An Understated Accent

The term “quiet luxury” could have been invented for de Le Cuona. Known for top-quality linen, its textiles are unfailingly sophisticated, subtly textured and wonderful to touch, with a palette of understated soft neutrals spiked by bolder colours such as ochre and moss green.

Now, the company has launched a range of accessories, creating ready-made products from its sought-after fabrics as well as introducing vases and bowls, occasional furniture, oversized decorative beads and Belgian linen towels. Cosy up to a cashmere throw or a cushion in de Le Cuona’s best-selling ‘Dragonfly’ paisley, admire a sculptural vase or create an extra place to perch with a linen-upholstered stool with leather straps.

The accessories have been categorised according to the imaginary lifestyles that inspired them, from wildlife photographer to art curator. Pictured above is ‘City Architect’ with its palette of soft greys and navy, softening the hard lines and concrete surfaces of a modern, minimal home.
