Substance And Extravagance: Rubelli’s 2015 Collection

Rubelli has launched its 2015 fabric and wall coverings collection, Substance and Extravagance. The collection honours Italian craftsmanship and celebrates the past, present and future, both visually and through tactility. The wall coverings collection reinterprets signature Rubelli fabrics, creating a sophisticated and elegant interior.

Mirafiore (pictured top) is a 100% cotton printed velvet, filled with roses in two colours of fuchsia red, turquoise blue with green mélange.

Dorian Gray takes inspiration from an archived printing block. Special lurex weft yarns create a stunning floral silk jacquard. The raised effect is achieved through the weave development and the metallic weft yarn.

Gropius is a cotton and viscose jacquard velvet. The diagonally arranged polka dots create movement on the surface, in metallic colours on raised viscose pile, for a matte and shiny lustre.

Gritti Wall is inspired by a patchwork of textile fragments. The pattern takes inspiration from the seventeenth century, recreated to look like silk fabric in vinyl on a nonwoven base.

Early 18th century engravings by Luca Carlevarijs inspire Volie de Venise. The light strokes on the sheer fabric create an ethereal and romantic look.

Terrazzo recreates the typical patterns of Venetian floors, which are made up of tailor’s chalk, linseed oil and marble fragments (an ancient recipe found in Palladio’s the Four Books of Architecture).

Seventeenth century English textile design and superimposed marble texture in soft shades of jade green, pink, yellow and silver form a historical fabric called Mirage. The sheer woven fabric is intended to leave the memory of the pattern.

Lady Hamilton Wall is inspired by an eighteenth century sketch from London’s Victoria & Albert Museum . The pastel-coloured floral patterns add a light and fresh touch to the wall.

Gran Canal Wall is a digital print on a non woven base, designed for the wall. Inspired by an etching from the early eighteenth century by Luca Carlevarijs, the pattern is made up of 1 metre panels at a height of 3 metres, creating the sensation of entering the actual scene.

Lady Roxana takes inspiration from an original pattern from the second half of the nineteenth century. The digital pattern captures the brushstrokes of each flower, for a dramatic full width repeat.

The Ingrid jacquard fabric is a mix of wool and cotton. The geometric pattern is reminiscent of mosaics. To enhance the softness, the fabric was milled after production.
