Design Center of the Americas


One of the newer members of the DCOTA family, the ANICHINI showroom opened its doors in April. Revered for their luxurious Italian bedding—sateen and percale sheets, woven tapestries and intricate brocades—they are venturing in to new lands in their pursuit of what they refer to as the “genuine article.” Muga silks from Assam, Tibetan cashmere woven in Nepal, and Ottoman inspired velvets and tapestries from Turkey create sensuous textures and robust colors that dress your bed. Similarly, offerings for the table allow the ANICHINI touch to transcend the bedroom and punctuate the entire home. The unstinting details of classic lines in a modern style delivered through old-world craftsmanship define the essence of ANICHINI.
