One of Turnell & Gigon’s foundational principles is that textiles are the very bedrock of any home interior. Turnell & Gigon have become the distributors of some of the finest interior decoration fabrics created by some of the most distinguished designers globally. These luxurious fabrics can be used in upholstery, wall coverings, curtains, and accents (from drapery on poster-beds to scatter cushions, bolsters, piping and gimp). Turnell & Gigon pride themselves in the fabric houses they represent, which include some of the most sought after brands in the industry [Clarence House, Neisha Crosland, Charles Burger, Veraseta, Edmont Petit, Nicky Haslam, Braemore, Allegra Hicks, Schumacher, Decortex, Voghi, Tobias & The Angel, Raoul Textiles, Fondazione Arte, Hill Brown, Palestrina London).
The Turnell & Gigon culture is that of craftsmanship, artistry and quality.
Some examples of this strong focus on exceptional craftsmanship include:
Handblocks held under the Jean Monro umbrella. Jean Monro is one of the few companies still editing hand-block designs.
The Art of Passementerie presents beautiful and intricate trimmings by the incredible collection from Les Passementeries de l’Isle de France, which for 91 years, this family-run company has been creating complex hand made passementeries, with the fourth generation now presiding over a business that strikes a fine balance between tradition and modernity.
