For its now second collection with Moooi Carpets, introduced in Milan for the 2016 Salone del Mobile, the Christian Lacroix House gets inspired by the exentricity of the Incroyables and Merveilleuses as well as the revival of a proven Paris after the French Revolution. «Malmaison», signature rug of the season, mixes the rigor of Empire style and the folly of Josephine’s rosegardens in a modern evocation of liberty, explosion of colors, flowers and humour. Cheerfullness, chic and energy are the keywords to a collection of refreshing positivity.
Furthermore, the collection offers two carpet designs especially destined to contract and hospitality: «Malmaison», in its all-over version maries the refinement of an exotic essences inlay to the radiance of a petal swirl, and «Palais Royal», trompe-l’oeil style coffered marquetry of precious woods typical of Directoire architecture, offered in shadded colors.
