I love a collection with a story, especially if there is a literary inspiration behind the design. Nina Campbell's Paradiso collection for Osborne & Little references Dante Alighieri's poetry (1265–1321) and Renaissance Florence. A fresh take on traditional is always…refreshing!
This scrolling paisley is named for Beatrice, whom Dante met as a child of ten and remained entranced with for the rest of his life.
Again referencing Beatrice, this embroidered damask on linen is named for her home Portinari. Her character served as Dante's guide in the last book of The Divine Comedy.
This opulent pattern is aptly named Paradiso, after the final book. With a vertical repeat of 30", it would be divine for drapery.
The Paradiso collection includes multiple colorways in the patterns shown, as well as a selection of weaves and coördinating wallpapers. Shown below, 'Rosa Alba' as fabric and wallpaper.
Who knew cabbage roses could be so chic? Check out the entire collection online, or contact me for a closer look.
