This year we have also expanded our catalog with new proposals for fine furnishing fabrics, embracing the classic style of the magnificent traditional Venetian velvets but also including more modern styles that make the new Palermo, Zebra and Zebrato velvets the ideal fabrics for both classic and more contemporary projects.
Palermo Multicolor Velvet
Palermo is a multicolored velvet whose design, called “jardinière”, has been taken from an original 17th century one and represents floral and naturalistic elements that recreate the compositional schemes and the richness of details and sumptuousness of shapes typical of the Baroque style.
It is proposed in two color variants: petrolio, a very refined combination of blue with warm neutral tones tending to bronze and brown on a beige background, whose reflections are softly accentuated by the brightness of the silk pile.
Palermo Velvet – Multicolored
The other variant named multicolored proposes, still on a beige background, elegant light and dark neutral tones with accents in blue and hibiscus that emerge like precious gems from the rich design. These colors are emphasized and softened by the shiny effects of the velvet.
The motif of the Palermo velvet develops vertically with modules defined by a succession of leaves, flowers and sinuous shoots that frame elegant floral compositions. This design, part of our historical archive which counts more than 3,500 subjects, is inspired by jardinière velvets, the pride of the Genoese silk factories of the late 17th-early 18th century, characterized by the presence of luxuriant polychrome plant and floral themes, much appreciated not only in Italy, but also abroad, especially in England where they were used almost exclusively for interior decoration, given the width of the decorative motifs.
Zebra Animalier Velvets
Furnishing fabrics in animalier patterns gives an exotic and fascinating touch to interiors in a graceful way thanks to a few elements such as a sofa or cushions, or in a more daring way through larger widths and bold combinations. In any case, these patterns are a classic beloved by the world’s most famous interior designers. And velvet, with its softness and silkiness enhances their characteristics.
In our catalog, you can find animalier velvets with different patterns: tiger, leopard, python, crocodile and tortoise. Also zebra , in the handmade Zebra cut velvet and, from today, this pattern is also available in two new versions made with mechanical looms, with a modern allure and optical charm, both with silk and cotton pile: the Zebrato velvet and the Zebra velvet.
With these new proposals we wish to support the creativity of interior designers in their projects to decorate with the beauty, quality and exclusivity of our Venetian velvets.
