FDV Collection and Rubelli, a premier Italian textile manufacturer founded in 1858, have joined forces to create an exquisite line of lighting fixtures. The technical mastery, innovation and old world glass blowing traditions of FDV coupled with the exclusive style and heritage of internationally renowned Rubelli are evident in these pieces. Both lines were designed by the talented Marina Toscana.
The Alexandria and Damasco are the new U.S. introductions for this collection. Crafted of the world’s finest materials, including exquisite Rubelli fabrics and gorgeous crystal drops, these dramatically-scaled fixtures evoke classic luxe, in the case of Alexandria, and romance in the case of Damasco. The over-sized proportions of these pieces imbue them with an elegant theatrical quality.
Alexandria includes both a chandelier and a floor lamp. Composed of a pearly white lacquered frame topped by a cream-colored Rubelli cotton and silk damask lampshade adorned with handmade ground crystal pendants, this classically shaped light fixture exudes elegance. Alexandria will complement a wide variety of interior designs, from the most elaborate traditional to the starkest contemporary.
Damasco is available as a chandelier or a floor lamp. The chandelier frame is composed of white lacquered metal, while the floor lamp is realized in metal decorated with gold leaf. Both fixtures are fitted with cylindrical Rubelli ”brocatel” lampshades in black silk and gold linen acetate, featuring a distinctive abstract leaf motif. Cascading pendants of handmade ground glass adorn the shade. Damasco will add a touch of mystery and drama to a wide variety of interiors.
