D'Ascoli x Cabana
Trompe L'Oeil Collection
Our Alberti Placemats evoke the opulence of Renaissance pietra dura in an array of precious stone textures printed on 100% linen and backed in hand spun, hand woven cotton printed in a geometric design imitating inlaid wood veneers. The reverse of the placemat features an intricate geometric design reminiscent of marquetry. Sold as a set of four.
The D'Ascoli x Cabana Trompe L’Oeil collection is inspired by Renzo Mongiardino and the home he created in Milan for the mother of Cabana founder Martina Mondadori. The Master adored “trompe l’oeil,” the visual technique of fooling the eye with a decorative painting that creates the illusion of different materials. Two themes Mongiardino returned to again and again were Marquetry - inlaid wood veneers, and Pietra Dura - inlaid stones. For Cabana, D’Ascoli has created a sumptuous layering of faux bois marquetry and faux marble pietra dura effects printed on linen and on hand-spun, hand-woven cotton with hand embroidery.
