‘Colors of Light’ — Textile Facets of Light

Color and light go together like day and night. The constant change throughout the day controls our way of life and affects how comfortable we feel in an environment. This makes light control one of the most important factors when it comes to decorating. We use light to brighten and clarify activity. In contrast, the absence of light invokes nocturnal peace and elegance. The fabrics and colors in the new ADO autumn collection play with light in a variety of ways. They filter, amplify and dim it. And together, with radiant autumn tones, present modern living spaces in the very best light.

Prolong the Summer — Printed Fabrics

Why turn back the clocks when summer was so beautiful? Our new printed fabrics bring nature into your interiors. Grass, flowers and butterflies give a carefree, light airy feel to your windows all year round and unceremoniously block out winter.

magnifica-8055-453_talis-1516-554-664-884Magnifica 8055  |  Printed Sheer  |  100% PES  |  116″ length
The dazzling rich colors of a vivid swarm of butterflies unfold on this semitransparent printed fabric in two color variations: late summer vibrancy and delicate spring. This creates a light, feminine atmosphere in country cottages, penthouses and everything in between.

poppy-8054-853Poppy 8054  |  Printed Sheer  |  100% PES  |  116″ length
The abstract poppies bloom in a light and airy setting on a fine textured background. The floral pattern looks as if it has been applied with a watercolor brush and radiates joy in three fine color combinations.

liana-9812_110Liana 9812  |  Burnout Printed Sheer  |  65% PES, 35% CO  |  118″ length
The floral vine pattern sits on a linen-like base fabric and displays an exceptionally natural radiance. In a delightful interplay of transparency and density, it creates a decorative play on light and shadow at the window.

A grand entrance for grass. It gives the burn out pattern inspired by nature a graphic touch that interprets the contrast between transparent and opaque in modern linearity.

Multifaceted Play of Light — Single-Color Fabrics

These single-color fabrics deliver the desired dose of light in the room at any location: gently toned from fine batiste, finely dimmed with a transparent linen structure or reliably obscured using dense dim-out fabric.

This especially soft flowing fabric resembles linen because of its structure. It is captivating both visually and to the touch. The palette of colors provides variety with attractive neutrals in numerous nuanced shades of cream, silver, sand, taupe and anthracite.

finn-3228-112-433-533-683Finn 3228  |  Batiste  |  100% PES  |  116″ length
The natural-looking batiste in 21 pastel shades—from muted to colorful—is an ideal partner for the printed fabrics in the collection. A decorative flamée effect gives vibrancy to this versatile single-color fabric.

This modern blackout fabric has a high fabric density that allows it to regulate temperature. It blocks out cold in winter and excess heat in summer. With a fine yarn mix in 24 inviting colors, it is also highly recommended based on all decorative criteria.

The Single-Color Fabrics

arik-3094-200_avalon-2562-392Here we find subtle differences.
