You’ll be forgiven for doing a double take when viewing these ottomans and curtain fabric. The clever display as seating cubes provides a playful element that makes us think of lovely gifts wrapped and ready or even better, sweet wrappers encasing delicious centres, rather than simply an assortment of striped fabrics. Taking inspiration from the relaxed way of life that is typical of Provence, France, these striking fabrics from Manuel Canovas smack of French sophistication. The collection stands out for its vivid tones and bright colour combinations – breaking it away from the everyday. The range includes striking, yet harmonious contrasts such as turquoise and absinthe, manganese and terracotta, and blue and beige – some unusual mixes, but distinctive nonetheless.
