RISING DESERT

Rising Desert is the first abstract subject in The Grand Design collection. A creation with an extraordinary decorative effect that evokes a desert environment, where the styles of historical abstraction meet the natural inspiration found in the volumes of rocks and sands worked by the wind. Rising Desert goes beyond the classical idea of wallcovering to get closer and closer to the concept of a work of art. The new design measures twenty meters in total and is available in four colors.

EARLY SUMMER COAST

Early Summer Coast celebrates 19th Century slow living and the revival of simple things in a life lived outdoors, restoring in the observer calmness and relaxation among bays, inlets and leisure scenes on a summer afternoon. It is available in different colors, with a retro appeal to gouaches in shades of gray and beige, to antique porcelains in shades of pink and bright turquoise, or with a decidedly contemporary indigo.

IRISH PONDS

A tribute to nature. IRISH PONDS is a story inspired by en plein air in a snowy white Nordic setting. An unspoiled landscape with the first signs of early spring, a slow awakening punctuated by the beat of a mute nature, hushed and nearly suspended in a dreamy atmosphere. It features a unique pictorial technique which lends a peculiar glare to white, later rendered in two variations when the design is digitized.

WEST OF JAVA

WEST OF JAVA depicts an enveloping Eden of lush nature. A setting of rare refinement that gives interiors a sumptuous effect. The richness and polychromy of the design is the result of both the European textile tradition of papiers peints and the savvy use of digital printing technology. This design revamps the ancient method of trompe l'oeil with a contemporary technical and stylistic twist. Tempera, stamps, airbrush and stencil are some of the techniques used for the realization of this artwork on a large scale.

DARSHAN PANORAMA

Travel atmospheres of colonial flavor. Made entirely by hand in a grisaille, DARSHAN PANORAMA evokes a dreamy image of India through the artistic and textile tradition of European papiers peints. This fabric's flexibility, stability and silky feel suggest splendor through a 30m-wide panoptic view of the landscape. The sand tones are reminiscent of ancient parchment paper and give the design allure and timeless elegance. The collection also offers variants in gunmetal grey and green earth.

HOURS AND BLINKS

Scenes of oriental life suspended in an infinite space-time of contemplation. Poem snippets that evoke harmony and serenity in contact with nature. The inspiration comes from oriental wisdom and from Japanese decoration, lingering on details of lacquered artifacts of the 12th Century. The original design is made with gold leaf, to glorify the rich and precious shapes. The print base is a woven jacquard fabric with delicate shadow and light effects, and three-dimensionality. It is offered in the classic and bold colors of gold and lacquer and in more contemporary pearly pastel tones.
