A culmination of ideas, inspiration and original artwork has been the creative force behind the new Black Edition over the past two years. Origins derived from couture fashion, 20th Century Abstract art, folk embroidery, Indian Ikat designs and Byzantine glass mosaic are all artistically re-imagined and integrated through stunning colour.
With a hand painted look, ombré shading and age-old artisan techniques there is a sense of faded grandeur, whilst the vibrant colour and subtle use of metallic yarns keeps the overall feel sophisticated and modern. Stunning digital prints of large-scale florals are accompanied by intricate embroideries, damask and floral jacquard weaves, spray-dyed velvets and wonderfully tactile multi-coloured stripes.
‘Black Edition has given us the opportunity to be more experimental with qualities, techniques and design in a considered, individual way. The essence of Romo continues through our signature colour palette and lively, contemporary prints. Black Edition is richer and more tactile, with sumptuous qualities such as velvets and silks giving warmth and luxury. Innovative and new techniques such as digital printing and spray dying have enabled us to create complex designs with intense colour especially created for the luxury interiors market’. Emily Mould, Design Director.
