The Medici design has been a Gainsborough mainstay for almost a century, with each generation discovering anew its rich colouring and depth of weave structure. The original colourways continue to delight customers in search of a traditional Damask that works flexibly in interior schemes; no wonder it was used on the set of Downton Abbey!
The Renaissance Collection features the Medici in four new colourways but we felt that this stalwart of the Mill warranted a reinvention in its own right. The House Medici collection brings together 10 all-new colourways that straddle the traditional and contemporary. The weft yarns – dominated by golden hues in past Medici designs – are now neutral or silver in tone, and linen has been employed to lift these quintessential Gainsborough designs yet further out of the ordinary.
