Furnishing fabrics and wallpapers hold a unique place in the collections for the home. Rhythm and colour, brightness and radiance… They open up new horizons, whether inspired by the historical designs of Hermes or initiating new graphic languages.
Favoured instruments for storytelling, they are a canvas for chromatic variations and digressions of the imagination. They bring a touch of lightness and freedom to the collections. A playground for lines and images, the wallpaper retains traces of the act, tiny vibrations of the brush or print block. The weave, in turn, is an alchemy perpetually reinvented. Cottons, wools, silk failles – each material has its own feel, hang, and use. Structuring the space around them, fabrics and wallpapers are an invitation to play on different scales, and to introduce new perspectives into the home.
Florence Lafarge, creative director of the Hermès home textiles collection is hosting a Maison Universe event and installation taking place at the 691 Madison Avenue Flagship boutique from November 7th and will run through Saturday, November 18th.
The installation, welcomes one into the universe of colors and patterns from La Maison Hermès: a creative and playful experience in the Hermès world. Guests of the event will be able to explore all 4 floors of the Madison Boutique and discover unique elements of the WHITE CANVAS installation.
The focal point will be the 2017 collection of furnishing fabrics and wallpapers that feature patterns and designs created by the Italian artist and illustrator, Gianpaolo Pagni.
An interactive space on the Maison floor of the boutique will transform throughout the evening into palettes of pattern and color as the space is covered with Hermès wallpapers and guests are encouraged to stamp the walls with custom Hermès stamps inspired by the wallpaper designs.
