)-- Brentano will open their flagship showroom in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago this year. The textile design firm makes their debut on one of the contract floors at NeoCon 2013, North America’s largest design exposition for commercial interiors. The occasion marks a huge milestone for the company and launches the textile line into a new era with a renewed commitment to the contract design industry.
“We’re incredibly excited and proud of this moment,” says Design Director Iris Wang with her husband and Co-Founder E-Kwan Chen. “There’s no better time, no bigger platform than NeoCon to show how Brentano does contract.”
Brentano National Sales Manager Jeff Frank adds, “We’ve gained momentum in the hospitality and contract markets over the past few years, and I see this NeoCon showroom as catapulting us to the next level. It’s the perfect opportunity to expose the whole market to our innovative, family-operated line.”
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
