Upholstery fabrics: a great creative medium… from the mists of time! Good news: weavers continue to infuse beauty and harmony through their rigorous work at the loom. At MAISON&OBJET Editeurs, this heritage and precious craftsmanship are embodied in majestic stagings devised specially for the show.
Nothing is too good to magnify these wonderful and ever more luxurious materials, as evidenced by the arrival of LORO PIANA. The distinguished Italian company’s authentic cashmere is exclusive, revealing its exceptional feel, guaranteed by dedicated herds of goats in Mongolia. The high-end carpet editor DEIRDRE DYSON revives ancestral Nepalese craftsmanship in creations acclaimed internationally for their originality. At THEVENON, an editor and crafter since 1908, the magic of weaving and rich archives, led by toiles de Jouy prints, are seducing the big names in design and fashion.
Equally extraordinary textures and patterns are unveiled by wall covering experts. Elegant winks to heritage pieces: domino wallpapers from ANTOINETTE POISSON, whose collections are reviving the splendor of eighteenth century interiors. Designed by OMEXCO, the Brocades collections give the illusion of being embroidered on silky threads. The printing technique and the half-matte, half-shiny threads create subtle effects.
A major element of interior decoration, textiles nourish today’s creativity with the rich visual heritage of yesterday. In partnership with the Museum of Printed Textiles in Mulhouse (MI.S.E.), BARRISOL, the world leader of stretched ceilings, offers more than 6 million visuals from the largest base of textile archives in the world, offering the possibility exclusively reedit the finest print creations. And so history boosts home-fashion.
