USA- New York, NY | Oct 20 2012 | (23:12:34 - EDT)
Wolf-Gordon debuted the latest additions to its sophisticatedly durable Metropolitan textile catalog: Rush Hour, High Rise, Wander, and Boutique. They will be on view together with the collection’s most recent releases—Flatiron, Grand Central and Grand Army Plaza—at NeoCon East at the Baltimore Convention Center.
“We’ve designed a short range of classics, from solid and small-scale textures, to larger scale geometrics, that not only enhance our Metropolitan offering, but respond exactly to what hospitality and healthcare designers need now,” explains Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer.
Woven in the award-winning Bella-Dura construction, a proprietary olefin blend, Rush Hour, High Rise, Wander, andBoutique upholstery textiles have aesthetic resilience ideal for withstanding the most demanding commercial settings.
Each item is solution-dyed, bleach cleanable, and packed with silver ion technology for antimicrobial protection. They are perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications as they withstand over 1,500 hours of UV light and over 50,000 double rubs on the Wyzenbeek test.
Rush Hour is a complex, solid-colored weave offered in 16 colorways; Highrise, a stripe with plaid intentions, offers depth and layering in 12 colorways; Wander, a collage of urban tissue from European cities, is offered in 12 colorways; and, Boutique, a new, woven interpretation of a reptile skin in 12 different shades—is a perfect complement to any upscale handbag.
Flatiron, Grand Central and Grand Army Plaza are all high-performing 100% solution dyed nylon textiles, exceeding 100,000 double rubs on the Wyzenbeek test. Inspired by building crafts, weaving and embroidery, the patterns exude a diversity that can accommodate all types of commercial furniture, from corporate to hospitality.
Flatiron is a small scale geometric composed of circle and oval shapes that convey a perforated metal look. This highly usable pattern has been colored in a palette of clean industrials, bright orange, blue and black-on-black.
Grand Central is a small-scale digital stripe that has classic menswear appeal. These saturated, multicolored blends always look modern—never tweedy—in a generous selection of blues, greens, purples and browns.
Grand Army Plaza is this update’s tri-colored homage to embroidered looks. Horizontal float yarn “stitches” act as background to oval medallions of irregular shape for an overall handmade impression.
All seven textiles exceed ACT standards for contract textiles and are finished with GreenShield™ technology, a spill and stain-resistant nanotechnology that is third party certified by SCS for low VOC’s. These newest additions to the Metropolitan Collection demonstrate Wolf-Gordon’s continued commitment to the growth of its upholstery offering.
