Assumption number one: according to recent research, this 2018 is witnessing a massive return of color, vintage succumbs to the contemporary mood and velvet will be one of the must-have of any decor.

All the greatest designers and leading fashion houses look with interest and attention to the trends that come from the street and social media and often the photos that appear on Instagram become true sources of inspiration. In light of all this comes Influences, the new collection of Carlucci by Chivasso, luxury brand of the German textile publisher Jab Anstoetz. The name of this new line already appears to be very indicative; Carlucci used a mix of influences to create a new eclectic style and reinvigorate his collection of fabrics and wallpapers. The collection is based on three main sources of inspiration: geometric design, Asian influences and Italian fashion design. Evident are the traces of 16th century Chinese and Japanese art, but of the interior design of Renaissance and half-century Italy in Europe. The result is a balanced and suggestive juxtaposition of models, colors and textures. The past meets the present, the East meets the West, the color meets white and black.
