Inspired by modernist architecture and textile traditions from around the world, Larsen Fabrics utilises traditional and modern modern weaving methods to create dimension, shape and texture and showcase the inherent beauty of the yarns. The fabrics are now universally recognised as being innovative in both design and texture – from unusual pocket weaves and printed velvets to leathers and wall coverings.
Established: 1960’s, France
The Parisian fabric house is internationally renowned for the quality of its superior textiles and vivid colours. Each new collection is inspired by the spirit of the ‘Art de Vivre’ associated with 18th France yet re-interpreted into a contemporary design. The distinct weaves and stunning prints are instantly recognisable by their unusual colour harmonies. The high style prints and wallpapers have led to Manuel Canovas becoming a distinct choice for interiors.
