Kvadrat : A connoisseur of textiles

If you are someone who loves textiles, wovens and colors, you cannot, but fall in love with Kvadrat. Recently I had the privilege of visiting their store in Milan, Italy and was floored by their detail in color, design and products.
A little bit about Kvadrat; Kvadrat was established in Denmark in 1968 and now holds a leading position in the European market of design-textiles supplying renowned architects, designers and furniture manufacturers throughout the world, for use in upholstery and curtains.The company continuously seeks to push the aesthetic and artistic boundaries of textiles, working the world’s top designers, architects and artists including Alfredo Häberli, Peter Saville, Akira Minagawa, Tord Boontje, David Adjaye and Olafur Eliasson.

Kvadrat’s first textile ‘Hallingdal’ has become the archetype of woollen textiles. The very durable upholstery fabric was originally designed in 1965 by Nanna Ditzel, and is now available in a version with an updated colour scale: Hallingdal 65.

  1. I love the way the colour has gradually changed across the sofa.
