Modern furniture dressed in historic fabric.

At the FORMEX commercial fair in January 2010 Durán Textiles presented cooperation with the company Nils Holger Inredning och Design - Nils Holger Interior and Design. A pair of wing chairs with matching footstools was dressed in two of the most popular designs from our historic textile collection: KULLA and RANKA. For this production the designs were printed on a heavier cotton fabric which is wearable, pliable and well fitted for furnishing. The several hundred years old large scale designs in bright colors are well suited to be combined with modern furniture. The blend of tradition and innovation makes the wing chairs into exiting and inviting furniture in a distinguished home furnishing.

Wing chair with matching footstool dressed in the hand printed cotton KULLA. This design is still connected with the colorful flower motifs in Swedish rural rococo and peasant art. The original is a girl’s bonnet from Bjuråker, Hälsingland in the collection of Skansens Klädkammare - the Costume Department of the open air ethnographical museum in Stockholm. This block printed design with hand painted details has its origin in the 18th century, but was printed in Sweden during the 19th century.

Wing chair with matching footstool dressed in the printed cotton RANKA, hand printed with painted details. This print has a typical rococo design inspired by the Indian painted cottons which were very popular in Europe in the beginning of the 18th century. The original is a sample print on paper, preserved in the Anders Berch collection in Nordiska Museet - the Swedish Ethnographical Museum in Stockholm. A written note tells that the design was delivered 1748 to the cotton printer named de Broen, who had his manufacture in Sickla in the outskirts of Stockholm.
The wing chairs are now exhibited in the combined shop and show room at Birger Jarlsgatan 114, in central Stockholm. They are made by order and it is also possible to have them dressed in other designs from Durán Textiles historic collection.
