ROMO Showroom Presents:

Tabala Fabric & Wallcoverings collection from Black Edition

ROMO Showroom, Suite C-162

The Tabala Gabric and Wallcoverings collection from Black Edition is a  curated body of work comprising an artistic and tactile offering. Distinctive designs inspired by abstract art, elegant silhouettes, and graphical forms, in a powerful palette of earthy tones, deliver meaningful impact while allowing the textural backdrops to sing. Sophisticated jacquards, delicate embroideries and opulent velvets exemplify a sense of luxury, further enriched by a restrained palette of elegant shades considerately chosen to allow the design and quality to take center stage.

For the Wallcovering Collection, an experimentation of texture, organic grounds of raffia and grass cloth exude a trace of hand, while irresistible flock and metallic intonations offer an element of luxurious design, synonymous with Black Edition. Bold and colorful printed designs appear on woven grass cloth, raffia and other natural, textured grounds to capture and excite the senses.
