Legendary Venetian fabric-maker Rubelli is widely known for the soprarizzo velvet that it made for the Savoy family’s train carriages. But since venturing into the contemporary home furnishings sector, the textile-turned-interiors maker has garnered international attention with its new contemporary furniture line and its edgy collaborations with Armani Casa for example.
Their latest project “The Walls of Venice” hones in on their century-old heritage like no other. The new wallcovering collection is the result of the inextricable combination of tradition and innovation, Rubelli’s own design philosophy.
The new wallcovering is in fact the reproduction of some of the most iconic Rubelli fabrics.
“Thanks to in-depth research into the materials and an almost fanatical precision during the production process, a collection with very strong textile connotations came into being. In fact the sense of the texture, the sheen of the silk and the 3D have successfully been created, as if they were real fabrics,” Rubelli said.
