What’s trending is cyclical - so the things that were once popular have a way of revitalizing themselves in unexpected, interesting and fantastic ways.

The main benefit is that it comes with the unmatched stain-free technology of FibreGuard and for added benefit it has backing as well - making it suitable for those angular shapes that are synonymous with a mid-century design.


St-Moritz comes in velvets with a deep saturated colour. As a cotton viscose linen and 100 000 Martindale rubs it is a very reasonable option for this sort of application.



A walk through a palace is always inspiring, but this collection in particular honours the depth of design beyond first impressions.
