Versace Home at Salone 2017
Versace Home introduces three new lines at the Salone del Mobile 2017: a brand new family titled Le Jardin de Versace, featuring also the exclusive print of bedding and textiles; the sleek VM11 range; and the iconic new Shadov.
Le Jardin de Versace Like a summer dream come to life, Le Jardin de Versace is the print for Versace Home epitomizing a brand new family for living, dining and bedroom. It is a romance of nature in sumptuous vivid colour, centred by a bold butterfly motif and surrounded by golden baroque swirls and flowers. Butterflies fluttering across the design like they were in a garden. Ladybugs and honey bees add to the decoration that is a vision of curves, with no straight lines. Shades of blue and touches of pink match with accents of gold and cool grey, to give an air of noble aristocracy.
The butterflies themselves hold symbolic power: the blue butterfly is a symbol of acceptance, and of meaningful purpose in life. The yellow butterfly denotes love, and in Chinese mythology, seeing a yellow butterfly means you will soon find happiness. If a yellow butterfly lands on you, it means big change is to come. The purple butterfly represents spirituality.
At the heart of the line, the new Le Jardin sofa upholstered in a woven metallic jacquard fabric by Rubelli®, run in a limited edition of 12 pieces signed by Donatella Versace.
The VM11 Collection Taking its name from the address of the Versace Boutique in Milan – Via Montenapoleone 11 – VM11 is a comprehensive new collection with a sleek, aerodynamic design.
A collection of pieces for living and dining, VM11 is defined by its neutral shades of black and white, with bold shapes and contrasts in material, with the signature Medusa silhouette often cast in moon stone – like in the VM11 dining table, interchanging marble inlays with matt black and white veneer on the top.
Shadov The Shadov chair takes the silhouette of the famous Versace Medusa and places it in the heart of the home. The Medusa’s outline is moulded to form the seat of this modern, versatile and elegant chair that will become a new icon of Versace Home.
Shadov will be available in wood as well as in a variety of leather finishes and colors – such as revolution red, armée green, cool grey and cloud - held on sharply modernist powder coated metal legs.
