A study in contrasts, this trend-forward direction makes a bold design statement. Its artful juxtaposition of light and dark creates a yin-yang balance of luxe appeal. New signature finishes in elegant shades ranging from Crème lacquer to Gold Eglomise and Brass are paired with timeless black lacquer to accentuate its shapely silhouettes. Luxurious materials are layered for a modern effect that is both approachable and iconic. Rich cut-velvets, custom leathers, faux fur, silk, and embroidered fabrics elevate upholstered pieces while deeply saturated shades punctuate the aesthetic.
The Promethean launch of Caracole’s Signature portfolio celebrates the timeless iconic black and white aesthetic. The acclaimed French designer, Patrick Aubriot, drew inspiration from centuries of perennially popular and infinitely chic French design. Unprecedented originality speaks to its avant-garde French roots, while the complexity of his case and upholstery designs have been flawlessly rendered. Adding provenance are custom intaglios in silver and gold leaf designs, brass inlays, exquisite hardware, and upholstery monograms.
Mixing very classical lines with modern details and materials, the collection is authentic, fresh, and bold. Black and white lacquer finishes layer with rich wood veneers that blend with solid brass, hand applied silver and gold leaf, and acrylic. Upholstered silhouettes are dressed in opulent fabrics – cut velvets, silk, leopard and leather – in hues of black and white with pops of vibrant color in rouge, peacock, and emerald.
