ABOUT DE LE CUONA

 

It was a love of linen and an attention to detail that first fired Bernie de Le Cuona’s desire to create beautiful fabrics.

She crafted her very first design into a cushion which buyers ordered immediately. Now after some twenty years in the business Bernie has a reputation that is second to none for developing exquisite fabric collections harnessing the colour and beauty produced by the best International master weavers. Her immense skill and natural flair for fabrics also demands a refined finish, look and drape which make them truly unique.

Artisan techniques underpin each new fabric introduced into the collection – Bernie has led the way with stone-washed linens, embossed linens and the use of tonal wool yarns to add a special dimension to unique embroideries on superb quality linen base cloths and, of course, her signature wool and cotton paisleys which are recognised worldwide. Her cushion collection enjoys the same reputation.

 

 


The company’s growth has moved the hub of the business from an understated carriage house to Mistress Page’s House in Windsor.

The Mistress Page’s House has been a listed building since 1975 to retain its English heritage and character. Located right in the centre of Windsor and opposite the three towers of Windsor Castle, the modern warehousing carrying the complete collection of fabrics and accessories is just a stone’s throw away.

The Design Centre Chelsea Harbour showroom and 24 Pimlico showroom in London draws many International clients to the collection. While flagship showrooms in Moscow and the D&D Building in New York demonstrate the de Le Cuona look to a wider audience. There are now ten third party showrooms across the USA and Canada.

To service the ever growing demand for ’de Le Cuona style’ Bernie has added an eclectic mix of rich textured materials that accomplish a look of soft glamour and understated elegance; these are known as the ‘Eclectic Collection’. When schemed with the subtly textured simplicity of the linens or the grandeur of the paisleys, the Eclectics round-off the collection which offers discerning customers all the elements for a beautiful and comfortable home.

DE LE CUONA at DIMOREGALLERY
Milan, Salone del Mobile 2018, 17-22 April 2018

 

We are delighted to share the images of de Le Cuona travel-inspired fabrics that were part of of the DIMOREGALLERY installation by DIMORESTUDIO for Salone del Mobile 2018. "Transfer" was based on the idea of a journey across distinct cultural ambiences and unusual aesthetic settings. For Bernie de Le Cuona travel is the bedrock of originality and gives her designs a rich evocative identity with names often embedded in the names of her fabrics.

 

 Antique Paisley - Brick

 

 Buffalo - Rage

 

 Grand Safari - Delta

 

 Prince of Wales - Tan
