Founded in Yecla in 1986 by Antonio Muñoz, an experienced traditional upholsterer who wanted to take advantage of new production technologies –hence the name-, TECNI NOVA is currently run by the third generation who has invested on cutting-edge manufacturing processes focusing on the internationalization of the brand. Changes in manufacturing processes allowed the firm to renovate the formal classic style by breaking rules and introducing into its latest collections unusual twists and more contemporary designs.
A clear example of TECNI NOVA’s new way of understanding luxury furnishing is the FORTUNE II Collection, which can be considered the extension of the former, successful FORTUNE Collection. Top quality materials, artisan mastery, design and the evocation of the firm’s founding culture are at the heart of this new approach of the brand to luxury home décor concepts.
Featuring a sophisticated design, clean lines and well-proportioned volumes, the collection includes a complete range of pieces for different ambiences: sofas and armchairs, bedroom and living room programmes, dining room sets, coffee tables, chest-of-drawers, wardrobes and bar cabinets. All the furniture is made of the finest materials, such as select leathers and noble and exotic woods (ebony, oak, iroko, sycamore frisé, walnut), and finished with fine lacquers and metallic accents that add style and distinction to pieces.
Lacquer and fabric colours, as well as textures, are inspired by the Mediterranean landscape and culture. For the new selection of fabrics, the firm has followed mainly the latest trends working in collaboration with interior designers to develop a rich range of textiles that integrates new vibrant, vigorous colours, high performance levels and geometric patterns.
The neutral and earthy tones, which are represented by a wide spectrum of greys, browns, beiges, blues, greens and turquoises, are a perfect choice when it comes to create attractive yet relaxing interior schemes.
Take for example the impressive 4228 bedroom. With its turquoise and beige tones, it totally evokes the relaxing atmospheres of the Mediterranean coast. The upholstered headboard features an intriguing design made of hexagons that recalls a honeycomb.
Bolder, intense colours have also been added to complement or create contrasts and provide furniture with a greater appeal: wide red, mustard, pumpkin orange and different shades of pink.
With its organic, enveloping design and the attractive structure made of oak, the 1290 lounge chairs can come upholstered in pumpkin orange high quality leather or in a mustard velvet to enliven contemporary scheme and add intrigue.
The floral prints, with tropical birds and jungle vegetation, dress the cushions adding a colourful, exotic touch to sofas and armchairs.
Together with textiles and colours, high-gloss finish is the other great protagonist of the FORTUNE II collection. They are applied over metallic lacquers, natural wood veneers and coloured surfaces to make furniture look brighter and smoother, enhancing this way the glam look of ambiences.
Textures and shapes have also been inspired by traditional crafts, such as the artisanal baskets with their structure made of interwoven esparto, palm and wicker. As if they were traditional objects built with reeds, the tables and consoles of the 4230 series and the 4231 sideboards evolve towards a more sophisticated world that beautifully mix steel finished aged brass, marble, glass and wood.
Goldsmithing has also been another source of inspirations for polished or bright metallic finishes, focused on colours such as copper, bronze and anthracite. Metallic lacquers are one of the hallmarks of this collection, especially the copper colour that in the 4233 containers come in combination with high-gloss ebony for a more luxurious look.
They are so beautiful and well-executed that can be used as space dividers in spacious rooms.
Dining room furniture of the series 4221 stands out for the stunning combination of top-quality leather, natural walnut wood and metallic accents. The 4221 dining table features an attractive wooden base that support a round or rectangular tops embellished by refined, beautiful grain.
The trend for luxury and rich expression is obvious when it comes to sofas, armchairs and ottomans. They are all big, soft, enveloping the body into velvet, leather and rounded shapes. In the FORTUNE II collection, clients are spoilt for choice as the new models include from the classic designs (1741, 1735) to the more contemporary proposals for ambiences full of comfort and style (1714, 1716, 1750, 1742, 1745 and 1739).
The refined silhouette of the model 1750, with its sophisticated haute couture details, brings elegance to the next level.
All the models are beautifully complemented by marble and wooden surfaces, metal structure, glass and aristocratic metal-coloured elements: brass, copper, silver or golden shine.
Among the complements, the charming turned-shaped 4226 side tables stands out for the amazing combination of metallic lacquers, marble, leather and wood.
You can play also with the different versions of the 4227 side tables that mix materials (wood, marble, glass) and dimensions to add dynamism and distinction to lounge spaces.
With FORTUNE II, TECNI NOVA has built a complex and diverse decorative universe full of colours and exclusive details. We invite you to enter it and find your space…
