Don’t call it ombré: Launched at Salone Del Mobile this spring, the Six Shades of Palmer sofa by Fendi Casa boasts a particular dégradé effect, with six shades that span varying intensities. The modular sofa, available only as a custom piece, made its initial debut at the newly opened Fendi Casi flagship store in the heart of Milan.
“The Six Shades of Palmer by Fendi Casa is a sofa with strong charisma, like the Fendi woman,” designer Toan Nguyen shares of his inspiration. “It stands out for its surprising dégradé effect that gives it a unique personality. We’ve presented a completely unique configuration by using macro-lines on 3-D textures, experimenting with a chromatic palette on color-contrast cushions, and adding a dynamic touch to the sofa structure. The design will elegantly furnish the living area of a contemporary yet sophisticated residence, surrounded by an intimate and warm atmosphere.”
Why red-pink? Toan explains, “On the occasion of the Salone del Mobile fair, we wanted to present a creative proposal that reinterprets the graphics of the Fendi Maison and embodies the perfect synthesis of the Fendi woman’s dualism. We selected a chromatic scale of six shades ranging from an intense passion red to a delicate powder pink to reflects the unique aspects and moods of the Fendi woman.”
The response so far, Raffaella Vignatelli, president of Luxury Living USA, tells EAL, has been “outstanding.” She adds, “It was very well received when we exhibited the sofa as a preview in the new Fendi Casa flagship store in Via Montenapoleone 3. The Six Shades of Palmer sofa epitomizes luxury as an exclusively made-to-order piece, which suits our clientele very well. They prefer the option of bringing an original piece of furniture, like a commissioned piece art, into the home.”
