Mood,Protective

In a world marked by demographic and technological transformations, this trend channels a desire for a noiseless, empty neutral space.  There‘s an increasing need for individuality, safety and a sense of well-being. The house becomes a nest, that isolates and protect us. The colours are soft and subtle with nuances that reminds us of haze and dusk.  Maroon and a saturated pink give warmth to a rather cool palette. Material and finishes are translucid, opaque, diaphanous, providing a calm and relaxed environment.

Solitude and silence are the ultimate luxury.

Mood,Exuberant

In a world that feels ever more threatening, a little diversion and distraction is attractive indeed. Movement, improvisation, surprise. This trend is expressed creatively in experimental approaches to materials, colours, products and styles. In terms of design, it is joyful and informal, sometimes extravagant.  The colour palette features vibrant yellow, fuchsia and emerald green combined with faded black and sand to give a dramatic effect. Materials and finishes are visually exciting. No more soft and subtle, but glossy and iridiscent. The house is exuberant, hedonistic and reflects the importance of living in the moment.

The message delivered by the exuberant mood is: Visual impact is all.

Mood,Mindful

In a world marked by pollution, environmental disasters and where the ecosystem is in danger due to our irresponsible behaviour, this trend reflects a desire to protect and preserve the environment for the greater good.  The house is sustainable, eco and balanced; mindful and modest. In this context it‘s not only innovative approaches to recycling that play a role, but also a hand-made artisanal look, which expresses a respect for traditional craftsmanship and manufacture. The colours are soft and warm. Natural colours inspired by earth and greenery,  harmonising with anthracite, sky blue and a lighteer accent of rose.  Material and finishes comes from nature, like wood, raw and natural. Textiles are characterized by surfaces of vital and natural...

Drapesfor hotels and stylish homes

C onceived and weaved in Italy, using only flame retardant yarns from Trevira, the fabrics designed for drapes feature a unique mix of design and touch and feel. The yarns chosen for the weaving are of different types. ‘Waffle’ brings an element of dimensionality to the fabrics. ‘Rugiada’ makes use of the new heat-shrinking Trevira yarn. Small water drops glide on the sheers like dew on leaves. Besides the weaved textiles, the Studio has designed a variety of patterns that are digitally printed on different textured grounds. This is just a hint for our clients, that may create their own exclusive design.  [eltd_blockquote text="Featuring a palette of whites, greys and browns, the designs fit in hotels, yachts...

Mood,Original

This trend aims to highlight the cultural importance of disseminating ideas around the world while cherishing and preserving identity. The house is an expression of our origins, celebrates our roots and at the same time is a mix of other cultures. One noticeable feature of this trend is the idea that we don‘t just live with our furniture, we also relate it to our memories and story. This stylistic universe has a colour palette that combines leached-out tints with more vital hues. On the one hand, more neutral shades such as blue ashes, faded plum and pale pink mix with intense ochre and jade green. [eltd_blockquote text="Original has a dual meaning. It is intended as first, existing from the...

Award winning,Trompe l’Oeil Collection

Kilim rugs are world re-known for the simplicity of the sign and the unique flat tapestry weaving.

The collection features different themes: 'Sicilian Baroque' with the typical facades of the churches and palaces of Sicily, 'Roman Empire' with temples and statues, 'Behind the...

Milan,Urban Chic Loft

A loft is a space originally built for industrial use that was later converted into living space. Lofts are characterized by wide-open rooms, high ceilings supported by thick columns and large windows. A loft is like a blank canvas and it can be a challenge to convert it into an apartment. Empty spaces with no amenities like a kitchen or a bedroom. This space is part of a large compound isolated from the street with beautiful greenery all around. Our goal was to keep the original architecture made of iron and concrete, but develop a living space cosy and chic. The clients did also request to have a studio at ground floor level, divided from the private area...
