There is talk of capitonnè already at the turn of 1700 and 1800. The completely manual processing has the purpose of forming square or rhomboid cushions arranged in the net that form a decorative quilting stopped by buttons or studs. The name capitonnè derives from the original use of CAPITON, that is the silk processing waste, that lent itself well to
be reused in this type of padding. So when you sit on a chair or a tufted sofa, you are sitting on a piece of history and, you are using a product that was only possible to produce after having acquired a great manual ability and for this reason we are so proud of our capitonnè and we want show you how it is born.
The capitonnè therefore crosses 300 years of history from post-revolutionary France, passing from the classic Chesterfied of the English tradition to being taken up on pieces of modern design. A decoration that can be declined in various ways and that is what we will do with the images you will see below.
Here is a classic use of capitonnè on an equally classic shape and with a very classic red velvet.
The GRAN FOYER sofa combined with metal and glass coffee tables reaches a new, pleasant and fun freshness
The effect obtained by adding the capitonnè to the sinuous shapes of the ISOLA sofa is completely different.
Here we are faced with a highly iconic piece, where the concept of modern and traditional no longer have any sense, which is perceived almost like a sculpture, a product of the highest craftsmanship
And it is certainly for this iconic aspect that ISOLA has been chosen as the only piece of furniture in one of the most luxurious interior corridors of QUANTUM OF TEH SEAS (click on the images to see the project and \ or the product)
And why not use it as a pure decorative point? As an element of enrichment and focus? Perfect on the small SORBRERO sofa, a piece that alone can give character to an entire hall
while in the FALOST sofa, it is only hinted at. Chosen as a support for the rich cushions, however, it gives its indubitable contribution to the whole piece
