Go floral – or go home

In the world of Voutsa, everything is connected.

And this season, that connection is rooted in flowers.

Blooms abound in the new Spring 2019 Floral Collection from the savvy New York company that develops, produces and manufactures seasonal collections of made-to-order wallpaper (produced in America) and fabric (produced in Italy), as well as lifestyle products.

Bianca, for example, is an explosion of influences with an iris taking center stage surrounded by a variety of blue-toned flowers and geometric patterns. Diana, on the other hand, seems to be a step into a vintage boudoir, a rich-yet-subdued take filled with understated pinks, muted reds and soothing beiges. And when it comes to Guinevere’s Chinoiserie design, it’s all rambling delicacy and meandering vines dotted with more muted blooms, a study in pinks and green.

The vibrant designs are also translated to products, with the company manufacturing handcrafted luggage and trunks, limited-edition collaborative furniture and luxury lounge and swimwear. These lifestyle products are available through the New York showroom and select luxury retailers.

We’ve already fallen for the slipper chairs and upholstered screens (how retro), while also noting the distinctive luggage receiving a nod in a recent Town & Country feature.

Voutsa, established in 2014 by George Venson, continues to operate in an ever-growing manner that encompasses product design, customization, commissions, collaborations (from Anthropologie to Savoir Beds), hospitality (from The Peninsula New York to Bergdorf Goodman), licensing and more.

But, we are pleased to note, all artwork for patterns is developed in the Hudson Valley, a studio right in Columbia County’s Claverack.

Nothing like having such a stunning garden of design in our own backyard.
