Ave Roma!

septimo

The main collection of the season takes the name of the city of Rome and its bohemian neighborhoods, its romantic decadence and the artistic richness of its streets full of history.

Composed of a wide variety of fabrics of different textures that are perfectly coordinated among them, Rome is also linked to our classic smooth linen Gothenburg, the new velvet Steel and the three new double width proposals.

Its chromatic range is based on a subtle palette of four pastel tones: light blue, light green, pink and beige, always combined with a raw color to get delicate contrasts.

Trastevere: a “pied-de-coque” fabric with a more informal look. Using an interesting fantasy spinning, you get a relief that slightly blurs the geometric design.

Colosseum: spike fabric or knit Hungría with a soft and pleasant touch thanks to its viscose, cotton and linen. Ideal for both curtains and upholstery, its raw cotton texture gives the fabric a clean and beautiful color contrast.

Borghese: geometric design that shows an irregular pattern in a color where the double fabric structure makes it resistant to upholstery and soft for curtains or plaids.

Prati: chenille texture with vintage effect or worn thanks to a fabric construction where the weft of chenille lets breathe the warp of raw color.

Gothenburg: our main linen, one of our star fabrics that was born as a “me-too” of the super sales Luxembourg. Its 5 colors combine perfectly with the entire Roma collection.

The history of Rome on the ground

The decline and fall of the Roman Empire is a question of the most debated and studied issues in history. Some say that it took place after the barbarian invasion, others speak of a gradual cultural transformation. Be that as it may, we walk among its ruins and look at its floors plagued with mosaics (opus tesellatum) made of marble, ceramic, tile, glass, stone and even shells. Precious works of art themselves and a valuable source to know how they lived, how they dressed, what did they eat, how were their gladiator contests, their sports, their agriculture, their hunting. Sometimes they even capture the Romans themselves in detailed and realistic portraits.
