Fromental’s stunning new collection, pays tribute to the exceptional skills of artisans and the pinnacle of design mastery, heralding the dawn of “The New Gilded Age” (Le nouvel âge doré).
“The New Gilded Age” which debuted this January, stands out as Fromental’s most dazzling exhibit at Paris Déco Off to date. The collection created alongside Marta Sala Éditions comprised of four distinctive wallcoverings and serves as a testament to the seamless harmony between the ordinary and the extraordinary. In this symphony of craftsmanship, everyday materials such as paint, ink, and glass gracefully share the spotlight with luxurious silk, velvet, and gold.
Haiku in “Bronzu” (Living room)
Sophisticated, subtle and chic, Haiku is inspired by traditional Japanese screens of the Momoyama period. Spanning from 1573 to 1615, this extraordinary chapter – considered one of the most vibrant in Japanese art history—is characterized by a robust and opulent style.
Molten in “Huxley” (Vestibule)
Aldous Huxley, in his 1954 masterpiece “The Doors of Perception,” eloquently captured the mesmerizing essence of gems and jewellery, celebrating their spiritual and almost otherworldly allure. His insight into the enigmatic beauty of these natural wonders and their artistic transformation highlights an intersection of nature and art that resonates deeply within the world of interior design.
Equus in “Bay” (Dining room)
Equus, with its sumptuous velvet and gestural brush strokes, evokes the image of a just-groomed hide on a handsome thoroughbred horse.
Kiku Garden in “Hyogo” (Study)
Kiku Garden is an elegant, graphic, and highly decorative wallcovering design inspired by the art of Japan and Europe’s enduring fascination with it. It shares much in common with our Kiku wallcovering—the boldly rendered
chrysanthemums, the block coloring—but forgoes the crisp, screen-printed borders of the original. The result is a hugely versatile design that works beautifully in all manner of spaces.
