Society Limonta unveils a new Fall-Winter collection of textiles
Italian contemporary home brand, Society Limonta, released its new Fall-Winter 20/21 collection of textiles for bed, bath and tabletop. Entitled The Inner Garden, the line evokes meditative words such as gentleness, listening, roots, weaving, clay, and harmony.
Nature is also a core element in the collection, which takes inspiration from the chromatic combinations and asymmetrical shapes and designs that occur naturally. To complement the textile assortment, OLTRE Society, the experimental, collaborative, and permanent collection within the brand, is also releasing several new ceramics and home goods this season.
The visual narrative of the new Fall-Winter 20/21 introductions is enhanced by a budding partnership with the floral designer Emy Petrini. Petrini styled many of the setting shots in the new look book, incorporating spontaneous floral compositions using fresh and dried seasonal flowers.
Autumn beds are layered and voluminous, with diverse textures and warm and natural fabrics. The new suite of blankets and throws offers various layering possibilities for the bed or the sofa. Nidone, a wool throw, is a macro interpretation of the traditional waffle weave texture with a contemporary finishing that can be matched and layered with Lam, a bouclé mohair wool throw with a fringed edge. Bou is a wool and alpaca mélange throw—its colour incorporates touches of white, giving it an overall three-dimensional and pictorial effect.
Additional standouts of this season are Klim, a wool throw with a jacquard geometric pattern obtained by combining black with the three seasonal colors, and Wow, a 100 per cent kid wool mohair throw woven to resemble fur.
Two extremely delicate geometric jacquard patterns embellish duvet covers and pillow cases: Mersi, with a diamond motif, and Danke, with irregular micro polka dots similar to small snowflakes. Both patterns come alive thanks to the contrast with the lighter background on the double layered cotton voile. The soft double-faced cotton Miro is now also available as a quilted bedspread. The bed is never fully dressed without the printed pillowcases in ramie, this season including two floral patterns, Nap Viky and Nap Jas, and two geometrical ones, Nap Chain and Nap Los.
Within OLTRE Society Design Collection, Bernardo — the valet stand designed by Dario Antoniali — is introduced. Bernardo is made of a one-piece iron frame and a performance nylon fabric called MELOG that comes in four colors which joins the two backs, creating a useful support for garments and bags.
At the Society table, printed abaca holds center stage with two autumn-inspired designs: Peony, an alluring composition of larger-than-life peonies fading away into romantic splashes of colour, and Patch, a composition of asymmetrically positioned geometrical shapes in an assortment of neutral colors. Finally, perfect for holiday entertaining is Chic, a tablecloth in abaca with exquisite tone-on-tone floral embroidery. It is available in traditional Tisana (green tea) or in the new and elegant CRAB green.
Society’s table is also enhanced by Society Limonta Ceramics Limoges Porcelain tableware designed by Beatrice Rossetti. Every piece in the collection is hand-made, finely crafted and an immediate upgrade to any dining table’s mise en place.
From September onward, Society Limonta will also exclusively distribute worldwide ART ON THE TABLE by Martina Geroni. The ceramic collection consists of multifunctional everyday objects for the table made from clay. Guided by both ethical and aesthetic values, Geroni’s process prioritizes architectural products that are made by hand, and environmentally conscious composed of clay mixed with natural waste.
Designed by Dario Antoniali, the Limoges Porcelain vases Cloto, Lachesi, and Atropo are inspired by a common object found in textile factories, a bobbin of yarn. The vases are named after the three Greek goddesses who hold the human thread of life. They are known to recreate a journey into materials and philosophy following the invisible trail left by the thread that connects everything.
Another bathroom introduction is Dario Antoniali’s Isacco, a laundry basket designed exclusively for the OLTRE Society Design Collection. Shapeless Shape is the phrase that best describes its functionality, as it changes form based on the garments that are placed inside. The iron frame supports the basket, which is made of Melog, a paired nylon chosen for being stretchy and resistant. Inside the basket white and colored garments can be kept separate thanks to the useful partitioning.
The practical — yet luxurious — scarf protects in its reassuring embrace, recreating the sensations of warmth and intimacy we feel when at home. At the same time, it serves as a fashionable accessory. The latest additions to the collection are two light and airy scarves made of gauze fabrics and available in delicate color nuances. Mohair is a weightless veil made of mohair wool and dyed in autumnal colours, while Cash is a cashmere gauze scarf with a jacquard pattern of macro-squares.
