Chicago, IL, September 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- While the art-inspired Gallery collection offers several unequivocally beautiful fabrics, it truly focuses on introducing high-performance textiles suitable for institutional, contract, education and healthcare interiors.
Seven new core fabrics especially speak to Brentano’s motto of beauty + performance. By Brentano’s definition, core fabrics must meet a difficult, delicate balance of criteria that satisfy what every contract designer looks for: a usable pattern, a comfortable hand, superior performance, affordability, and versatile colors. New fabrics like Acanthi, Albers, Delaunay, Leger and Mythos meet these expectations while also offering exciting interpretations of artistic works from Henri Matisse, Josef Albers, Sonia Delaunay, Fernand Leger, and Yong Ho Ji.
Faux leather Perspective adds to Brentano’s expansive line of successful eco-friendly fabrics. Named for “the technique used to represent a three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional surface,” this 54” upholstery is embroidered to create a visually compelling pattern. With its outstanding hand and wearability, Perspective is ideal for a range of contract environments.
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.
