Rubelli new home textiles collection introduced in Milan


For generations Rubelli has been lauching highly distinctive fabrics, carrying the best of Italian design to textile industry! Once again, in Milan, Rubelli fabrics took the main stage to introduced a new collection. In a grand palazzo in the heart of Milan, Nicolò Rubelli presents hand dyed silks, damasks, velvets and sheers. It’s a new home textiles collection of a dozen designs from the 150-year-old textile company, woven on jacquard looms at the company mill in Cucciago, Lake Como.

Four generations before Nicolò took to the floor, Lorenzo Rubelli was using a similar ritual to woo Venetian noblemen and decorate their grand palazzi with his highly distinctive fabrics. Rubelli has always sought classical inspirations and the current collection is inspired by the likes of Rembrandt, Brahms, Alice in Wonderland and Giotto, but words such as “flame retardant” and “synthetic” are a reminder that Rubelli has moved with the times.

Home textiles, it’s a trend Rubelli hopes to see more of. In the Milan showroom, a creation by young studio Nava+Nava and is upholstered in Giotto, a standout fabric of black and white circles from the new collection. It’s not hard to imagine the decorative concept chair as a statement piece in any hotel lobby.

The new showroom in Milan was a deliberate move to place Rubelli in the thick of it. Last year Nicolò appointed directional designer Paola Navone as creative director for Rubelli for Dominique Keiffer, (the French textile house with which it collaborates) and he has plans to expand the year-old Rubelli Casa furniture range.

A trip to the mill is thousands of metres of home textiles away from the slick Milan showroom. Around 70 per cent of all Rubelli’s designs are made here on mechanical looms that whirr and spin with Olympic stamina. The building is a former viscose factory from the 1880s, and upstairs two young weavers from Venice make specialist fabrics such as cut and uncut velvet on ancient wooden looms.
