The new Simply Real Collection from Pallas Textilespairs sophisticated patterns and textures with earthen energy to evoke a sense of simplicity and meaning. The Simply Real Collection features four lines that highlight uniquely hued color combinations in fabrics made of recycled and recyclable materials—each suitable for corporate, education, healthcare and hospitality markets. The collection marks the first collaboration between Pallas Textiles and Designer Laura Guido-Clark.
TheArc-Com Design Studio introduces the beautifully crafted textile, Moon Beam. Employing the use of several novelty yarns, Moon Beam achieves subtle color shifts and a sophisticated look. This versatile Woven Crypton® is available in a range of colors, including warm terracotta reds, contemporary blues and greens, a dramatic brown and sharp black.Emery, one of Allsteel’s new upholstery fabrics, is MBDC Silver certified and is woven with Repreve recycled yarns, which contain a minimum of 10 percent post-consumer polyester and an improved recycling process for the remaining post-industrial content. A multi-color textural pattern with simplicity and visual depth, Emery is offered exclusively on Allsteel’s seating products, including #19, Relate and Sum.
Color has long been a cornerstone of Mokum’s collections and Maroc Outdoor is no exception. Traditional Moroccan mosaic, infused with intricate geometric patterns and bold colors, serve as the inspiration for the collection. Not only do the fabrics complement any outdoor living space, their durability makes them compatible with the elements. Using the latest advances in jacquard construction and synthetic yarn developments, Mokum ensures all fabrics are fully washable as well as water, sunlight, mildew and stain resistant. With Maroc Outdoor, Mokum beautifully translates the ancient craft of mosaic into contemporary, high-performance textiles.With the Juxtaposition Collection, Designtex aligns opposites: hard with soft, shiny with matte, and plush with smooth, for a truly stunning effect. These unlikely combinations create luxurious options not only for boutique hospitality settings, but also for residential and corporate spaces.
Maharam introduces Design 9297 by Josef Hoffmann. Created by Hoffmann in 1913, Design 9297 was never manufactured, and still retains the name assigned to it in the mill archive. To develop the palette, the Maharam Design Studio drew on color references from the early 20th century, including other examples of Hoffmann’s work. Although the original trial sample from 1913 was created with a tapestry construction, the re-edition is rendered in a satin weave; this change in construction creates an elegant sheen and purity of color that further highlights the strikingly modern and graphic nature of the design. Silver State Inc. announces Gytonia, the newest addition to its Aláxi Collection. Gytonia, which is the Greek word for “neighborhood,” was inspired by the warm, gracious ambience of southern interior environments. The color palette of the Gytonia Collection continues to build on the established Aláxi palette and pushes forward into soft, warm, earth-toned colors that emphasize richness of texture with bright accents interjected throughout.
