There are still curiosities a-plenty to share from Cevisama, with a delightful array of fun and decorative pieces that have yet to be given the spotlight. Codicer is always a winner, with displays that consistantly showcase unique designs and heaps of personality. Their 250 by 250mm Graph collection demonstrates this wonderfully with squiggly mix-and-match patterns with naive strokes. The random, sporadic, cartoon lines have a childish quality but somehow bring forward a sense of style in each of the three colourways – Grey, Aqua, and Pink.
Cevica‘s decorative Boom took up rich primary colours and earthy tones. The 140 by 160mm hexagonal hydraulic-look tiles mix-and-match eight designs that have patterns of varying simplicity. Seven colours including Moss, Indian Teal, Snapdragon, and Raw Sienna, each with a notable depth of tone, can be used to complement the decors.
Veneto provided us with many curiosities at last year’s Cersaie, and at Cevisama they presented one design with a delightfully memorable charm. Their stitched patchwork carpet pattern Rug not only stood out for its decorative merits, but also absorbed a few of the trends we saw around the show. This particular design was shown in a panneling format, with a varied-relief listen, and the ‘stitching’ between the carpets not only made reference to weaving, but also featured a shimmer of glitter.
Pamesa‘s Universe was simple but effective. Rich natural tones in varying shades of green work together with decors that feature only a straight or curved line in white. This design takes a standard set of squares and turns it into a wonderfully modern variation that is definitely worth a mention.
