Flora and fauna

"Once a year the gardens bloom" - sang Anna Herman,But the designers clearly do not agree with the singer, and for several years now they offer to surround themselves with flowers: large and small, bright and pastel, motley and monotonous, realistic and imaginative, inspired by Japanese watercolors and Provence landscapes. Painted, embroidered, woven, pasted ... By themselves, combined with paradise birds, butterflies, a wide and thin strip. Due to the fact that floral and floral ornaments are equally organic on any surface, all kinds of fabrics (flax, silk, chiffon, satin, taffeta, organza, satin, wool), wallpaper and wall coverings have submitted to it. Alexey Eliseev, general manager of Manders stores: - As much as I was not busy, I always find time to look at the DecoRus exhibition. To communicate with our regular partners, for 20 years of work with which we have already become friends. At this jubilee exhibition there was a surprise, which was presented to us by Sanderson. Analyzing the flow of orders coming from Russia, the designers of the brand have collected a special catalog Russian Classic, which included 40 of the most popular designs for Russians. Basically it's floral motifs. A total of 100 copies were issued. Several of them are in our stores. Particularly noteworthy is the new collection of the brand Zoffany Constantina Damask. Its basis was made of silk fabrics with classical damask ornament, which is very popular with Russian customers. In addition to the traditional interpretation of the drawing, there are also modern variations made using innovative technologies.

Eastern motifs

The East is not only a delicate, but veryIn demand. Designers do not cease to address their oriental motifs and textures in their collections, reproducing them in their original form, and reinterpreting them in a modern way, mixing with the folklore traditions of different countries: traditional ornaments, embroidery, weaving and knitting. In the collections you can find fabrics resembling quilts and woven carpets, with textures imitating the technique of needlework, with paisley ornaments and ikat and girich, but in unexpected color combinations and graphic performance.

Embroidery, 3D and other effects

Embroidery is back in fashion! And if before it was mostly decorated with velvet, silk and lace, now more and more flax, cotton, blended and woolen fabrics. Techniques of performance are also very diverse: smooth, dashed stitch, crocheted stitch, a-la chenille and blackwark, beads, gold, paillettes. At the stands of Nobilis, Morris & Co, GP & J Baker there was a flax embroidered with bright fantasy flowers and birds, and cotton with ethnic ornaments, and luxurious silks with a classic pattern, and weightless nets with floral embroidery, which otherwise as a work of art and not You will name. Especially effective were the fabrics on whichEmbroidery was used to give the drawing an additional volume. To this end, many manufacturers embroidered the individual motifs of the print pattern, others preferred to stitch out the contours of the print with a more voluminous thread (suta, wool, velvet ribbons and even felt), while others embroidered the whole pattern with a thick thread. Our attention was drawn to the architectural ornament, embroidered on flax with a heavy cotton thread and imitating the famous painting technique of pointillism. This gives the fabric a modern shade, and in combination with metallic threads and pearly glitter creates an additional volume effect (Harlequin). Alexey Eliseev, general director of storesManders: - The collection of textile and wallpaper Purity presented by the Harlequin brand has all chances to become a Russian bestseller. Very elegant, representing a modern interpretation of classical motifs and ornaments and at the same time possessing zero contrast. Especially spectacular look shiny atlases with the effect of ombre and flax, decorated with sparkles, refined floral patterns and appliqués. Complementary fabric wallpaper offers modern damask patterns, reminiscent of lace and elegant floral designs. Lace making master also keep pace with modern fashion, and at the stand of the Scottish company MYB Textiles we found stunning examples of modern Nottingham lace with voluminous geometric patterns woven in old machines. The unique technology of weaving and twisting fibers of wool allows to receive soft and weightless cloths with a volumetric pattern on a transparent grid. A combination of different in structure interlacing gives the picture a unique depth and texture. Manufacturers of wallpaper also with might and main mastermodern technologies. In addition to the already familiar drawings of digital and 3D, wall panels with optical stereo effect appeared. Such wallpaper of the French brand Elitis (Wonderland collection) we saw on the stand of the company Skol. When you look at the image of the Rudolf deer at different angles, it appears that it has a volume. This effect is obtained by superimposing a layer of transparent plastic with a complex convex texture that plays the role of a multitude of lenses. Even more exotic option we found on the same stand with the Belgian company Omexco - wall coverings Nomad from the leaves of the Philippine water lily, painted in a variety of shades. In general, wallpaper that reproduce natural textures,Incredibly popular. The unique collection of wall coverings Armani Casa, presented at the stand of Piterra company, was no exception. The legendary couturier has chosen the colors, structures and textures borrowed from nature: trees, tropical plants, stone. Drawing our attention is also the wallpaper of the DutchBrand Eijffinger at the stand of the company "Empire Decor".
