Fortuny Interiors by Brian Coleman
Sunday, April 14, 2013
Created by Spanish émigré Mariano Fortuny over a century ago in Venice, Fortuny fabrics today remain among the most luxurious and beautiful printed cottons in the world. Join Brian Coleman, author of Fortuny Interiors, and learn more about Fortuny's rich history and heritage.
Coleman calls Fortuny fabrics "the most beautiful, timeless and unique fabrics in the world." In this lecture, he visits homes from a palazzo in Venice to a country estate in Provence, from a New York Upper East Side salon to a Malibu beach house, and explores how the romance and magic of Fortuny is interpreted today. A book signing with the author will follow the lecture, which is the third in a series called "A Feast for the Eyes: Food, Porcelain, Silver, and Luxury Fabrics."
