Loro Piana Interiors 2023 collection

Paris Déco Off, the reference moment for the presentation of the new collections for interior decoration, came back to January, after the break due to the pandemic, being also the occasion where the Loro Piana Interiors novelties for 2023 were introduced.

The starting point for the study of fabrics and accessories was the natural qualities of the fibres, which Loro Piana Interiors has carefully researched and brought to the surface with careful processing, the result of a long tradition and innovation in textiles. The wallcoverings, fabrics, blankets and accessories in the collection are all directly inspired by nature’s creations. The appealing irregular consistency of raffia and jute adds textural interest to wallcoverings, while those in wool channel the fibre’s enveloping warmth. Japanese igusa rush elevates interiors with properties renowned since ancient times. The extreme purity of silk, mohair and cashmere enhances the colours, ensures softness and plays with light, indulging the creativity of patterns and weaves. The versatility of linen, on the other hand, has been captured, celebrating its lightness in surprisingly smooth surfaces.

Nature also shines through in all the undyed fabrics, which showcase colours and patterns created using blends of fibres in their original shades. Cashmere Raw and Pecora Nera® play with natural hues: from the lightest of beiges to buckwheat, dove grey and brown. These fabrics are based on meticulously selected fibre spun from the fleeces of Cashmere goats and dark New Zealand merino sheep, and no dyes are used. Each blend is unique, one of a kind, just like the wonders wrought by nature.

«Loro Piana Interiors has always stood out for its expertise with natural fibres», explains Francesco Pergamo, Director of Loro Piana Interiors. «Our time-honoured textile know-how, advanced research and development activities and fully verticalized production process enable us to turn extraordinary raw materials into even more exceptional fabrics and accessories. In this case we wanted to develop an especially original interpretation of the chosen fibres, and the result is a very polished collection with a modern, urban spirit».
