Step inside the new and improved D-Shop Ibiza Design showroom, and you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped inside an haute couture exhibition. Lining the walls of one room – like a gallery of resplendent ball gowns – are a selection of incredible designer interiors fabrics created by the renowned designer Michele Rondelli for Jakob Schlaepfer.
Forget your average curtains, wallpapers and home textiles – this collection is, quite simply, a decorating masterpiece. Using cutting edge technology like laser cutting, digital printing, multiple layers to create shadows and three-dimensional effects, paper mache style sculptural effects, beautiful colour gradiations and fabrics so fine they are like gossamer silk, Rondelli brings your every haute couture fantasy to life.
Jakob Schlaepfer’s collections have been commissioned by some of the most impressive brands in the world, including Prada, Gucci, Hermes and many more of the high-end catwalk labels. And it’s not only fashion labels looking for inspiration – you’ll find the fabrics lining the plush interiors of high-end Mercedes vehicles, the glamorous wallpapers decorating opera houses, luxury spas, restaurants and the world’s most elegant homes.
Here in Ibiza, respected interior designer Paola Madurga de Uruñuela of D-Shop Ibiza Design and her team can create any effect, surface, soft furnishing or style you dream of in association with Jakob Schlaepfer – the only limit is your imagination. Whether it is a headboard for your bed made entirely of sequinned panels, feature walls created using the vibrant wallpaper patterns, blackout curtains with bespoke digital prints, flowing curtains for wedding decoration or opulent soft furnishings that glimmer in the sunlight – no project is too big or too small.
The only (first world) problem is… with each and every fabric sample so exquisitely beautiful in its creation, how do you select just one?
