A Design Crush to inspire you to either pick up an embroidery needle….or try winning the lottery one. more. time. I certainly felt as though I’d hit the pattern design lottery when I came across the intricately designed and delicately decorated surfaces found on Combray Textile and Design.
Combray reinterprets the ancestral art of embroidery into haute couture for the home. Paris-born and educated sisters Laure and Aurélie Hug have combined their extensive training in the decorative arts with contemporary influences of art and their travels to create something truly remarkable and worth sharing.
Combray Textile & Design
Working from an eclectic and original pattern collection, each design can be uniquely translated by artisans in Mumbai, India to transform custom curtains, upholstery, pillow, bedding, and even walls into exquisitely decorated and distinctive surfaces. As their website affirms:
The flexibility that our handmade process offers makes the possibilities for creative exploration infinite. Each motif of our lines can be customized to best complement your individual project and adapted to small scale productions. We aim to experiment with a variety of materials to bring our designs to life. Tied cord, wooden or metallic beads, raffia, colored and metallic thread and fabric appliqués are among the wide range of materials we use to adapt and embellish our designs.
This range of pattern inspiration from the Rubik Collection illustrates the endless possibilities that come from the one-of-a-kind bespoke design that they offer. The patterns can be translated not only onto a variety of fine fabrics and leathers, but can include embroidery incorporating bone beads, leather sequins, silk chiffon, glass and even miniature metal springs.
Now, back to dreaming about my lottery win, I am imagining an embroidered ceiling with possibly curtains and a leather side table to match. Where do your Combray Textile & Design decorating dreams take you? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
