Luxury fabric specialist, Kobe, has been chosen to showcase its products at the prestigious Paris Déco Off event, taking place in the city for the sixth consecutive year in January.
The exclusive five-day event, open to professionals and the general public, is one of the most esteemed in Europe, hosting the crème de la crème of textile houses – selected by invitation only.
David Harris, managing director of Kobe UK, said: “We were delighted to be chosen to take part in this internationally renowned event. It’s an opportunity to reinforce our brand with over 21,000 professionals from all over the world who visit Paris to inspire and update themselves on the latest in the world of interiors.”
During the show, the company will be launching its newest introductions for 2015, City Chic and Brissac.
Inspired by the Hollywood’s Golden Age, known for its lavish glitz and glamour, City Chic brings together a rich array of interior fabrics, providing endless creative opportunities. From opulent velvets to fluid satins, plains in trendy colours, patterns ranging from traditional pied de poulé to fantasy animal skin and natural fabrics incorporating metallic yarns, its vivacious style lends itself to those who dare to set trends.
Brissac pays homage to the French Napoleonic Empire style period, featuring sumptuous printed metallic velvets in a range of intricate patterns including toile de jouy florals, medallions and Greek and Roman inspired ornaments. The colour palette is also reminiscent of the Empire period, ranging from ecru and beige to pastel tints and shades of gold and brown.
The two new collections complement Kobe’s existing portfolio of luxurious fabrics and follow the recent launch of Aurora – a range of high satins, sumptuous velvets and intricately patterned jacquards, capturing the essence of Nordic light tones.
