Fortuny - Sorrento
Fortuny hand printed cotton front in blue, with an ottoman back and jaspé silk piping.
Fortuny was a Spanish born artist who made his fame in Venice. He took ornamental motifs and reinterpreted them in a modern decorative style. Fortuny drew decorative models and designs from precious Renaissance velvets and from fabrics from exotic cultures. His residence, the Plazzo Fortuny, is now a museum that is well worth the visit in San Marco.
Fortuny fabrics have been made since the 1900’s in Venice, and their method is still a closely guarded secret. The handmade technique for producing this extraordinary fabric is probably by a wax release method. They produce very limited amounts of this remarkable material, and we are delighted to use them in our cushions.
Size: 51 x 36cm
Front: Fortuny printed cotton
Why we love it:
This extraordinarily beautiful and gentle floral fabric is the sophisticated way to bring nature and botanicals to your home. The pattern is evocative of the grandeur of Venice, while being subtle enough to be modern.
Works well with:
Our Fortuny cushions have a slight sheen, more like a silk cushion than a traditional cotton, and as such can work with a variety of finishes, particularly matts and soft sheens. This deep blue on an old white background is best matched with other blues, as well as neutrals.
Doesn’t work with:
Leather and thickly woven fabrics will fight with this smooth, silk like cushion. While the floral design is subtle, you have to be careful about how you combine this with other patterns, especially when on patterned furniture fabrics. It does work brilliantly with our other Fortuny floral designs, to create a cohesive mix of colours with a consistent design.
