MISSONIHOME

Concept

New energy, emblematic signs, a whirl of variables. The rich ornamentation encourages a modern vision of furnishings. Cool tones, smooth lines and linear graphics form a concrete counterbalance to eccentricity. Vibrant fixed elements with messages of tradition emerge from the interweave of diversities. The powerful impact of the proposals – particularly textural ones – gives an energy and contagious vitality to decorative projects; both for large and small spaces and suggest free choreographic inventions. Home, designed by Rosita Missoni, embodies the magic of the endless interplay that links furnishing and fashion.

EMBLEMATIC SIGNS.

Seasonal blooms. Delicate poppies in watercolour on linen canvas; boldly contrasting ones on satin or embroidered. Freesias dazzle against the sky or are outlined black on white for outdoor fabrics, or leave their mark on vintage velvet. The story of patchworks, flamed, stripes and geometric shapes, a puzzle of tesserae in a mistily grainy chiaroscuro among pastels. Not forgetting bold, pictorial stripes in shaded or bright bands on sheer backgrounds. Oversized, rigorous chevron and zigzags run hither and thither, as thick and playful as multicolour serpentines: on PVC, embroidered on tulle, embossed on wool.

ARTISTIC FABRICS.

Amazing silk jacquards, like modern watercolour tapestries. Plus seamless and quilted fabrics. Then soft velvets, printed cottons and linens, sheer tulles and distressed macramès. In alternating cool, brilliant and vintage tones, solid and vibrant with blocked–out effects. Modern, understated, beautiful embroidery. On floaty duchess and substantial sateen. A patina over digital prints, suspended over or emerging from gauze and tulle. Knitwear elements. A traditional component, handmade, large and tiny for stunning reliefs, softness and an irregular grain. HIGH–PERFORMANCE FABRICS. Precise technical specs. Trevira fire–retardant solutions, waterproof versions (Tempotest) of outdoor cottons. PVC weaves for mats and lounger covers. The Outdoor collection has a wide choice of patterns for curtains, outdoor seating, cushions for terraces, gardens or boats.

FURNISHING FORMS.

Furnishings are very soft: cushions, poufs, rugs, eye–catching fabric panels. The matching elements are sofas, chairs, lamps and low tables. Material textures are alternated and contrasted with other elements such as leather, PVC or wood produces a highly attractive effect. This mixture moulds volumes and shapes and offers an unusual perspective. New in this collection: the stunning sofas upholstered in watercolours and trompe l’oeil; leather sofas in classic shades; geometric shaped poufs. The chairs “dressed” in patchwork are particularly distinctive, as are the round outdoor chairs with leather lacing, the interior chairs upholstered in printed/embroidered fabrics. Lots of chunky–knit rugs, like important mats. The more unusual items include balloon lamps wound in wool yarn and outdoor director’s chairs, the sculptural sun beds and deckchairs for some serious relaxation.

PLAYS OF COLOUR.

Unstoppable, endless metamorphosis. Flashes of fruit and vegetables, the charm of faded natural shades from sand and white coral to deep, crystal–clear blues and azures. Wispy mists of shadows and light, the intensity of watercolours and enamels together with bright pop and folk tones. Fusions of rich, delicate and shaded tones. A few veins of light in matt gold and classic stories in black–and–white.
