A textile design specialist, Barr developed the Geo pattern based on the world of Origami paper-folding. Geo is the implementation of hard and angular geometric shapes into soft fabrics.
Holographic fabrics are starting to pop up in the fashion world, keep your eyes open on this trend, who knows where it could go. They provide a futuristic and psychedelic look to the fabric bringing it closer glitter and rainbows.
Venezia is a new fabric collection by Rubelli. Pure silk velvet. A reproduction of the Venice-made velvet, which can be dated to the second half of the fifteenth century, with a rich and full hand. Venezia is presented in twenty colourways.
7 – Mona by Sahco
The panel MONA is another highlight of Sahco’s 2013 collection. An extraordinary wallcovering featuring a screened poppy flower in different and very gradual colours. In a digital print the spectacular design is applied to the base RAFIA. The combination of the textile structure of RAFIA and the different colours of the pattern create this expressive wallcovering.
La Favorite presents us with Exotic flora depicted in various colors on white or cream. Almost reminiscent of old scientific illustrations, this wallpaper should look great on an antique study room.
A refreshing return to Scandinavian aesthetic, inspired print and weave design brings an air of natural brilliance. Nordic, a mood of sophisticated simplicity. Cool, warm or summery, the collection easily co-ordinates with an innovative focus tailored to refined modern living.
10 – Laser cut/engraved textiles
