"Fortuny-the most beautiful, timeless and unique fabrics in the world." -Brian D. Coleman
Manufactured in Venice, Italy, textiles by Fortuny have borne the standard of quality and excellence for a hundred years. For walls, sofas, pillows, draperies, bed coverings, tablecloths, and even napkins, the sumptuous art of Fortuny textiles has been decorating old world and new world homes for generations.
In Fortuny Interiors, gracious homeowners have opened their doors so we can take a peek at these fabulous designs. Through luscious photographs and vivid descriptions, we can almost feel the weave and smell the dyes. Contemporary modern condos, elegant historic homes, and metropolitan apartments all wear Fortuny in luxurious high style.
