Transform your space by decorating with a new colorful ILLULIAN rug and enjoy the most incredible season of the year!
Modern, minimalist, floral and geometric designs abound throughout the rugs of the Design Collection, which draws heavily on the latest trends from the world of fashion.
Dedicated to true design addicts, their colourful appeal means they’ll never stop catching your eye.
The models in this line are unique pieces exclusively dedicated to the nautical world. Inspired by yachting and the open sea, the rugs combine Illulian’s typical aesthetics and creativity with top-quality materials.
All the rugs by Illulian are knotted and carded by hand and can be
in two quality levels: Platinum 120 and Gold 100. Their unique chromatic appeal hinges on the bright vegetal colours that went into their making.
Platinum 120, the most exclusive line, is characterized by the use of top quality wool and silk and the extremely complex handcrafted process – with a stunning 180,000 knots/m2 – that creates highly scenographic sculpted effects. Gold 100 proposes rugs made from wool and silk, with a timeless charm and a density of 86,000 knots/m2.
Illulian’s prestigious showroom, located in Milan’s fashion quadrilateral at Via Manzoni 41, is both a temple of the most innovative proposals, reflecting the latest design trends, and a Mecca for antique rare rugs and tapestries, displaying refined one-of-a-kind specimens of unmatched value. A space which accommodates also refined furniture of contemporary style, prestigious fabrics, unique objects of highly sophisticated design, carefully crafted down to the smallest details.

Salvatore Ferragamo, a world leader in the luxury goods sector, reopened last year its historic store in Canton Road, one of the most prestigious luxury shopping streets in Hong Kong. Fully renovated with a fresh, contemporary design, the store spans a surface area of 680 square metres and holds the complete range of Salvatore Ferragamo Men’s and Women’s collections: bags, shoes, “Creations”, small leather items, RTW, silk accessories, eyewear, perfumes and watches.
The two-storey boutique features a façade of bronze panels illuminated by vertical strips of LEDs, evoking the gros-grain ribbon on the fashion label’s Vara shoes. The Women’s collections are found on the ground floor, and the store entrance opens up to a large, two-storey hall where bags are displayed. Video installations, alternating with special lighting, are projected onto the decorated, illuminated ceiling for a particularly dramatic effect. Bags, jewellery, accessories and RTW are displayed in subsequent rooms, and ample space is dedicated to shoes, with an entire wall devoted to Ferragamo’s Creations.
The travertine and marble floors, furnishings in walnut, polished to a high gloss, with soft, rounded shapes and hardware in brass and steel, and the gold and pink silk velvet settees accentuate the soft, feminine feel and comfort of the Women’s section.
A travertine staircase leads to the Men’s collections on the first floor, which is decorated with a more masculine flair with wood and marble floors, ebony furnishings and leather and light blue velvet settees and chairs. The new store in Canton Road is LEED Gold certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). The renovation, which was designed in accordance with Green Building Council protocol, was recognised for its energy and water efficiency, the excellent choice of materials, management of the work site, innovation and environmental quality.
