Fort Street Studio was pleased to participate in the Salone del Mobile 2021 in Milan as a part of the Fuori Salone satellite events curated by Interni Magazine.
We chose this event as our first live exhibition that concurred with our 25th anniversary year because the Salone is the ultimate in design exhibitions and we wanted to celebrate the publication of A Tale of Warp and Weft: Fort Street Studio, with our Italian publisher, Rizzoli. Very special pieces were designed and produced for the occasion which are additions to our Thai Silk collection that began 5 years ago. (Details on our production in Thailand can be found in our earlier journal post.
Our rugs were displayed at the studio and showroom of L’Artigianato in a beautiful palazzo which sits on Piazza Castello with a view of the 15th-century fortress on the hill. We are very grateful to interior designer Eric Egan and his team who hosted us for the week.
The showroom/apartment boasts a lush interior with impeccable decor, upholstered and wallpapered walls. The exuberant wallpaper in the main sitting room was hand printed by Fromental in the Bargello design created by Eric Egan himself. This wallpaper was the inspiration for the colorway our new Mason carpet and the two played in perfect harmony.
Fort Street Studio created a special rug for the living room MASON II in custom Blue Gold colorway inspired by Fromental’s Bargello wallpaper in Parham.
