LORETTA CAPONI starts a new trend: a tailor-made home decor, designed and crafted specially for SALDA ARREDAMENTI’s furnishings.
The tradition of Florentine embroidery, applied to luxury home linens, starts a new path thanks to Loretta Caponi and SALDA ARREDAMENTI, two companies renowned for their excellence, that teamed up to share a new vision for interior design. A project that includes, apart from furniture, home decor pieces realized by Loretta Caponi, custom-tailored and inspired by SALDA’s distinctive features.
A new challenge for the Florentine maison, that takes the cue from shapes, garnishments and woodcarvings creating exclusive embroideries for placemats, bed linens, blankets, pillows. Every single piece is handmade and realized inside Caponi’s atelier, with precious fabrics and finishings able to enhance the skilled handwork for which the Florentine label is renowned from over fifty years.
Silk, cotton and wool are the canvas on which color is given through skillful gestures, reproducing floral motifs or the exclusive designs of architect and designer Alessandro Mendini, to suit perfectly the different styles of the furnishing.
Loretta Caponi’s attention to detail, craftsmanship and mastery merge into fabrication and design, creating the perfect clothing for SALDA’s goods. An authentic project of interior design that aims to exalt the timeless quality of unique pieces of furniture, distinctly traditional and contemporary at the same time.
A “conversation” between two different crafts, embroidery and furnishing, represented by two family companies that carried through the years an analogous path to value their own tradition, starting a stylistic innovation able to make tradition evolve bringing it to the future. A synergy that highlights the strength of craftsmanship for which Italy excels in the world.
Not just furniture then, but a formulation of a total ambiance, where home linens are not just accessories, but integral part of the interiors.
