Carnegie Fabrics and Swiss textile specialist Création Baumann recently introduced nine new window covering patterns, allowing designers to experiment with a host of applications from outdoor lounges to workplace conference rooms. Since 1974, Carnegie Fabrics and Création Baumann have shared a common world view in design approach, quality, sustainability and technical innovation; these patterns are a continuation of that success.

These technical, functional fabrics are perfect for sunny outdoor spaces, indoor places where light needs to be blocked, and everything in between. Two fabrics—Outdoor Denver 102170 (shown) and Outdoor Miami 102175—pass the contract requirements for both indoor and outdoor use, meaning they are resistant to high UV exposure and pass the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 701 requirements for flammability, a unique feature for outdoor drapery. 

Both functional and innovative, semi-transparent drapery “Outdoor Denver” mimics the beauty of refined linen. Woven with inherently flame-retardant yarns that have been engineered to withstand prolonged exposure to high levels of UV light, “Outdoor Denver” naturally repels water and is resistant to mold and mildew. With a palette of subtle earth tones, this fabric provides optimum color, light, and durability for both indoor and outdoor use.
