WOLF-GORDON RELEASES FIRST UPHOLSTERY TEXTILES IN SUNBRELLA® CONTRACT CONSTRUCTIONS
| New York, NY - October 09, 2018 | Wolf-Gordon introduces its first collection of upholstery textiles in Sunbrella® Contract constructions, featuring multi-colored, geometric patterning, engineered to meet the specific challenges of commercial indoor and outdoor environments. Woven in an acrylic/polyester fiber blend, the Sunbrella construction features highly UV-stable pigments which are resistant to fading and the degrading effects of sunlight. The intriguing, structured designs combine upbeat nautical and jewel tones complemented by warm, earthy colorways. Wolf-Gordon’s Sunbrella Contrast constructions have commercial performance features such as high abrasion resistance, lightfastness, mold and mildew resistance, and bleach cleanability.
"With these designs in Sunbrella Contract constructions, we sought to enrich geometric patterning with sophisticated color compositions that juxtapose nautical and jewel toned shades to neutrals, thereby offering our clients enhanced options for coordination with other interior surfacing materials." – Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer
Segment: In Geometry, a line segment is defined as the distance between two points – a concept that is the basis for all architectural drafting. Segment reveals small gaps in a structured pattern of thin stripes in order to create subtle movement. Colorways include combinations of warm beach hues, sun and sea shades, earth tones, and a striking black ground with warm neutrals.
Tangram: Geometric pieces suggestive of the shapes of a tangram puzzle can be seen—and felt—in this lively new Sunbrella® Contract upholstery construction. Soft chenille yarns woven in bold colorways of Mulberry, Ocean and Henna form the angular shapes raised against a weft that integrates multiple compatible hues.
Trilateral: Triangles of nautical, seasonal and neutral colors converge and overlap in this playful indoor/outdoor upholstery textile, well-suited to hospitality, healthcare, and other heavy-use environments.
