    Métaphores’ Saint-Germain velvet is celebrating its 10th anniversary! The house has joined forces for the occasion with Galerie Philia, an international modern art and contemporary design gallery, to present an immersive and fun experience installed in its Paris showroom during Design Week in September.
    Inspired by their shared love of pure and graphic lines, they have created a staging concept based around minimalist pieces by Pietro Franceschini, an Italian designer and architect, covered in Saint-Germain velvet with its exceptionally sensual touch.
    This unique cotton velvet is without a doubt a Métaphores icon. Characterised by its 100% cotton pile of a remarkable height and density, its softness is matched only by its comfort. The iridescent highlights give its texture a voluptuous look with a perfect finish… a finish whose sensations are enhanced by the blissful sensuality of Pietro Franceschini’s sculptural seating, loaned by the Galerie Philia. The result is an invitation to caress its perfect silkiness.
