Since techniques such as patinated bronze, crystal facets, and straw marquetry have been used. In addition, it consists of a series of furniture, lighting for upholstery and accessories in finishes such as wicker, tweed, velvet, rock, crystal, marquetry and mica.
“The fabrics used in this collection include Chanel-inspired tweeds and their“ luxury poverty ”style. “Poor materials”, like straw and rattan, evoke Coco’s ingenuity. She was the best fashion icon of the 20th century, who forged her signature producing luxury sportswear with humble fabrics like shirt and cotton. ”- Francis Sultana

Another great influence for the collection is the designer/artist José María Sert, also known as Jojo Sert. In fact, the original designer was from an immensely wealthy Catalan family of fabric manufacturers. José’s murals covered the walls and ceilings of cathedrals and ballrooms, as well as the Rockefeller Center in New York. For example, pieces such as the Narmina day bed and the Turgi sofa, with their strong bronze columns, recall the decay of Sert’s hand, as well as his preference for generous, yet simplified proportions.
In addition, another key element of the collection is the introduction of rock crystal. Likewise, Misia Sert, Jojo’s wife, and Coco Chanel’s best friend placed crystal shards as decorative objects in her sumptuous rue de Rivoli, apartment in Paris.
Therefore, Sultana reinvented this material. Making the crystal magnificent and modern, working with a meticulous treatment process.
Likewise, apply rock crystal to pieces like the linear and fluent Rocco gueridon.
In addition, Coco’s side table is based on the Petra floor lamp and Nadia table lamp. Consequently, both emit a fascinating shine, similar to semi-precious stones.
