The theme behind the new Bevilacqua fabrics
From more than 3,500 designs in our historical archive, we have selected exclusive motifs for the new 2023 collection of fine Bevilacqua fabrics. They interpret nature with the timeless elegance and beauty of one of the most refined artistic movements: the Art Nouveau style.
This trend was also called “floral style” in Italy because one of the main subjects were natural elements such as flowers, leaves and stems, graphically rendered in a stylized but highly decorative manner. We wanted to celebrate nature’s beauty and regenerative force with a collection that enhances its aesthetic and symbolic power in shapes and colors. It includes the allure of animal prints, which recall distant and exotic settings.
We have also devoted great attention to soprarizzo, a handmade velvet which fully embodies the value of nature because of its preciousness. A unique fabric in which each piece is different from the other and in which the tiny imperfections are the sign of its exclusivity as with any creation of the highest craftsmanship.
Even the chosen color palette has strong ties with nature in the deep blue of the night, the bright green of precious stones, the warm red of sea corals, the iridescent gray of pearls and the precious yellow of antique gold.
At the Salone del Mobile you can admire them in their magnificence and touch their silky softness.
LIBERTY SOPRARIZZO VELVET
Liberty soprarizzo velvet, made by hand on original wooden looms from the 1700s, is an exclusive fabric that repurposes a motif typical of the Art Nouveau style. Sinuous elongated leaves frame iris flowers in a composition of extreme elegance and refinement, highlighted by the special workmanship of the soprarizzo.
RINASCIMENTO SOPRARIZZO VELVET IN BLUE
Crafted by hand on original 18th-century looms, the Rinascimento soprarizzo velvet is a masterpiece of Renaissance-inspired design. The fabric’s elegant motifs of stylized flowers and leaves are rendered in iridescent hues through a special handwork process, and its new Blue color adds depth and richness to the already splendid pattern.

The Symbiosis Screen
In our booth at the Salone del Mobile we will also display a new product, made with one of our velvet in collaboration with IED, Istituto Europeo di Design. The “Symbiosis” screen is the work of designer Nicole Sbabo, who designed it as a functional piece of furniture to create modular spaces, seeking the right accord between sinuous lines and angular features. The metal structure is composed of three connected and movable parts that combine semi-circle shapes, covered by Lune velvet, with a central part formed by a grid. This element creates a logical thread between the surrounding space and the screen, while giving it transparency and lightness.
The Symbiosis screen can be customized by replacing the Lune velvet with one of Bevilacqua’s fabrics of your choice. In the image gallery below, you can find an example made with Grottesche velvet.

The Canfin lamp
The Canfin lamp is a design by architect Diana Zabarella, the result of a collaboration with Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua and produced by Selène Illuminazione. It is named after the typical Venetian oil lamp used in boats, outdoors and at home. With a structure made of wood and LED bulbs rechargeable with a USB plug, it features some of our most sumptuous damasks: the Giardino Craquelé damask, the Grottesche Craquelé damask and the Craquelé damask.
We look forward to seeing you at our booth to personally introduce you to these and other wonderful products for your most exclusive decorating projects.
