A progressive mix of continental art and modern design
There’s no doubt that European style has penetrated cultures around the globe. Even your walls cannot escape the continental influence, extracting every morsel of poise and sophistication flowing from the great cities of Europe. Now this eternal spring of elegance and grace has generated a contemporary wallcovering that draws on both modernism and classical history to deliver the next step forward in interior design.
Italy has changed, but Rome is Rome – Robert De Niro
The Glam & Glory Collection is a savvy urban translation of traditional elements, producing a wallpaper that can cross boundaries and live happily in both old and new buildings around the world. Making use of the artistic device known as pointillism, small fragmented dots sprawl across the surface area and optically merge to form shimmering images of great beauty.
Mottled gold lunar circles appear in a captivating repeat pattern that is occasionally punctuated with beautiful Swarovski crystals. Subtle greys, silvers and charcoals merge to form a broken zig-zag tower climbing to the ceiling, a perfect backdrop for slimline furniture and modern lighting. Tiny squares of crimson, rose and lime form a stunning tangle of tendrils that is almost mosaic when set against a black background, the effect amplified by dark stained bamboo floorboards.
The Glam & Glory Collection features eight decorative motifs delivered in a kind of decayed ornamentation, masterfully set against a glazed patina finish that echoes the past. Yet the colour schemes are delicate, they exude optimism and sit perfectly within the realm of modern architecture. Now you can have your cake and eat it too, with a collection that radiates energy whilst soaking up the restrained splendour of past times. Consequently, the collection is equally at home in a busy urban setting or a building bathed in history.
History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future – JFK
