These velvets are a spectacle

This article is dedicated to our velvet collections. In Güell Lamadrid we have a wide variety of options in velvet. From spectacular velvets of polyester with a cotton look and feel, to different options with and without patterns, some of retro inspiration, other more geometric fabrics. Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce you:

 

Celestine

Viscose velvet printed with a mineral motif (very trendy), where a flash of color (caldera or blue) gains strength over a suggestive range of neutral colors that blend with elegance between waves to draw this abstract design of super exclusive touch.

 

Celestine collection

 

London

London is a spectacular velvet, with a range of 30 contemporary and impressive colors. It contains 72% polyester, but it absolutely feels like cotton. And that means it has all the advantages of cotton (its appearance, touch and shades of color) and, of course, the advantages of polyester. That’s very important for a velvet, because it is generally a very delicate article, which wrinkles, scratches, damages and looses its hair. The polyester makes it a more resistant velvet. In addition, its maintenance is much simpler.

 

London collection

 

Gropius

A fabric with a retro-inspired geometric pattern in viscose velvet. A fabric which is great for upholstery but that can also be used for accessories and curtains.

 

Bauhaus collection: Gropius

 

Keaton and Buster

Keaton is a smooth velvet imitating cotton but made of polyester, reason why it is washable and very resistant. It has an attractive palette of colors, in which the classic tones are interspersed with the most innovative: mustard, rosewood, orange… Combined with the plain color, we present the hexagonal Buster trapuntatto in 6 different colors.

 

Keops collection

 

Bambara

A velvet jacqard with woolen background which design recalls the ancient shields of the African tribes. Fabrics of ethnic style that Lázaro Rosa-Violán combines with our collection of plain London. Find them in gray and natural colors.

 

Vagabond collection by Lázaro Rosa-Violán: Bambara

Kane

Velvet styled with an original geometric design on a background of great richness, converting it into a very different option from the rest of carved velvets that you already know. An ideal collection for curtains and upholstery.

 

Keops

Velvet is an exquisite, soft and delicate trend. Keops is a sophisticated collection with a wide palette of brilliant tones. It keeps a modern style and a more contemporary line. Fine and sophisticated silky velvet in a wide palette of bright colors, ideal for curtains or bedspreads.

 

Montgomery

A collection that follows one of the most daring trends of Autumn: camouflage. It is composed of two drawings of velvet woven in military-inspired jacquard, which contrasts the nerve and the strength of the fabric with the soft hand of the viscose. The drawings are differentiated by the size of their rapport and we present them in three color combinations: greens, browns and grays.

 

Lotus

A collection of velvety cotton in intense and very stately colors that dress your home with a sublime sobriety

 

Lance

Smooth velvet multipurpose with a viscose look, a spectacular color proposal and an elegant vertical weave effect. A perfect fabric for both upholstery and curtain and complements. Ideal for stylish and sophisticated environments.

 

Paris

Concorde

We are relaunching the glamorous velvet Concorde that is available in 18 colors. It has a very good fall, an adorable touch and, of course, it is a tapestry fabric.

 

 

And since this is all about velvets, we make a tribute to all those theaters and cinemas that have been dressed in large fabrics and upholstery, and we do it with the help of two French photographers, Franck Bohbot and Gilles Alonso.

Franck Bohbot, based in New York, presents his “Cinema” series of empty and silent cinemas to discover in California. The moldings, the frescoes, the patterns and the ceilings are impressive.

The photographer Gilles Alonso highlights the incredible symmetry of the theaters developed in his series entitled “Salles de Spectacle”. The artist visited approximately 30 places throughout France and stood precisely in the middle of each one to capture the symmetry of the entire space.

 

 

And to finish, we would like to include a video of the Royal Danish Theater that captures the essence of day-to-day theaters: https://vimeo.com/166509321.
