Legendary Venetian textile company Rubelli requites the colourful silk threads of hand-made fabrics with exceptional designs. The brand’s 2017 collection features a harmonious dance of colour and texture

From the elegant and neatly arranged metallic dots on Orion Wall to the soft pastel shade of teal and vague geometric arrangements on the Vermeer Wall, the bold Cordoba portraying a zesty yellow accentuated by patterns inspired by the Indian Ikat and the 3D effect of the Vasarely, named after the acclaimed Op Art painter himself, once again in Rubelli’s 2017 collection the legendary Venetian textile company has succeeded in a mesmerizing arrangement of fabrics. “A wide range of neutral shades reinforced by colours as intense as the light of Venice, with the new feature of whites with a touch of colour to add a tone of freshness and invent the ‘new neutrals,’” says CEO Nicolò Favaretto Rubelli of the new collection. “We have developed all products in the 2017 collection in a dance of harmonies and balance: the style, materials and performance may differ, yet everything is closely linked by the harmony of colour.”

Founded in 1889 during the age of the Risorgimento, the family-run firm has, since its beginning, produced luxury fabrics for high-end furnishings. In the Venetian spirit, Rubelli is known for its sumptuous velvets, silks, damasks and brocades – all rich productions part of the city’s heritage. And while Rubelli has stayed loyal to its Venetian roots, it has also sought to expand and diversify its collection. Contemporary designs as found in its 2017 collection offer artistic breadth and a wealth of new creative solutions to interior design. The brand has also recently launched its first furniture collection striking once again an equilibrium between the contemporary and traditional – traits that make Rubelli continuously alluring. “It’s therefore easy to ‘play’ with fabrics and wallpaper to create countless matches and variations,” adds Nicolò. “Find out for yourselves, try it out and you’ll see it works.”

From faithful reproductions of decadent 19th century wall hangings during the Napoleonic era now on view in the Museo Correr in Venice to rich contemporary furnishings that add edge and beauty to a modern setting, Rubelli’s breadth of creative possibilities is endless. An example of a contemporary setting within a historic Venetian building is the Palazzo Garzoni Moro in Venice, currently on the market through Sotheby’s Realty. Dating back to the mid-15th century, the palazzo now comprises several apartments, with leading design houses such as Rubelli, Arc Linea and Venini, the renowned producer of Murano glass, involved in the styling and finish of the apartments. In such spaces Rubelli fabrics come to life through enrapturing colours made of the most meticulous silk threads. Their balance of traditional and modern design in such settings strikes a happy marriage between the past and present – a dialogue across time that preserves Venetian history and know-how.

Faraway from the magic of Venice Rubelli products continue to maintain the city’s beauty and allure. They can be found at major hotels such as the Sheraton, Hilton, Intercontinental, Westin, Four Seasons, Armani Hotels, St. Regis, Kempinski, Ritz Carlton, The Luxury Collection, Hyatt, Dorchester Collection, Mandarin Oriental, The Address Hotels and Jumeirah Hotel, among many others. The brand’s sumptuous fabrics can also be found decorating the interiors of luxury cruise ships and royal residences throughout the Middle East. And in the brand’s campaigns, fashion and design go hand-in-hand through Italian photographer Giovanni Gastel’s contemporary photography. Through his lens he transports the historic Venetian brand into new places and subject matter. From photographs of Chinese and African people as well as compelling still-lifes, Gastel’s photography gives contemporaneity to Rubelli in a way that breathes the beauty of Venetian fabric into all cultures and places.
