Tactility First

Texture meets technical mastery in Black Edition’s latest releases for Romo. Muoto weaves need to be felt as well as seen to truly appreciate them, with bouclé, velvet, chenille and silk creating a sense of three dimensionality. Graphic, linear designs come to the fore in fabrics such as ‘Muoto’ which features a chevron pattern that is emphasised by its two different textures, chenille and bouclé, and ‘Takao’, a shimmering printed velvet with blocks of raised lines in a freehand-looking pattern.

Tabala fabrics and wallcoverings tell a similar story, where abstract art is a recurring theme, from the painterly brushstrokes of ‘Jackson’ velvet (also available as a wallcovering) to ‘Imicu’, inspired by mid-20th-century string art. Wallcoverings are printed on grasscloth and raffia, adding that all-important layer of texture that delivers an incredibly sophisticated look.

Fabrics from both collections are also available as cushions, offering that tactile finishing touch to schemes.

Pictured above (left to right) are ‘Oriko’ wallcovering, charcoal, and ‘Takao’ fabric, malva; ‘Imicu’ wallcovering, cumin and ‘Atira’ fabric, shadow; and ‘Jackson’ wallcovering and fabric, charcoal.
