Bring The Outdoors Inside

New Omexco Collections Exclusively At ROMO

RAINBOW

The explosion of colors of recycled sari silk, woven with strips of bakbak (bark of the banana tree) is at the origin of the name of this top-notch wallcovering collection. Each meter of this product is unique, since the colors of the silk alternate, without ever being repeated.  Squares of crushed paper, printed in faded shades and glued on a non-woven backing are in perfect harmony with the bakbak and the natural silk. 

Two geometric motifs, embossed on a printed non-woven wallcovering, complete the range and make it possible to combine different colors, structures and materials in one room.

COBRA

Snake designs are sliding through this new wallcovering collection from Omexco called “Cobra”. Most items in the collection, including a simili-plain and a faded square motif matching the reptile design, are printed on natural cork. The range is complemented by bi-colored woven raffia items as well as printed plains, most of them enhanced with a shimmer of gold, silver or copper, reflecting light as sunshine on a reptile skin. 

The printed non-woven wallcoverings are FSC certified (mark of responsible forest management), are made with recycled fibers, are printed thanks to solar energy, have a good light resistance, a European fire rating B S1 D0 as well as a marine certificate.

Charlotte Moss Collection

Charlotte Moss has created two incredible collections for Fabricut. The second collection debuted only last year in 2015 and is a must see! If you haven't stopped by the J Lambeth showroom in the #WDCDesign Center, make some time and drop in to speak with the wonderful sales associates and have them walk you through the Charlotte Moss collection. 

Charlotte’s inspiration for her collection is drawn from antiques, vintage documents, architectural themes and, of course, her garden. Direction and inspiration for the collection was found primarily within her immense anthology of textile documents, items acquired during her travels and images she's captured behind her camera.

Only a few of the images are displayed here, but you can see the entire collection on the Fabricut website by clicking here.Charlotte-Moss-Trims-3

“Bits of inspiration find you along your path or you find them. However the story goes, there was an attraction, an emotional reaction that caused the two of you to go home together. A tile, a turtle shell, a vintage scarf; a few of the things that inspired this collection..."
