Pick the Right Material For You

Design Advice and Swatch Service

To guide you in making the right choice, we have samples of all the fabrics, materials, marbles and finishes and are happy to set up an appointment to guide you through these, either in our Teddington office, by virtual meeting or at a central London location.

We can also organise to send you samples for many of the fabrics and materials offered, subject to availability, of course.   It’s easy, just peruse the collections and add your chosen swatch options to your shopping basket.  We do charge a fee for our sample service of £50 which will be added at the checkout stage, but this is fully redeemable against your purchase.  As samples are generally requested from Italy, it may take 5-10 days to get these to you.

We offer a complimentary returns service for any unwanted swatches and these are sanitized using Ozone technology and re-used, rather than ending up in landfill.

Please be aware that there may be very slight differences in colour shading/finish between sample swatches and the goods supplied.

Explore Tacchini’s “Dress Code” Fabrics
and other Materials

A heritage Italian brand, founded in 1967 at an exciting time in the story of design.  The evolution of the brand from generation to generation positions the strength of the idea as central to every creative process, in a logical process of evolution, from the analysis of the idea to the three dimensions of the object, before ultimately becoming the essence of living. This ongoing process ensures a sense of connection with contemporary style, which is then further enhanced by the choice of quality materials and leading-edge technology, and always referencing an all-important tradition, to avoid the danger of confusing style with fleeting fashions and design with simple mass production. With many of Tacchini’s upholstered items, you not only have the choice of fabric, but also for the legs and even the stitching!  

For other items such as tables, you can pick your choice of surface such as marble and also the legs.  Explore by individual product to see which fabrics and materials it is available in and how you can personalise to suit your preferences.

You may also want to explore the Tacchini materials brochure to learn more about how each of these materials is produced/selected, as well as care instructions.   Worth noting, when selecting marble finishes, there is generally an optional supplement for an anti-stain treatment which we highly recommend to help protect the beauty of the surface.

A Treasure Trove of Metals from De Castelli

A crossroads between fine craftsmanship, advanced technology and aesthetic research, the De Castelli furniture collection interprets the potential of metal as a flexible material to create stunning objects for your home.  

Folding metal to adorn furniture and architectural space requires knowledge and love for the material and its expressive potentialities, as well as great creativity and continuous technological research. At De Castelli, the philosophy and expertise in execution give life to pieces of furniture, wall coverings and projects of the highest manufacturing quality and an astonishing array of forms. The meticulous attention to details and the manual execution of all finishing operations testify to the expertise of a company whose very identity and raison d’être is to experiment with metal and explore the full potential of its variations and permutations.

Oxidation, inlaying, engraving and erosion processes: such is the multitude of creative possibilities that can be applied to a constantly-changing material, whose destiny is to acquire the patina of time that the hand of man can stop entirely or speed up, according to the surface effect sought. Metal creates a richly-varied palette of iridescent tones, oxidations and deep colours and provides a highly-distinctive form of artistic expression, celebrating the essential nature of the material itself in its aesthetic and symbolic value.

For inspiration, you might enjoy taking a virtual tour of the simply stunning brand new De Castelli showroom in Milan.

SLIDE uses this most versatile of material to create endless possibilities

The material polyethylene may not initially sound too alluring but stick with us, SLIDE works its design magic and specialist knowledge in production using it to create brilliant products for indoor and outdoor use.   

All products are designed and manufactured in Italy and SLIDE combines advanced technology together with craftsmanship.  Using the industrial process of rotational moulding, then finishing each product by hand after it has been extracted from the mould, allows it to be more polished, more uniform and unique at the same time. 

Inspiration comes from nature, as well as art and some ranges feature finishes such as Japanese paper, a weave of leather, the tiles of a mosaic. Baroque and colourful items match with natural shades of stones, wood and marbles. And some products offer choices of table top finish including HPL and tempered satinated glass.

Understated luxurious linens from Once Milano Virtual Studio

Our exquisite Once Milano’s products are 100% handmade in Italy using only the finest materials made by skilled artisans.  The Veneto region where Once Milano is based is where the textiles and design industry has flourished.  An area where families (even whole towns) were devoted to developing an extraordinary expertise and knowledge in textiles.  

Each piece of fabric is hand-cut, sewn and then dyed in vibrant and seasonal colours – this creates a rich, unique effect unachievable with machine production.  The signature crushed style exudes a sophisticated understated elegance, is easy to care for and does not require ironing.

You can pick from over 20 colours of linens in your selected bedding or tableware.  Although every effort is made to ensure a uniform colour for each individual product, this can not be guaranteed and some difference in colour is possible.

The products are developed with a keen eye for detail which includes fringing, piping and macramé edging. We can also arrange bespoke pieces in different sizes if required, as well as personalised embroidery and monogrammed items – please just ask for details.
