Modern Opulence


Damask signals opulence and high drama – a return to classical elegance – but it’s not just palatial homes that can accommodate the recent damask revival. Here are three collections that are embracing traditional design with a twist. The heavily textured ‘Fitzrovia’ from Zoffany’s Phaedra collection (pictured top) features distressed metal hues in its embossed areas, for an alluring shimmer; Cole & Son’s ‘Giselle’ wallpaper (pictured centre) has a strie effect, to mimic silk fabric; and the damask motif even appears on leather, in the shape of Whistler Leather’s modern metallic damask (pictured bottom).
