Designtex's Harvest Collection with Crypton Green® is a well-balanced textile collection with options ranging from subtle, textural designs to bold statements that color coordinate with the rest of the collection. These versatile upholstery and cubicle products work across healthcare environments, as well as many education, assisted living and hospitality settings. The 100 percent recycled polyester patterns in the Harvest Collection are designed with color options that complement and update existing hospital color schemes, providing healthcare designers a high-performance, sustainable textile with bold, over-scaled patterns and fresh colors typically offered to other markets.
Architex and angela adams have created an exciting new collection of sustainable fabrics made with 100 percent post-industrial recycled polyester. Balancing beauty and functionality, angela adams brings her signature patterns, colors and textures to contract fabric. The collection of durable, luxurious, fashion-forward fabrics includes a mix of organic geometric and nature-inspired patterns designed to create comforting and inspiring environments.Robert Allen Contract gives the refined look and feel of silk an unprecedented usability. Meeting or exceeding 30,000 double rubs, the Contemporary Classics line captures the sheen and elegance of silk jacquard. Fashionable stripes, checks, frames, florals, and geometrics are exquisite in Marie Antoinette-inspired hues of pearl, buttercream, aquamarine, gold and blue chiffon as well as jewel-toned sapphire, rosewood and chestnut. Contemporary Classics are also flame-retardant and washable.
KnollTextiles celebrates its 60th anniversary with the Archival Collection-a collection of upholstery, drapery, wall covering and Imago products based on the company's rich historic past. In order to create the Archival Collection, creative director Dorothy Cosonas did extensive research in the company's archives to find fabrics that were timeless and could be interpreted for today's market. One of the upholstery patterns in the group, Fibra (featured), is available in five colors; is composed of 71 percent cotton and 29 percent polyester; and has a Nano-TexTM finish. Luna Textiles introduces two new multi-surface patterns: Mezzanine and Plaza. Co-designed with Victor Innovatex, the patterns are made from 100 percent Eco Intelligent® Polyester-a Cradle-to-Cradle Gold-certified product. Mezzanine and Plaza are part of a sophisticated new collection, Suite 280, for use in hospitality interiors and beyond. The Suite 280 Collection blends whimsical patterns and rich colors to achieve a distinct, welcoming feel. The Plaza and Mezzanine patterns allude to a delightfully eccentric style that creates a distinct sense of modern glamour. Both patterns reference a historical era of decorative ornamental art, but in a fresh, minimalist approach that incorporates architectural themes.
Pallas® Textiles introduces Tribute, a new environmentally friendly upholstery collection, and one of the first to be made from bamboo fibers. Used for thousands of years across Asia to create architecture and furniture, bamboo is regarded as a symbol of longevity, endurance and perseverance. Yet, only recently has the tropical woody grass become a resource for textile production. The ability of bamboo to grow exponentially, thriving even under extreme adversity, makes bamboo a smart, sustainable alternative. The collection pays homage to the beautiful intelligence of nature, offering a sensual hand, intriguing luster levels, and brilliant color play with the legendary resilience of bamboo.  Drawing on her experience of growing up amidst cornfields in the Northern Illinois countryside, Unika Vaev's director of design, Ashley Allen Short, has created a new group of textiles called the Pastoral Collection. These three new fabrics, Furrows, Windmill and Fleece, are a tribute to this landscape-flat and rolling; shaped as much by farming as by the retreat of the glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age. The Pastoral Collection is rooted at the moment when the land is at its most promising, as the austerity of winter begins to break into the promise of spring.
Spinneybeck introduces Riva, the first full aniline leather suitable for all contract applications. This unique upholstery leather combines the extraordinary natural characteristics and luxurious hand of a naked leather with the performance of a waterproof leather. Available for immediate shipment in 14 saturated colors, Riva resists stains from food and beverage spills and resists fading in direct sunlight, making it appropriate for lobby areas, task and conference seating, as well as executive spaces.
