Brilliant toile, flowery chintz and lush jacquard have long defined the aesthetic of textile designer Manuel Canovas. After completing studies at the Beaux Arts academies in Paris and Rome, the French-born Canovas launched his fabric house in 1963. Ever since, his painterly skill and keen interest in botany have shown themselves in the label’s masterful works, which include luxury bedding, table-linen ensembles, furniture upholstery and wall coverings.
