OUTSTANDING TEXTILE COLLECTIONS
AT HOME COUTURE EVENT OF CO VAN DER HORST
Every year Co van der Horst presents the textile novilties during a stunning show of new colors,
designs, techniques and styling. This year’s topics at the Home Couture Event were the interior pieces
of couturier Claes Iversen, Studiopepe and Rubelli. For this occasion, VITA DI LUSSO was invited
to have an interview with Nicolo Favaretto Rubelli, the 5thgeneration of this Italian family company.
Extensive textile collection
Textile has been the core business of the family company since 1905. Nowadays the presentation is unparalleled and expanded with curtain- and furniture fabrics, blinds, wallpapers, carpets, rugs and paint. Co van der Horst shows their textiles on large hangers so that customers can visualize colors, designs and textures.
To stay ahead on trends, they visit various (international) events. In this way, Co van der Horst can present for instance the entire collection of Hermès and give podium to young talents like Mae Engelgeer during the Home Couture Event.
Tarattata by Studiopepe
After the successful collaboration for ‘Co Avantgarde’ and the introduction of the table collection ‘Wiemer’ in Milan during the Salone del Mobile, Co van der Horst and Studiopepe launched the new ‘home textile’ collection at the Home Couture Event with cushions, rugs and poofs, named TARATTATA.
Evident, intense and geometric, just like we have seen earlier of this international design duo. The fabrics for this collection were supplied by textile partner Dedar Milano. Was it a co-incidence that Co van der Horst selected this very same fabric earlier this year during Paris Déco Off?
Rubelli Casa from Venice
This fabric house from Venice shows how progressive tradition can be. Innovation, research and investing in new machinery make sure that Rubelli, after more than 150 years, is still successull.
At the Home Couture Event of Co van der Horst, Rubelli showed textiles, but also the Rubelli Casa Collection. Under the directions of Nicolo Favaretto, a luxurious room was decorated with amazing fabrics and furniture pieces. My personal favourite is the Pila 47. An elegant chair, that is upholstered with handwoven Venetian highlights; a so called ‘Toile de Venice’. Pila 47 was the address of the former headquarters of Rubelli and the images were inspired by the Venetian books of the privat collection of the founder of this family company.
