HOME FURNISHINGS AND HOME DESIGN: FURNISHING IN TROPICAL STYLE
The new summer collection from Coincasa is a kaleidoscope. The furnishing colours are all about memories from a trip to Cuba, where nature and colour abound: green, orange, red, yellow - lively brights, straight out of nature, but also on the facade of palaces, in tropical cocktails and along the streets. A furnishing collection that is like an adventure in colour, a tribute to freedom, in tones that are sometimes informal and fun and at others, more strictly elegant.
Unspoilt nature is the main inspiration, including exotic flowers and jungles, leaves in deep, saturated colours that emerge from the shadows to create unusually elegant combinations. Tropical fruits and flowers and flourishing leaves are a favourite design, together with paradise landscapes, tropical fish, parrots and birds of paradise.
TABLE AND KITCHENWARE
The tableware comes in bold designs, table cloths in multi-coloured designs, with strict contracts that alternate with jungle prints in a green palette on light and dark backgrounds, combined with white ceramics or wood accessories.
Artisan-made remains an important part of the collection and is especially expressed in the hand-painted ceramics of the vases, in the collection of decorative plates and the table accessories, including a fantastic range of prestigious Portuguese workmanship. The summer table is also available in a fun version, interpreting the theme of “Happy Fish”: a motif using stylised fish, created in artisanal ceramics, painted by hand, with coordinated glassware and textiles in a palette of light blues.
Other fun items include the line of melamine dishes with a tropical theme, combined with textile accessories, runners and table mats with a watermelon theme. Perfect for a picnic, a lunch on the terrace or a meal on the beach.
SUMMER BED LINENS
The bed linenrange follows the same logic: cool sheets and duvet sets made in 100% cotton percale with detailed and digital prints, or flounces in broderie anglaise, with the exclusive lightweight addition of muslin. The palette here is also all about tropical brights: the greens and natural chlorides of leaves, together with white broderie anglaise trim, and the classical white and blue.
BATH AND BEACH
The themes of the bed and bath linens come together in the bright, vibrant colours of the new collection of towels and robes in terry, with fun and figurative prints, Caribbean landscapes with watercolour designs, and tropical fish. And there is no shortage of jungle prints and blue and white colours with fresh, elegant designs. New for this season, we have a Cruise capsule dedicated to beach towels, cover-ups, and the perfect accessories for a beach holiday or an afternoon by the pool.
LIVING ROOM AND OUTDOOR
The summer living room extends outside to terraces, balconies and gardens. The throw cushions take up the same tropical theme with pictorial designs and geometrical patterns with bold shades softened by natural tones on raw materials. The decorative items are above all baskets, lamps and lanterns in natural materials such as abaca or raffia. Curtains are back in a central role with colourful prints that shine in the sunlight.
The collaboration with Cargo Milano continues for the selection of complementary furnishings. This season sees a spotlight on materials such as rattan and wood, products that integrate with the range by Coincasa.
