Luster by Virginia Langley
Cortina Leathers is releasing their 2nd collaboration with renowned interior design authority Virginia Langley. Unique to the market, Langley worked with closely Cortina Leathers to add 3 different textural finishes to their best-selling Italian suede collection. The result is a fresh, new look for suede.
For the collection, named Luster, Langley introduces a pressure-meets-texture technique to give these luxurious suedes added texture and longevity that make them perfect for today’s design trends for hospitality markets worldwide. “The velvet organic touch of these beautiful Italian suedes have been innovatively embossed & textured to bring about a sophisticated & luxurious finish,” says Virginia Langley.
Luster is combined of three fashionable and sophisticated styles:
True to its name, this suede breathes a free spirit into interior design. The inventive embossing technique imparts free form, open texture. The result: a sheen that is unusual to suede—one not unlike leather, but that maintains a velvety hand. Available in 4 colors.
Exotic and organic like its namesake: the swaying palm trees of the tropics. Palermo’s fashion-forward, embossed effect is naturally sophisticated with a close texture that invites the hand to reach out and experience the suede softness. Available in 4 colors.
The look of ostrich skin, the feeling of suede. Rendered in a versatile neutral palette, the texture is achieved through a process that maintains softness while imparting unexpected detail. It’s both natural and intriguing—just like the lush African river valley it’s named after. Available in 4 colors.
Cortina on Trend: Contemporary Western
For the new Cortina on Trend collection Virginia Langley curated a grouping of enduring leathers in colors and textures that define this hot trend. These all-natural leathers offer a feast for the senses through touch, sight and scent and contribute to creating a natural environment for our hospitality interiors. Langley comments, “The natural durability of leather is a testament to the longevity and sustainability of this unparalleled material. As current styles prove, Western influence is everywhere in the fashion and interior design markets. I have curated this collection to reflect the trend and inspire your next design adventure.”
Contemporary Western features 14 curated leathers including Italian aniline and suede leathers, along with semi-aniline and nubuck leathers from Germany.
