TOUCHED BY GRACE
After many seasons focused on utilitarian objects, functional furniture in bold black/white/bright colors and stylized, energized “urban” patterns, there is a new need to envelope home essentials in a soothing veil of coziness, a welcome break from the hyperactivity and the tyranny of performance that reign today.
Colors are softer, materials are more velvety, with sparkling touches here and there. The home becomes a peaceful haven, a tenderly moving place touched by grace.
Padded or quilted, shock proof and chill-proof: a cozy, modern new style, 100% textile in mock solids and natural looks. Tweeded woolens, felted blends and blurred prints inspired by menswear, dense and mellow comforting textures.
