#TEXTILETUESDAY – SLEEP TIGHT, DON’T LET THE LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT!

Our Dim Out collection is a must-have compilation of washable textures in a 98% dim out construction.  The soft, touchable hand and dry finish lend this practical collection an elegant sensibility while meeting the specifications required for an array of commercial settings. Dim Out is not constructed using a foam backing as blackout fabrics are so they will never block 100% of the light.  If you're looking for blackout, stay tuned for our blackout collection to hit the shelves next year! Head over to @zoe.c.anderson’s #TextileTuesday stories to catch a sneak peek of the exciting new collection launching in 2020.

#TextileTuesday – Cozying up with matelassé

Matelassé (mat-la-zay) is meant to achieve a lofty, padded look, without any padding or hand-stitching. This construction is also known as Marseilles cloth as it mimics the style of the hand-stitched quilts originating in Marseilles, France. Although matelassé was originally used mostly for bedding & furnishings, this construction has also found its way into fashion! When it comes to cleaning care, due to its construction consider professionally laundering this fabric to ensure longevity. Our matelassé patterns can be found across a few different collections. Whether it’s residential or performance you are looking for, give us a call and let us help you find the right fabric for your project.

#TEXTILETUESDAY – DANCES WITH WOOL

Wool is a protein-based fiber (keratin) available in many varieties such as: Angora, Cashmere, Mohair, Merino, Vicuna and more! Wool is a very versatile fiber that lends well to several constructions such as tweed, flannel, gabardine, loden and even baize, which is the covering for pool tables! Wool fiber is naturally crimped, providing the interior structure of wool fiber a spring-like characteristic that enables elasticity and exhibits resilience by making wool resistant to sagging and wrinkling. The finer the wool fibers are, the more crimp they have and in turn the better they drape.  The exterior of wool fiber is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water, which also makes wool naturally less prone to staining. Added benefits to wool include anti-static and inherent flame resistance. Follow the link below to cozy up your space with our upholstery rated 100% wool pattern, Cristobal.

PACK A PUNCH: KNOCK ‘EM OUT WITH THIS LATEST COLOR TREND

Color blocking and “pops of color” are taking a backseat to multi-color designs that swirl together contrasting hues in one design or motif. Think of the drama a vibrant Moroccan rug adds to a room. Reaching for a multi-color texture or pattern for a large upholstered piece can provide a jumping-off point for the overall palette of a space, and a chance to add truly unique and personal style. Shop the perfect piece from our Summer 19 collection below!

PARALLEL LINES: STRIPES, CHECKS AND ALL THE RIGHT ANGLES

Stripes and checks of all scales are firmly back in the collective design repertoire. Versatility is key here, and it’s all about the construction: a rich velvet stripe will have a very different impact than a casual twill stripe. Layer different constructions, scales and hues for depth and impact. Our recent Color Waves and Upholstery Palettes Collections offer a variety of options in complementary color stories.  Follow the links for the books below to order memo samples for your next project!

These highlighter-bright hues were seen on fashion runways for upcoming seasons and can be expected to filter into the décor sphere. Lime green, eye-popping pink and saturated orange are couture cool and can be softened by using them in a plush texture like velvet or felted wool.

FROM THE HOUSE TO THE GARDEN: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT INDOOR/OUTDOOR FABRIC

Whether you are upholstering outdoor seating or toss pillows, or simply looking for a durable and cleanable upholstery fabric for indoor use, there are a few factors to consider when selecting indoor/outdoor performance fabrics as they are not all created the same. Depending on fiber type, yarn type and dyeing process, the resulting characteristics can differ widely. Outdoor fabrics brand leaders such as Sunbrella and Bella Dura use solution-dyed yarns for their textiles to create goods that have excellent colorfastness to light in addition to a soft hand and good durability.  In addition to that, Sunbrella and Bella Dura constructions are mildew-resistant as well as water and stain repellant. They are not waterproof. Outdoor fabrics created with solution-dyed yarns are marketed as bleach cleanable, however most soiled areas can be cleaned effectively with mild soap and water. Bleach can have harmful effects on the natural environment and is harsher than is generally needed for household stains.

One of the best ways to keep upholstered pieces and accessories looking fresh in either indoor or outdoor settings is with regular care and maintenance. Brush off dirt before it becomes embedded in the fabric and blot up spills soon after they occur, as the sooner soiled areas are looked after, the easier they are to clean.

Sunbrella and Bella Dura provide five year guarantees in a residential setting for stain resistance, colorfastness to water, light & crocking (transfer of color to other fabrics) under normal usage and exposure conditions.
