgas' 13,000-sq.-ft. Italian Renaissance-inspired house features a lot of oversize, ornate and unbreakable pieces (the couple have three small children).

"Designing 'Italian Style' is, to some, a little over-the-top," Gorga told Joss & Main. "No matter how lavish a room might be, it still needs to feel like you are at home."

The collection launches at 9 p.m. August 27 on the site and will include lighting, rugs,mirrors, upholstery, case goods and accents. Melissa Gorga, RHONJJoss & Main's members-only sales are typically limited to three days.

Gorga's husband, Joe, brother to RHONJ co-star Teresa Giudice, designed and built the couple's home, which recently sold in advance of the Gorgas' planned move to Franklin Lakes.
