Welcome Back collection by Fi
The collection recalls timeless furniture pieces inspired by Romanticism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Bauhaus, redefining them by contemporary standards to evoke their former glory in an updated, futuristic edition.
The uninhibited use of colors, materials and compositions recalls the days gone by of interior design, when the possibilities went beyond the basics, allowing for unrestricted, dynamic and diverting spaces that suggest happiness, attention to detail and individuality.
At the conceptual level, this collection is a tribute to the freedom we enjoy during childhood, an inherent right that we leave behind when we enter adulthood.
Metal is used throughout collection, in particular the twisted rods reminiscent of old-fashioned metal welding. Other materials include wood, mirrors, wired glass and velvet and leather upholstery. The lively color palette references a time period when design was conceived to inspire diversion and joy. sofialvarado.com
